Adelaide, the capital of South Australia, is a civilised and calm city, that is home to around one million people. It is divided into two parts, Adelaide and North Adelaide, separated by Torrens River. A diverse range of landscapes surround the city, including green parkland, the Mount Lofty Ranges and coastal beaches.
Referred to as the wine and festival capital of Australia, Adelaide is a great place to experience the culture and convenience of a nice sized city without many of the frustrations of a larger city. Adelaide is surrounded by parklands, together with a range of historic buildings, wide streets, various street cafes and restaurants and shops of all descriptions. Walking is a popular way to enjoy the city with several short walks enabling you to enjoy much of the city.
Adelaide is home to the the Clipsal 500 Adelaide V8 race, and the international music festival WOMADelaide. For those into Arts or Festivals, The Adelaide Bank Festival of Arts is very popular amongst festival goers and is consider to be one of the most innovative arts festivals in the world.
Adelaide's city centre has been well planned and is made up of a grid of streets and various squares. Being only one mile square makes it extremely accessible. The main street (King William Street) runs directly from north to south of the city through Victoria Square, which is at the heart of the city.
A great way to explore the city of Adelaide is to take an organised tour. Popular tours include taking a river cruise, an Adelaide guided city tour and visiting Kangaroo Island or the local wildlife parks all of which can be booked online with Australian Explorer.
In addition to these tours, there are some a little bit different which you may like to try your hands at. How about a Mountain Bike adventure, or swimming with dolphins? There are so many choices, take a look at the following page for more information; Adelaide Tours
When it comes to accommodation there are many options, either in the heart of the city or alternatively on the coast, or amongst the wonderful landscape in the Adelaide Hills. Prices vary depending upon what you are looking for.
Again, Australian Explorer can help you with your accommodation bookings.
