1. Visit Victoria Square

Location:Grote St, Adelaide

Located smack-bang in the centre of Adelaide, Victoria Square serves as Adelaide’s heart and is the site of many special events held in the city throughout the year. The square’s centrepieces, the iconic Victoria Square Fountain and statue of Queen Victoria herself, are instantly identifiable with Adelaide, and the square has seen many significant events take place over the years.

2. Explore Glenelg

Location:25-minutes from Adelaide

Contrasting greatly with most images of Adelaide, Glenelg offers more of a resort-style atmosphere with white sandy beaches as far as the eye can see. It’s a lively suburb that blends a seaside atmosphere with a variety of activities including shopping, nightlife, street entertainment and various scenic walks and trails that make exploring its offerings both convenient and enjoyable.

3. Spend the day at Adelaide Zoo

Location:Frome Rd, Adelaide

Perhaps South Australia’s most popular wildlife facility, Adelaide Zoo is relatively small compared to similar attractions in some of Australia’s larger cities, however, it more than makes up for this by offering a diverse array of animals – the main drawcard being their Giant Pandas. In fact, it’s the only destination in the country where you’re able to get up close with these cute and playful large teddy bears, so if you’ve been wanting to see pandas without having to travel overseas, Adelaide Zoo is an ideal choice.

4. Explore Hahndorf

Location:Hahndorf, Adelaide Hills

Hahndorf has a strong European influence and serves as the oldest German settlement in the country. The town features a cavalcade of Euro-centric speciality and craft shops, German-style pubs, and various bakeries that accurately reflect some of the key staples of German culture. Hahndorf’s pleasant location amongst the Adelaide Hills means that it’s not just the architecture and shopping that makes it special, as the city features a relaxed blend of natural greenery that makes for a delightful place to simply walk around and unwind.

5. Climb Adelaide Oval

Location:War Memorial Drive, Adelaide

Experience breathtaking views of Adelaide and its surrounding regions with the Adelaide Oval RoofClimb experience. This is one of the best experiences for sports fans as you can climb to the top of the iconic sporting venue. With the option of a day climb or twilight climb, you can choose to see the oval in all its glory during the day or as the sun goes down and transforms the colours of the region. Not just a great experience for sports fans, this is one of the best ways to go sightseeing in the region as you can look out over the greater region as far as the eye can see.

6. Visit the Barossa Valley

Location:Barossa Valley

Any conversation about the best wine region in Australia mentions the Barossa Valley outside of Adelaide. Considered the unofficial wine capital of Australia due to the sheer volume of wine it produces each year. While it is responsible for the production of all the major types of wines, the Barossa’s speciality has always been Shiraz, largely a result of the region’s warmer continental climate.

7. Dine on Gouger Street

Location:Adelaide CBD

Gouger Street is a dining precinct featuring a number of popular eateries; however, unlike Jetty Road, it sits almost directly in the heart of Adelaide city, making it one of the most convenient places to access for a quality bite to eat for those visiting Adelaide. If you’re willing to take the time, you’ll likely discover some of the best restaurants in Adelaide on Gouger Street.

8. Swim with wild dolphins

Location:Holdfast Shores Marina, Adelaide

The waters off the shore of Glenelg are rich in marine life and are home to resident dolphin pods and sea lion colonies. The dolphins, in particular, are a highlight as these playful, inquisitive creatures will often approach boats and other vessels to play in their wake of their own volition.

9. Explore the delights of Jetty Road

Location:Jetty Road, Glenelg

Jetty Road serves as one of the main dining and shopping districts in the greater Adelaide area with an extensive array of restaurants on offer all within a relaxed, beachside atmosphere. Reached within just over 20 minutes drive from Adelaide city, the large thoroughfare offers the chance to enjoy a quality meal, browse through the shops or simply lounge on the beach and soak up the atmosphere.

10. Taste Haigh's Chocolates

Location:2 Rundle Mall, Adelaide

There are few confectionary outlets in Australia that are as famous and widely regarded as Haigh’s Chocolates in the heart of Adelaide city. A chocolate lover’s dream-come-true, Haigh’s Chocolates are arguably some of the best chocolates in Australia, and its main building adds a dose of historic flair to the proceedings with its interesting architectural design and location in Rundle Mall.
