Adelaide, South Australia

 

Providing a laid-back and refined alternative to some of the other, more populous Australian capital cities, Adelaide benefits from a wonderful coastal location as well as proximity to a number of must-visit Aussie day trip areas. Add to this its revamped CBD that boasts one of Australia's top dining scenes, reasonable prices and moderate climate, and you’ve got a great all-round city that’s hard to fault.

Why Adelaide?

 

State: South Australia

Why it's special: Lovely architecture; easy access to great day trip destinations; top-notch food and wine scene; highly navigable city for travellers

Best time to go: February - March

Adelaide might not be a city that most instantly think of when conjuring up images of Australia’s top icons, however the city and its surrounding region is full of a sense of uniqueness that can’t be found anywhere else in the country. It's a city bursting with culture, flavours, events and entertainment all in the one hub that allows visitors to taste their way through world-famous wine regions only minutes away from the city, soak up the sun at picture-perfect metropolitan beaches, join the party at immersive festivals and events, or spend the night exploring buzzing restaurant and small bar scenes.

Its strong European influence plays a large hand in this fact; the blend of wineries and vineyards with charming Euro-style architecture makes Adelaide as a city feel more akin to something you might come across in Germany or France rather than a typical Aussie capital.

Its churches are, obviously, a prime example of this, however the overall cultural focus of many of the city’s major attractions and galleries are a large contributing factor too – if you’ve got an eye for culture or history, there’s always something to keep you occupied in Adelaide. The city's festival scene also ranks amongst the tops in Australia, too.

 

Couple this with its laid-back atmosphere, general cleanliness and great marine offerings accessible off-shore in areas like Glenelg which provide the chance to see/swim with dolphins and (if you’re feeling daring) even sharks – plus with easy access to the nearby wine paradise of the Barossa Valley – and there’s a definite case to be made to Adelaide as a strong contender on this list.

Adelaide also benefits from a thriving culinary scene that plays host to a surprising array of top-quality restaurants; the combined result of both talented chefs who call the city home and the incorporation of fresh local produce from the Barossa and beyond.

“City of Churches” might be its nickname, but this sells Adelaide well short – combine all of the above factors and South Australia’s capital has much more to offer than mere architecture. Those looking for a holiday destination with all the benefits of a modern urban centre that brings an open, uncrowded and natural region surrounding it will find something to surprise and satisfy them in Adelaide.
