I absolutely love Adelaide. It’s one of my favourite cities in Australia. It’s foodie heaven with fabulous coffee shops and the Central Markets are a must do. Incredible, fresh produce and such variety. Reminds me of the markets in Europe. It’s not called “Radelaide “ for nothing, it’s very arty and quirky. Love Rundle Mall. Some beautiful architecture to be seen from brick houses, to gorgeous churches and lovely arcades in the city. Walking along The Torrens is very relaxing . A trip to Hahndorf and Stirling in the hills is also very worthwhile. For me, Adelaide is WAY better for coffee and culture than Melbourne.
The ideally planned city of Adelaide is laid out in a grid design and surrounded by green space. The north of the city has pretty boulevards of jacaranda trees, which become a mass of purple flowers in springtime. Chinatown is a cheap place to eat in the city, and Rundle Mall the classic place to shop. There’s plenty to do in Adelaide, given its outstanding museums, historic gaol, zoo, botanical gardens and beach suburb Glenelg.

A clean, friendly, attractive and manageable city with plenty of activities for everyone! We were here at the beginning of the Christmas season in mid-November, when Adelaide is the scene of the Credit Union Christmas Pageant (Australia's largest and most elaborate Christmas parade) and the start of a holiday festival that lasts through early January. The city of Adelaide is also a good base for day trips around the area.
