Adelaide – South Australia

Welcome to part three of Cruising Australia as I discuss the amazing port of Adelaide

I spent 3 months living in a suburb of Adelaide – Mitcham, I hung out with locals and got to experience the day to day local life and fell in love with Adelaide.

Gateway to the ‘outback’ Adelaide has lots to offer, they say it’s the most liveable city in Australia. Surrounded by parklands, historic buildings. It’s so easy to get around with hills and beaches reachable within 20 minutes.

Transport is second to none in the city – free buses and trams operate around the city, which gives easy access to all the major tourist attractions.  ade bikes

You can also take advantage of the free daytime bike hire (available from Bicycle SA, Franklin Street.)

Head to the elegant North Terrace where you can visit the Art Gallery of South Australia and museum. From here you visit the stunning botanic gardens.

Shop at Adelaide’s East End – Rundle Street. Home to Rundle Mall and where most of the major shops are. With a choice of over 500 outlets including eateries.

Glenelg Tram

If you’re looking for some seaside charm take the 1920’s vintage tram (free) to Glenelg. It’s a great way to see the historic houses on the way.

It’s renowned for a great array of wineries, the nearest being Adelaide Hills. Home to over 50 cellar doors.

Kangaroo Island if definitely worth a visit, fly or take the ferry and experience the local wildlife – a true nature lovers dream!

Day trips available from Adelaide include:

Barossa Valley wine experience – taking in Cedars and Adelaide Hills

Murray River cruise – Australia’s biggest river
