Adelaide is a one-stop destination for culture-rich city life, world-class wine and unbeatable gourmet produce. From the hills, to the city, to the sea, there’s so much, so close to Adelaide
and it’s all yours to enjoy. Adelaide’s city streets are overflowing with boutique bars and world-class restaurants. Some of the best places to grab a bite can be found on Gouger Street, Rundle Street and King William Road. Leigh Street, Peel Street and Ebenezer Place are small bar hotspots, with some of the coolest places tucked away in basements, behind secret doors and down unmarked alleyways. Adelaide has been recognised as one of the Great Wine Capitals of the World – a network of nine major global cities that share a common feature: their internationally renowned wine regions. With 200 stunning cellar doors only a short drive away from the city centre and 18 world-renowned wine regions nearby, it’s no surprise why. With so many exceptional beaches, so close to the city, Adelaide’s sand and surf are virtually inescapable. From Brighton’s meandering esplanade to Glenelg’s beachside café culture, you’re never too far from the pristine coast. Jump in the car, chuck on your bathers and within the hour you’ll be sprawled on a towel in the sun at Semaphore or perfecting your freestyle at Henley.
