Best time to go to Adelaide
The end of winter and beginning of autumn make up the peak season in Adelaide. From February to March, tourists flock to this lovely location to bask in the warmth. They are also drawn out by the many events in the area, such as the Adelaide Festival of Arts and Womadelaide.
The shoulder season begins in September and finishes up some time in November. Some of the more active tourists like to visit the area during this time, as there are many sporting events that take place. However, as this season can also be quite humid, tourists thin out making this a great time to find inexpensive flights to the area.
June through August is a great time to take part in some of the many winter sports activities in the area. If, however, you prefer to stay out of the cool weather you can also enjoy one of the casinos, the Art Gallery of South Australia, or Her Majesty's Theatre in the west end. As most tourists prefer to avoid the rain of this season, this is the best time to find reasonably-priced flights.
