Adelaide Tourist Attractions & Activities

It won’t come as a surprise to anyone who lives there but Adelaide is on the rise. The South Australian capital has always had spectacular food and wine an internationally renowned stadium and tons of top-notch museums

but now the rest of the world is starting to notice. Trendy cafes and cocktails bars are popping up all over. Yes Adelaide is moving far beyond its “City of Churches” nickname but that doesn’t mean it’s forgotten its past. A stroll through historic Port Adelaide or North Terrace will remind you of the classic elegance and charm of this big city with a small-town atmosphere. Whether you’re a local already familiar with all the hidden laneways or a visitor wondering what to do in Adelaide put your plans in the expert hands of Expedia.com.au. You’ll love what you find.

Fun Things to Do in Adelaide

For those who want to start where it all began make your way to the city’s heart: Victoria Square. Relax on the lawn and enjoy the gardens and fountains and you’ll feel like a local in no time. A stroll up King William Street will bring you through the never-ending shops of the pedestrianised Rundle Mall past the bright façade of the beautiful Beehive Corner building and on to the historic Parliament House. The nearby Trinity Church is the oldest in the city and if you continue north you’ll find the impressive neo-Gothic St. Peter’s Cathedral. This city is supremely walkable but the easiest way to see all of these top Adelaide attractions is on a sightseeing tour.

If you’ve got an interest in cricket or Australian rules football you’re in the right place. Catch a game or take a tour of the legendary Adelaide Oval hearing one-of-a-kind stories of its players and history. Prefer to “wine” the day away? McLaren Vale wine region famous for its dry reds is just south of the city. Stop off in the beach neighbourhood of Glenelg to soak up some rays or enjoy outdoor dining in Moseley Square. And for an outdoor adventure unlike any other take a day trip to Kangaroo Island where you can befriend not only its namesake marsupials but wallabies echidnas and fur seals.

Don’t wait another minute to start exploring Adelaide. This up-and-coming city in the south has it all—and Expedia.com.au has all the best deals and offers on activities here. Start with the fun stuff then check out our hotels and airfares too. We’ve got it all right here.
