Adelaide is a charming city surrounded by beautiful parklands. It is easy to get to and travel around, so there is little wonder it is known as the 20 minute city. Adelaide has something for everyone, from a shopping experience on Rundle Mall to a fabulous dining experience in one of the many restaurants, cafes and pubs on offer. Stroll along the North Terrace boulevard and visit the many art galleries and museums. You can also visit The Adelaide Zoo, home to Australia’s only Giant Pandas, Wang Wang and Funi.
The Adelaide Hills and metropolitan beaches are just 20 minutes drive from the CBD and also offer great cafés and restaurants. Adelaide is a wonderful city to explore, however, extend your trip in South Australia and visit our country regions by car or by plane. South Australia is also known for its beautiful wine regions and The Barossa, Clare Valley, The Adelaide Hills and McLaren Vale are all a short drive from Adelaide and offer beautiful scenery and wonderful experiences.
