Where is Adelaide?

Welcome to Adelaide

Adelaide is the capital of South Australia, and has been listed as one of the world’s most liveable cities. It is a charming and charismatic city and is home to world famous Australian wineries, festivals, parklands, art galleries and museums. Be sure you sample some of the 700 plus restaurants, cafes and pubs where you'll experience some of the best local produce.

How to get around Adelaide and surround areas

There's just so much to explore in Adelaide and the country regions. Unless you've booked all inclusive tours, consider hiring a car to explore the many fabulous towns and locations that are just outside of Adelaide. You may also need to book flights to get to more distant places such as Port Lincoln.
