About Adelaide

Adelaide is a city that offers the room to move and the space to breathe. Consistently rated one of the world’s most desirable cities to live in, Adelaide is recognised internationally for its events and festivals, fine foods and award‐winning wine.

The inner‐city highlights are within walking distance, and pristine coastlines, suburban beaches and scenic hills landscapes are just 20 minutes from central Adelaide.

Adelaide Oval is the proud centrepiece of the boutique city – a venue steeped in sporting, arts and cultural history but newly renovated and internationally recognised as a premier event host.

Today Adelaide Oval is home to AFL football, cricket, soccer matches, rugby league and sell out concerts, including internationally‐renowned artists The Rolling Stones and Adele.

The Oval is within walking distance from the city centre; a short stroll south of Adelaide Oval will take you to the spectacular Riverbank Bridge and on to the Riverbank Precinct where the sun sets on the Festival Centre and an evolving pop‐up bar scene.

Top and tail your evening at Roosters HQ at the Adelaide Casino where fellow fans and new friends will join in celebration.

From here the city is just a few steps away – with the Art Gallery of South Australia and South Australian Museum bordering the CBD to the north, while the iconic Adelaide Central Market lies in the city’s heart.

Adelaide is busily positioning itself as a major foodie destination with a swag of great new eateries and buzzing laneway bars.

Leading the way is Restaurant Orana, which was named Restaurant of the Year for 2018 by Gourmet Traveller, while executive chef Jock Zonfrillo was recognised as The Weekend Australian’s Hottest Chef of the Year.

Looking for modern American-style fare – try Sean’s Kitchen.

Or if Vietnamese-French fusion is more your speed, Madame Hanoi has an extensive all-day menu to peruse.

Other eat streets include Rundle Street for historic pubs, family‐run cafés and restaurants; Gouger Street and Chinatown for Asian flavours; Hutt St for a European feel and Leigh Street and Peel Street for the latest in modern Australian cuisine.
