Adelaide is a city full of beautiful juxtapositions. Walk down the road and and you’ll see old ethereal churches and historic buildings next to modern day architecture in the form of universities and corporate buildings. With a night life as bustling as Adelaide’s CBD, you will be surprised that the relaxing country side is just a 30 minute drive away! Which ever side of Adelaide you may want to experience, a weekend away will surely not disappoint! Here are my recommendations based on my most favourite Adelaide spots:

Hotel: Check in at the iconic Intercontinental Hotel in Adelaide. Located on the River Torrens, it connects guests to all special attractions and offers some of the best window views of the city. Enjoy a buffet breakfast at the Riverside or try some divine Japanese delicacies at the Shiki restaurant. Adelaide Oval is a 5 minute walk over the beautiful River Bank Bridge and the cultural precinct on North Terrace is a short walk from the door step!

Day 1

Art gallery
Take a stroll down the sophisticated and cultured street of North terrace viewing the historic buildings on your way to the Art gallery which was founded in 1881. The large stone pillars guarding the entrance to the museum take you back to olden day Europe. Take a step inside and explore Australian, Aboriginal and Torres Strate Islander, Asian and European art. Need some help exploring the vast art forms? There are free guided tours daily from 11am to 2pm!

Mount Lofty Summit
Just 20 minutes from the CBD, take a drive up to the Mount Lofty Summit. 710 meters above sea level, here you can enjoy a panoramic view of Adelaide. Sit outside the café and enjoy a coffee while taking in the breathtaking view, open blue skies and fresh mountain air! In the mood for a hike? Take a stroll through native bushland to Cleland Wildlife park.

Another 10 minute drive from Mount Lofty and you enter Australia’s oldest surviving German settlement, the picturesque German village, Hahndorf. Seasoned with the best of German and Australian influences, this village offers the most authentic food, fashion and architecture. Spend some time exploring the German shops and museums before having a traditional meal at one of the German cafés. Their huge portions will surprise you!

In the mood for wine? Hahndorf is home to a plethora of beautiful wineries and vineyards. Book yourself a place at the Hahndorf Hill Winery for a tasting and some gourmet platters!

Day 2

Adelaide Oval
The sight of the Adelaide Oval will get the heart racing of any cricket fan. Walk in side to the wide iconic ground, enclosed by over 53,000 seats. Opposite the entrance, you will see the heritage scoreboard still in use, surrounded by a re-developed and modern oval. If you would like a more detailed tour, you can book one from $19. The tour lasts approximately one and a half hours, and you will be guided through different paths in the Oval, while hearing some unique stories from the guide!

A museum of Sir Donald Bradman is also here. The Bradman collection follows his journey through club and international cricket, and how he became one of the most admired cricketers we have today.

Tight on the budget? Just go in and take a stroll around the Oval, it’s free!

Rundle Mall

Don’t worry shopaholics, we have not forgotten you. Rundle street is one of the most famous shopping strips in Adelaide. With over 1000 retail outlets, get ready to shop till you drop! Rundle street is also home to the famous Mall’s Balls, which has become an iconic spot for a tourist photo in Adelaide.

Time to relax and enjoy an evening by the beach. When you visit Glenelg, you’ll be welcomed by a bustling suburb, with buckets of soul. Here you will see heritage hotels, small cafes, a busy shopping street and a beautiful, big sandy beach. Come sunset, take a walk down the pier and see the light reflect of the water. The most perfect place for a romantic evening, some self – reflecting and experiencing some fun café culture.

Pro tip: Rent a car. This is by far the easiest, cheapest and most convenient way to travel around Adelaide! Saying that, I would highly recommend traveling by the local tram line at least once to get the best of the local experience!
