About Adelaide, Guide and Top Tourist Attractions
(Adelaide, South Australia - SA, Australia)

Adelaide is the capital of South Australia, and is considered to be one of the most historic cities in Australia. Settlers founded it in 1836, and it has since retained its natural beauty despite modern advancements. Many locals say that despite its size, Adelaide feels like a small town. It is largely divided by the Torrens River, and is located on the coastal plain flanked by the Adelaide Hills and the Gulf of St. Vincent.

What to do in Adelaide

Tourists will never run out of things to do in Adelaide. The Mediterranean-style climate is perfect for outdoor activities, shopping, restaurant hopping, or just walking around.

After a day of shopping in Adelaide's Rundle Mall, tourists can end the day in exceptionally clean and sandy beaches near the central Adelaide centre. A short trek to Glenelg leads to Maslin Beach, Aldinga Beach and Moana Beach. These so-called 'golden beaches' are great for relaxing, sunbathing,, swimming, and snorkeling. Most of these beaches have strong waves, so tourists can surf as well.

Tourists can also participate in numerous activities such as Adelaide whale watching tours, watch events and concerts in the Adelaide Entertainment Centre, bet in the SkyCity Adelaide Casino, walk around the Adelaide Zoological Gardens or the Cleland Wildlife Park, ride the carousels in the Magic Mountain, or simply unwind in the Adelaide Botanic Gardens.

Tourist Attractions

There are many tourist information kiosks around Adelaide city centre and at the Adelaide Airport. Tourists can have access to useful information, such as maps to Adelaide's many tourist attractions, guide to Adelaide restaurants, guide to trains, etc.

There are many tourist spots in Adelaide, especially for tourists who enjoy the charm of old architecture. The Adelaide Town Hall is one of them. Built in the 1860s, it is one of the few edifices that have retained its Renaissance-style architecture. The Parliament House also attracts many tourists. It features a very well-kept architecture and a marble exterior.
