Adelaide Central Market
The Adelaide Central Market has been operating for 140 years, and with over 80 stalls under one roof, it is a hub of activity with traders, artisans and shoppers who share a passion for food. The range of fresh food is extensive – fruit & vegetables, meat & poultry, seafood, gourmet cheeses, bread, cakes and more. You will want to return time and again for the delicious aromas, the vivid colours and atmosphere of an international melting pot of cultures.
National Wine Centre
Looking over the Adelaide Botanic Gardens, the National Wine Centre is an architectural treat, but what it holds inside is the real attraction. Here you can discover winemaking from the ground up, take an interactive discovery tour which showcases the complete wine experience, and finish at the Concourse Cafe with wines to taste or purchase while enjoying a meal from their superb a la carte menu.
North Terrace is Adelaide’s cultural boulevard. It contains many excellent examples of early Australian architecture which include the Art Gallery of South Australia, the South Australian Museum, the University of South Australia, and Adelaide’s oldest church, the Anglican Holy Trinity Church.
One of the best ways to see Adelaide is to travel the Linear Park Trail. Following the Torrens River, with bitumen trails winding through parklands, you can cycle or walk from the base of the Adelaide Hills in the west to Henley Beach in the east. Take a picnic lunch or stop along the way at one of the many cafes or pubs adjacent to the route.
Get up close and personal with the animals at Adelaide Zoo. Adelaide Zoo offers a variety of behind the scenes tours – experience a unique opportunity to meet the pandas, assist in feeding the orangutans, or spend a few hours with the Children’s Zoo keeper – a fantastic way for kids to experience a range of animals in an encounter they will treasure for a lifetime!
