Adelaide exists contentedly as a cultured, diverse, and attractive city with a laid-back center, leafy residential districts, and an underlying cosmopolitan atmosphere.
Explore Adelaide's surroundings by going to Onkaparinga River National Park (in Port Noarlunga), Hahndorf (The Cedars & Ambleside Distillers) and McLaren Vale (Fox Creek Wines & McLaren Vale III Associates). Dedicate the 29th (Tue) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's lots more to do: admire the natural beauty at Adelaide Botanic Garden, explore the world behind art at Art Gallery of South Australia, browse the eclectic array of goods at Adelaide Central Market, and get a new perspective on nature at South Australian Museum.
