Adelaide exists contentedly as a cultured, diverse, and attractive city with a laid-back center, leafy residential districts, and an underlying cosmopolitan atmosphere.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Horseshoe Bay and National Motor Museum. Visit Aldinga Beach and Glenelg Beach for some beach relaxation. There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Carrick Hill, get a sense of history and politics at Torrens Building, hike along River Torrens Linear Park Trail, and cross one thing off your bucket list with a skydiving experience.

For maps, reviews, photos, and other tourist information, refer to the Adelaide travel route app .
