Adelaide exists contentedly as a cultured, diverse, and attractive city with a laid-back center, leafy residential districts, and an underlying cosmopolitan atmosphere.
Visiting Cleland Wildlife Park and River Torrens Linear Park Trail will get you outdoors. Visit Adelaide Oval and Langmeil Winery for their historical value. Venture out of the city with trips to The Cedars (in Hahndorf), National Motor Museum (in Birdwood) and Gorge Wildlife Park (in Cudlee Creek). Dedicate the 20th (Fri) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's lots more to do: explore the world behind art at Art Gallery of South Australia, take an in-depth tour of State Library of South Australia, get a new perspective on nature at South Australian Museum, and contemplate the long history of Carrick Hill.

To see where to stay and tourist information, you can read our Adelaide itinerary maker tool .

The Route module shows you all the different ways you can get to Adelaide. Expect a daytime high around 21°C in September, and nighttime lows around 11°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 25th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel to Kangaroo Island.
