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 Vine Art Studio, Gallery & Therapeutic Massage and Rockford Winery. Museum-lovers will appreciate National Motor Museum and South Australian Maritime Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Adelaide: Ballycroft Vineyard and Cellars (in Greenock), St George's Anglican Church (in Gawler) and Chateau Tanunda (in Tanunda). There's still lots to do: get to know the fascinating history of North Terrace, steep yourself in history at Carrick Hill, take an in-depth tour of National Railway Museum Port Adelaide, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Peter's Cathedral.
