Adelaide exists contentedly as a cultured, diverse, and attractive city with a laid-back center, leafy residential districts, and an underlying cosmopolitan atmosphere.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Old Oval Estate and Aldinga Beach. Take a break from the city and head to Henley Beach and Glenelg Beach. When in Adelaide, make a side trip to see Wirra Wirra Vineyards in McLaren Vale, approximately 50 minutes away. There's much more to do: take an in-depth tour of National Railway Museum Port Adelaide, take a stroll through North Terrace, contemplate the long history of Carrick Hill, and appreciate the history behind The Rundle Mall Pigs.
