Adelaide exists contentedly as a cultured, diverse, and attractive city with a laid-back center, leafy residential districts, and an underlying cosmopolitan atmosphere.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Horseshoe Bay and Torbreck Wines. Chateau Dorrien and Elderton Wines are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Adelaide: Semaphore Beach (in Semaphore) and Boomer Beach (in Port Elliot). Spend the 9th (Mon) exploring nature at Belair National Park.

Plan my Adelaide trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Toronto, Canada to Adelaide is an approximately 28-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and bus. You'll lose 14 hours traveling from Toronto to Adelaide due to the time zone difference. Plan for much hotter temperatures traveling from Toronto in March, with highs in Adelaide at 30°C and lows at 18°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 11th (Wed) so you can travel to Kangaroo Island.
