Adelaide exists contentedly as a cultured, diverse, and attractive city with a laid-back center, leafy residential districts, and an underlying cosmopolitan atmosphere.
Go for a jaunt from Adelaide to Hahndorf to see The Cedars about 30 minutes away. Dedicate the 25th (Thu) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's lots more to do: steep yourself in history at Adelaide Oval, take an in-depth tour of State Library of South Australia, make a trip to Rundle Mall, and stroll through Adelaide Zoo.

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

Manchester, UK to Adelaide is an approximately 25-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and bus. The time zone difference moving from Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) to Australian Central Standard Time (South Australia) (ACST) is 9 hours. Traveling from Manchester in July, expect Adelaide to be little chillier, temps between 17°C and 8°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 27th (Sat) to allow time to travel to Mount Gambier.
