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 Blowhole Beach and Aldinga Beach. Visit Horseshoe Bay and Henley Beach for some beach relaxation. Change things up with these side-trips from Adelaide: Hallett Cove Conservation Park (in Hallett Cove), McLaren Vale (Wirra Wirra Vineyards & Shingleback Wine Cellar Door) and Maslin Beach (in Maslin Beach). There's much more to do: identify plant and animal life at Gorge Wildlife Park, stroll through Boomer Beach, trek along River Torrens Linear Park Trail, and enjoy the sand and surf at Waitpinga Beach.

To find photos, traveler tips, where to stay, and tourist information, refer to the Adelaide day trip planning site .

Expect a daytime high around 30°C in December, and nighttime lows around 17°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 11th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
