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 enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Carrickalinga Beach and Seacliff Beach. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like South Australian Museum and Adelaide Oval. Change things up with these side-trips from Adelaide: Horseshoe Bay (in Port Elliot), Port Noarlunga Reef (in Port Noarlunga) and Gorge Wildlife Park (in Cudlee Creek). There's lots more to do: identify plant and animal life at Cleland Wildlife Park, let little ones run wild at Oaklands Wetland, stroll through Glenelg Beach, and explore the world behind art at Flinders University Art Museum & City Gallery.
