There's lots more to do: learn about winemaking at Seppeltsfield, get a new perspective on nature at South Australian Museum, steep yourself in history at Adelaide Oval, and explore the world behind art at Art Gallery of South Australia.

For where to stay, reviews, other places to visit, and other tourist information, refer to the Adelaide online driving holiday planner .
