Adelaide exists contentedly as a cultured, diverse, and attractive city with a laid-back center, leafy residential districts, and an underlying cosmopolitan atmosphere.
Take a break from the city and head to Aldinga Beach and Horseshoe Bay. South Australian Museum and Art Gallery of South Australia will appeal to museum buffs. Get out of town with these interesting Adelaide side-trips: Lyndoch (Barossa Chateau, God's Hill Wines, & more), Morgan Beach (in Cape Jervis) and Blowhole Beach (in Delamere). Dedicate the 10th (Wed) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. Next up on the itinerary: look for all kinds of wild species at Cleland Wildlife Park, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Adelaide Zoo, do a tasting at Tscharke's Place, and don't miss a visit to Adelaide Oval.

Plan my trip to Adelaide with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

In September in Adelaide, expect temperatures between 21°C during the day and 11°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 16th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
