Adelaide exists contentedly as a cultured, diverse, and attractive city with a laid-back center, leafy residential districts, and an underlying cosmopolitan atmosphere.
Let the collections at Glenelg Beach and Art Gallery of South Australia capture your imagination. Get some cultural insight at South Australian Museum and Ashton Hills Vineyard. Venture out of the city with trips to The Cedars (in Hahndorf) and Aldinga Beach (in Aldinga Beach). Dedicate the 22nd (Sun) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. And it doesn't end there: enjoy the sand and surf at Henley Beach, take a stroll through Rundle Mall, and identify plant and animal life at Cleland Wildlife Park.
