Adelaide exists contentedly as a cultured, diverse, and attractive city with a laid-back center, leafy residential districts, and an underlying cosmopolitan atmosphere.
Step out of the city life by going to Adelaide Zoo and Cleland Wildlife Park. Do some cultural sightseeing at Kalleske Wines and Adelaide Oval. Explore Adelaide's surroundings by going to Murray Street Vineyards (in Greenock), The Cedars (in Hahndorf) and Langmeil Winery (in Tanunda). Dedicate the 23rd (Wed) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. Next up on the itinerary: learn more about the world around you at South Australian Museum, admire the masterpieces at Flinders University Art Museum & City Gallery, stroll through Seacliff Beach, and take a stroll through Rundle Mall.

Plan a trip to Adelaide easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.
