Adelaide exists contentedly as a cultured, diverse, and attractive city with a laid-back center, leafy residential districts, and an underlying cosmopolitan atmosphere.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Granite Island and Cleland Wildlife Park. Step out of Adelaide to go to Hahndorf and see Beerenberg Farm, which is approximately 32 minutes away. Dedicate the 31st (Sun) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's much more to do: get a new perspective on nature at South Australian Museum, kick back and relax at Seacliff Beach, and take an in-depth tour of State Library of South Australia.
