Adelaide exists contentedly as a cultured, diverse, and attractive city with a laid-back center, leafy residential districts, and an underlying cosmopolitan atmosphere.
On the 20th (Sun), don't miss a visit to Southern Flinders Ranges Experience with Lunch. On the 21st (Mon), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: admire all the interesting features of The Cedars, then get engrossed in the history at Hans Heysen Art Studio, and then indulge your senses at some of the top wineries in the area.

Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Adelaide fast, fun, and easy.

Auckland, New Zealand to Adelaide is an approximately 8-hour flight. You'll gain 2 hours traveling from Auckland to Adelaide due to the time zone difference. When traveling from Auckland in October, plan for somewhat warmer days and slightly colder nights in Adelaide: temperatures range from 26°C by day to 13°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 22nd (Tue) early enough to drive to Tanunda.
