Adelaide Airport is located fewer than 10 kilometres from Adelaide’s CBD and is one of the busiest airports in Australia. It serves more than seven million passengers annually through the nearly one hundred daily flights to Adelaide that travel into the airport every day, moving travellers from across the country and around the world. Visitors to Adelaide can enjoy the benefits of rental cars, taxis, shuttle buses, or public transport buses to take them into the city, where they can then begin their visits in earnest.
The city is known as the most liveable city in Australia, thanks in part to its moderate weather, carefully designed layout, and diverse culture. Located scenically between Gulf St Vincent and the Mount Lofty Ranges, Adelaide was originally planned as South Australia’s capital and was laid out in a grid pattern with spacious public areas and plentiful parklands. It was founded by those in search of religious freedom and continues to be known for its progressive thinking and dedication to personal liberty.
Adelaide is also a green city with carbon neutral races and zero-waste events where earthworms are used to help compost waste into plant food. The city provides bicycles to residents and visitors free for their use around the city, and solar-powered buses transport visitors across Adelaide.
You will have plenty of options for entertainment and activities during your visit here. The wine capital of Australia, Adelaide has cultural, art, and music festivals and a multitude of dining options that include pubs, al fresco cafes, coffee houses, and finer restaurants. Family friendly activity options include the botanical gardens and zoos or Kangaroo Island.
All of Australia’s major cities are known for their lively shopping districts, but Adelaide has put its own unique spin on its shopping district, with farmers’ markets filled with fresh in-season, non-GMO fruits and vegetables that you can purchase directly from the growers and kid-friendly interactive stalls. Vintage fashions, collectibles, antiques, and more are all available in Adelaide’s markets.
