Sophisticated Adelaide, the capital city of South Australia, is pretty proud of the fact that its founding had nothing to do with establishing a penal colony.
Despite the fact that its forefathers and foremothers were of a more pious sort, you can still have plenty of fun in this city. Book Adelaide accommodation to make the most of great beaches, good eats and plenty of nightlife—you’ll wonder why you waited so long to visit!
Adelaide is pretty much the top thing happening in rural South Australia, which means you have a lot of options as you begin to chart your holiday. You might want to steer your Adelaide car rental to North Terrace, where you can snap pics of the Parliament House, hit some of the city’s best museums, and think deep thoughts at the art gallery.
If you’re purposefully trying to avoid deep thoughts on your holiday, visit the Adelaide Casino instead. The only thing you have to think about here is whether to want to put it all on red or black.
You’ll never work on your tan if you spend all your time indoors. Book your car hire in Adelaide and head on over to Henley Beach, where you can tuck your toes in hot white sand and let the seagulls serenade you. When your grumbling belly joins in, cruise to Henley Square and treat yourself to a refreshing pint at a local pub or fresh seafood at a trendy restaurant.
You don’t have to drive your Adelaide car hire far to leave the bustling city behind. Just 11km away, swap human interaction for a commune with nature at Cleland Conservation Park. Frolic among the kangaroos and wallabies and maybe even hold a koala (that’s a definite bucket list bingo)!
If you’re ready for a break, go wild with Wotif. We’ll save you plenty of money on Adelaide holiday packages, so the next round at the pub is on you!
