All about Adelaide

When to visit

Adelaide’s flagship event is The Adelaide Fringe, which helps summer wind down with four weeks of festivities from mid-February through March. The fun continues through fall, with the Adelaide Festival and WOMADelaide in March and Tasting Australia in early May all pulling in big crowds. March, April and May are also the ideal time for wine tasting amid the vineyards as the grape harvest gives way to colorful fall foliage and sunshine through the Adelaide Hills.

Getting around

Downtown Adelaide is easily explored on foot, but you can also hop on the free CityConnector buses (99A and 99C), which loop around the central attractions. Taxis can be pricey, so opt for public transport if you need to head further afield—a metroCARD Visitor Pass offers unlimited travel on the city’s trains, trams, and buses. Renting a car or joining a tour is the most convenient option for visiting the vineyards of Barossa and McLaren Vale.

Traveler tips

By Adelaide Botanic Gardens, the National Wine Centre is where you can sip and savor more than 120 Australian wines—it’s the next best thing for wine lovers who can’t make it out to the vineyards. Foodies looking to escape the crowds of the Central Market will find an eclectic range of world cuisines on offer along Gouger and Rundle streets.
