Adelaide & Area Trip Planner
Welcome to Adelaide & Area!
Adelaide, the refined capital of South Australia, welcomes its visitors graciously, incorporating a European city plan including numerous breezy squares with a hospitable local population. Settled by free British immigrants in 1836, the city has a reputation for being uncommonly liberal and a proper patron of the arts. Every other year, the popular Adelaide Fringe Festival exhibits original music, live theatre and experimental cinema from international artists, and the city's elaborate Festival Centre provides a venue for WOMADelaide and the Cabaret Festival.
Often called the City of Churches, the Holy Trinity Anglican Church is state's oldest, and is found on the historic North Terrace boulevard along with the Adelaide Botanical Gardens and Parliament House. The South Australia Museum preserves artifacts from the state's unique natural history, and the Migration Museum provides insight into the difficult lives of Australia's brave first settlers. Rundle Street provides the best in al fresco dining, and is lined with bohemian shops and funky bars. Nearby wilderness parks, found in the Adelaide Hills, provide safe sanctuary for South Australia's endangered animals.
