I remember in my hostel near the beach that the chirping birds would come into the room they were that happy and confident. The cities left flank from south to north is miles of beautiful white sandy beaches that you can rumble out to on the old Victorian tram ... more

If Brisbane is Australia's most boring city then Adelaide has to be the sleepiest. Tucked away in a green and cozy warm corner of South Australia it's a city that has the most Australian charm of the bunch, its rustic Victoriana architecture mixed in with modern buildings in a grid system giving it a real feel of old and new Australia, wrought iron verandas and porches a plenty to tether your horse or hang your hat. It's not the sporty metropolis of Perth or cosmopolitan Sydney or the forward thinking Melbourne but the one your mum and dad would be most happy to retire in. But you always feel its happening somewhere else when you are in Adelaide. There are no ... Read the complete review

I spent five months living in Adelaide., South Australia whilst I was studying abroad in Australia. It was part of my nine months in total of staying Down Under. So many people miss out on Adelaide when they go travelling around, and believe me, they ARE missing out. Adelaide is a fantastic city. It has everything, the city skyscrapers, the shopping, the beach, the mountains. There is a large botanic gardens which is fantastic for walking and picnicking. Next to that is Adelaide Zoo which doesn't seem to be well publicised but is absolutely outstanding. According to the website, there is over 1,800 animals with around 300 different species. You can ... Read the complete review

I have been to Adelaide a few time in recent years to visit family which live just outside the city in Glenelg. Adelaide is becoming more popular with tourists and is a must visit city in southern Australia. It is only about a 15minute drive from the airport, and there are regular local buses from the airport to the city centre. Every time i visit the city i find something new to do or a new town to explore. Glenelg is one of the most visited little towns i have been too with a beautiful beach stretching for miles as well as a river full of expensive yots. Glenelg is full of bed and breakfasts, hotels and backpackers accomodation. Personally i spent a few days ... Read the complete review

Australia is a BIG country. It has BIG cities and Adelaide is no exception. This summer I had the pleasure of being invited to stay with a very distant cousin (in-law) in her home in Adelaide. Now when I say 'in' Adelaide I should explain she lives in a suburb to the north of the city - a little place called Munno Para (on the way to Gawler - for any of you bright sparks who are familiar with the area). I expected this suburb to be maybe a 15 - 20 minute drive from the centre of Adelaide so I was rather surprised to learn that it was a 45 - 50 minute train ride. This sort of distance on a train would mean that my relatives in Poole (Dorset) ... Read the complete review

Hi there music lovers, If you have a love for world music then this is the ultimate world music experience. I have been to the last 3 events as I live here, and I have to say that for 4 days every 2 years we have enjoyed the best the world has to offer when it comes to world music. The best news is that now it happens annually each and every February. We have bands and solos from all over the world for eg: Africa, Asia, Europe, South America, China and India just to name a few. The weather is perfect at that time of year in Adelaide, dust tends to be a minor problem but overall its a fantastic time and I will miss it when I move back to UK. ... Read the complete review
