Destination Guide - Adelaide
Despite being a major Australian city, Adelaide has maintained an enviable tranquillity – it’s fondly known as the City of Churches and the calm that its architecture induces is palpable. The Torrens River is a great spot to relax and enjoy the sun and the inner city suburbs have a charming village appeal. The inner city beaches such as Glenelg could be mistaken for remote costal areas so it’s possible to enjoy a clean and quiet beach while having the benefit of being no more than 20 minutes from the great restaurants and vibrant nightlife that Adelaide has to offer. And some of Australia’s best wineries are right at its doorstep…
Adelaide’s summers (December to February) can be extremely hot – it’s not unusual for it to reach 40°C and higher. Winters (June to August) can be cold and grey but not temperatures are freezing, getting down to approximately 15°C. Autumn and spring are the best times to visit and enjoy moderate conditions.

The trains and buses offer an efficient way to travel. There is also a tram that travels from the city centre to Glenelg.
