Voted Australia’s most liveable city, Adelaide is also one of its easiest to reach, with direct flights from most major Asian airports and all Australian capital cities. Once you arrive, the city is just as easy to get to know. Wide streets, welcoming town squares and leafy parklands beckon you to explore.
For outdoor-types, the Adelaide Hills and several beautiful beaches are just 20 minutes outside the city. Hop on the tram and enjoy a swim at Glenelg Beach, experience the breathtaking beauty of Flinders Ranges National Park or behold the rugged bushland, wildlife and pristine beaches of Kangaroo Island. Visiting with the family? Take the kids to meet Wang Wang and Funi, the giant pandas at the Adelaide Zoo. Wine drinkers especially will find plenty to love about the Wine Capital of Australia. The Barossa Valley and the Southern Vales feature over 200 boutique vineyards and wineries, all less than an hour’s drive from the city.
Within the city limits, many cosmopolitan pursuits await. Fabulous restaurants and vibrant nightlife, historical attractions, art galleries and museums. Take in a cricket match at the Adelaide Oval. Browse the exhibits at the Art Gallery of South Australia, try your luck at the SkyCity Adelaide Casino, or spend the afternoon wandering amidst the hushed tranquillity of the Botanic Gardens. If you’re visiting in March, be sure to grab a ticket for the Clipsal 500, when V8 Supercars vie for high-octane supremacy on the streets of Adelaide.
No matter what brings you town, let Hotel Grand Chancellor Adelaide on Currie be your gateway to everything South Australia has to offer.
