Get amongst Mad March
Call me biased but I really don't think there is a better time in Adelaide than autumn. After incredible warmth over summer there is some relief as the chill sets in and the air begins to crisp while the trees begin to colour varying shades of orange. The weather and natural beauty however, is only one of many reasons to visit Adelaide at this time of year.

Autumn leaves

During this autumn "Mad March" kicks off with Adelaide's biggest festival season. The famous Fringe Festival kicks off in Late February and continues well into March. With shows happening regularly throughout March, there really is something for everyone.

Described as "Australia's biggest culture event " by The New York Times, Adelaide Festival is another event not to miss! Running from March 3 19 it celebrates Adelaide Writers Week, showcasing a range of different artists and internationally acclaimed productions.

While you are in party mode why not head along to WOMADelaide, which is celebrating 25 years of World Of Music, Arts and Dance. Be sure to grab your tickets for one or all 4 days of this amazing festival from 10-13th March.

Prefer action-packed sport to arts? Clipsal 500 Adelaide may be the thing for you. Running from the 2nd - 5th of March, Clipsal 500 is Australia's largest domestic motor sport event. This is one for real motorsport fans.

Maybe you'd prefer to get away from the crowds and indulge in day trip out. With 4 huge wine regions (Clare Valley, The Adelaide Hills, McLaren Vale and Barossa Valley) surrounding the city centre you really can't go wrong. Or for something different, head up to the oldest surviving German settlement, Hahndorf, for a day of strolling along tree-lined streets, indulging in foodie delights such as traditional fudge and jams, or enjoying a German pretzel or hotdog alongside a stein of Bavarian beer.


Whatever you decide to do you won't be disappointed. It truly is a beautiful time of year and a beautiful city.
