Hire a car

Adelaide is so small that some people consider it to be almost like a town rather than a city. So, you won't need a car to walk around the CBD.

But, trust me on this one - If you want to get the most out of what the entire state has to offer, then you'll want to go beyond just the city streets. South Australia has so much to explore in terms of natural & rural scenery, and most destinations cannot be reached by public transport.


Don't spend big bucks

You don't need to throw your money around to get the best of Adelaide and South Australia. There are hundreds of free ways to fill up your holiday. Check out this page to see free events and activities.

On average, our food and drink eateries are also some of the cheapest in the country. If you're paying the same amount that you're paying in a city like Sydney, then you might want to look elsewhere as they could be ripping you off.

Bring your walking shoes

South Australia has some unbelievable scenery and vast landscapes. It's unlike any other state. To get the most out of areas like the Flinders Ranges, Morialta Conservation Park, Belair National Park, and more, you'll need to do a little bit of walking and wandering.


Don't question your decision to travel to SA

Many people, from interstate and overseas, question whether South Australia is a worthy state to visit. I can assure you that it definitely is. Check out this list of 100 Reasons Why SA is the Best State if you're lacking inspiration to visit Adelaide.

South Australia is the hidden gem of Australia. It may not be quite as popular as the East Coast (Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney), but that is a part of what makes it so charming. Adelaide has been built to cater for tourists, but not to the point where the natural beauty has been destroyed.

All S.Austs. should be proud of their state and compliment it as you have done.Young people can be heard saying it is dull..would rather live in Melbourne etc.People overseas are generally not aware of Adelaide...but as you rightly say,there are some really good places to visit and close to the city as well.Tourism is apparently on the increase ..nice to see so many more visitors coming our way.

If you go on the bikeway, unfortunately a lot of cyclists do not ring their bells to alert people they are coming. Some of the bikeways go downhill and are very narrow.
Stay safe everybody
