Other Exciting Things to See and Do in Adelaide
There's so much more to exploring regional South Australia than wine tasting in the Barossa or Clare Valleys. Did you know the rugged beauty of the Flinders Ranges comes at a price, as the residents of ghost town Ucolta found. Other towns like Kapunda flourished and enriched South Australia, before leaving a fascinating legacy at their mines.
When you can't tear yourself away from the city though, you may be surprised what history you can discover on Franklin Street, or wildlife wonders in unexpected places at Victoria Park.
Few of us can resist great food, and a romantic food experience with a friend makes it so much better. See our guide where to go to enjoy just that. The Greek on Halifax could easily be added to the list, while Zayt & Zaatar Restaurant could suit you if you're north of town. But if your best friend is your cat, there's only one option that's just right.
