Adelaide – Things to do

Adelaide Attractions

Adelaide Botanic Garden

Step into this beautiful oasis in Adelaide’s city centre and experience beautiful landscaped gardens, majestically towering trees and delicate flowers. Visit the iconic Palm House building, which dates back to 1877 and contains plants from Madagascar, as well as the Amazon Waterlily Pond. The Santos Museum of Economic Botany houses a collection dating back 130 years and provides stories and exhibits to demonstrate the importance of plant life.

Adelaide Central Market

Adelaide’s Central Market is a bustling hive of activity where you can try a delicious range of food and immerse yourself in the city’s diverse culture. It dates back over 150 years and features over 70 food stalls selling everything from fresh fish to seasonal fruits. Sample gourmet cuisine from the Paella stand and the Latvian Lunchroom or visit Lucia’s Pizza Bar and enjoy a warm slice as you wander through the market.

Glenelg Beach

Glenelg is Adelaide’s most popular beach and is well known for its white sands fringed by palm trees. It’s ideal for a day out, with a regular tram running from the city centre. Wander along the promenade behind the sands and duck into buzzing restaurants and cafés where you can choose from fresh seafood and grilled meats. Make sure you stay until the evening for the magnificent sunsets.
