Founded in 1836, Australia's 5th largest city sprawls for 870 square kilometers, from the foothills of the picturesque low-lying Mount Lofty Ranges all the way to the white sands and cerulean waves of the Gulf of St Vincent. Adelaide is the capital city of South Australia, and boasts the potential benefits of both a vibrant city break and a languid beach holiday.
Though as a city Adelaide is relatively young, it has developed a rich culture of it's own stemming from the roots of its British founders - the original inhabitants of the area, the Kaurna people - and the dedication of the Adelaideans to religious freedom and political progressivism. This prompted Adelaide's nickname 'The City of Churches'.
Though the city is itself a glittering hub of chic drinking and dining, the surrounding area offers up a wealth of unmissable experiences. Hiking and biking trails in the rolling hills and valleys of nearby Barossa are a must-do for the more actively inclined guests, followed by a glass or three of Barossa's famous home-grown red wine.
Australia's autumn lies between March and May, and during these months Adelaide and Barossa play host to many vibrant music, food and wine festivals. Temperatures are still averaging in the twenties at the time of year, making this the ideal season for a visit to Adelaide.
Guests would struggle to find a place so full of natural attractions as Adelaide and it's surrounding areas. Aside from the long, picturesque beaches and the hiking trails through the breath-taking Barossa valley, guests will always find an activity to suit them.
Embark on a dolphin-spotting kayaking trip along the Port River, or take a day trip to nearby Kangaroo Island and admire the indigenous wildlife. Sports-lovers can take a guided tour around the Adelaide Oval Stadium, and budding wine connoisseurs will never be short of wine-tasting opportunities in Adelaide and Barossa.
In the very heart of the city guests will find Adelaide's Central Market, a treasure-trove of home grown local produce from across the region, from jewel-bright mounds of tropical fruits to still shoals of freshly caught fish.
Alternatively, a visit to Adelaide's Laneway - where old warehouses have been transformed into chic, modern restaurants and tapas bars - will provide a range of culinary experiences to tickle anyone's taste buds. Match any meal with high-quality, locally produced wine to perfectly complement your dish.
Adelaide's stylish reputation stretches flawlessly into the evening, when a range of sleek cocktail bars become the place to be. Visit Lotus Lounge to unwind in the outdoor Tiki hut with a Mai Tai, or put on your dancing shoes and head to Electric Circus for a high-energy night in this hidden basement club.
