Our city streets are overflowing with boutique bars and world-class restaurants. Some of the best places to grab a bite can be found on Gouger Street, Rundle Street and King William Road. Leigh Street, Peel Street and Ebenezer Place are small bar hotspots, with some of our coolest places tucked away in basements, behind secret doors and down unmarked alleyways.
Adelaide has been recognised as one of the Great Wine Capitals of the World – a network of nine major global cities that share a common feature: their internationally renowned wine regions. With 200 stunning cellar doors only a short drive from the CBD and 18 world-renowned wine regions nearby, it’s no surprise why.
The Art Gallery of South Australian has over 38,000 pieces in its collection. Fossick through the rare fossils at the South Australian Museum and marvel at the six-metre long snake and giant leaf-eating kangaroo. Tandanya National Aboriginal Cultural Institute is a brilliant Aboriginal art space and is Australia’s oldest Aboriginal-owned and managed multi-arts centre. In the city’s West End, the Jam Factory Contemporary Craft and Design studio is a real centre of excellence for the arts.
South Australia is Australia’s best festival state, an accolade we have won two years in a row.
