ADELAIDE, AUSTRALIA

We spent a few days in Adelaide, Australia in January 2004 and really enjoyed it. It had the feel of being a very live-able city rather than just somewhere to recommend as a holiday destination.

A nice way to spend a day in Adelaide is getting the tram from the city to the beachside suburb of Glenelg where there is a nice beach and lots of bars, restaurants and shops. We had a nice lunch at Cafe Miramare, close to the tram stop, with a really tasty pizza and salad.

The Barossa Valley wine area around Adelaide is a lovely area to visit. We just hired a car and did our own thing, but there are organised tours if you prefer. It's easy to turn up at one of the vineyards and do some wine tasting and a tour. If you have time, spend a night or two in one of the hotels or guest houses in this lovely area. Find more information here.

Adelaide Central Market is well worth a visit with more than 80 stalls, shops and cafes selling high quality fruit, vegetables, teas, coffees, bread, cheese, flowers, meat, and much more. Visit their website for more information.

A walk through the Adelaide Botanic Gardens, on the edge of the city, is a nice way to pass some time. Click here for more information.
