Lots of good restaurants, cafes and plenty of pubs, bars, pubs, or as they are called here, hotels line the streets of Adelaide. The diversity of cuisine is due to the growing multiculturalism Adelaide. Here you will not find many Asian, Mediterranean, and Ethiopian restaurants, but do not forget the local Aussie pub grub, especially can not miss tasting kangaroo fillet. Norwood and North Adelaide, check drinks near the CBD, also good places for a meal or to wander. They are full of original architecture and an even more relaxed feel than the city center.
Although Adelaide is often referred to as the city of churches, it has more in the way of architecture. While strolling through the city center, make sure not to miss the General Post Office and Town Hall near Victoria Square, opposite each other. Look to the Central Market. On the other end of town, on North Terrace, a tour of Ayers House, complete with furniture, the cost of $ 8AUD worth. I often think it would be a good idea to start an architectural tour.
As you continue along the North Terrace, there are quite a few museums worth investigating, most of which have free admission. The South Australian Museum and Art Gallery of South Australia are right next to each other and can be seen both in an hour or two. Tandanya, the National Aboriginal Cultural Institute, is past is used to Flinders Street and the Old Adelaide Gaol, in the 1980s, is now open for tours, just outside the city in Thebarton.
A short drive from the city are the Adelaide Hills, where you can explore the famous Big Rocking Horse, melba the Chocolate Factory, Hahndorf, the Whispering Wall Mount Lofty, Waterfall Gully, Cleland Conservation Park and Belair National Park and other attractions. If you are adventurous, there are numerous hiking trails in Belair, and a very steep path from Waterfall Gully to Mt Lofty. Reward yourself afterwards with a trip to the Melba, or the German Arms pub in Hahndorf for its white beers. At the Big Rocking Horse you can feed a kangaroo up close, and there are many more native creatures to Cleland Conservation Park to see.
Some favorite beaches in the area are Adelaide Glenelg, Semaphore and Henley, although there are many in between. Catch the tram from the city center to Glenelg (and possibly in a few years semaphore). If you go at the right time, you can take a ride on the historic tram that just make the trip a few times a day. While Glenelg and Semaphore for everyone to have something a bit more Glenelg is touristy and trendy. Remember, wear enough sunscreen and swim between the flags.
A visit to Adelaide would be complete without a trip to the Barossa, McLaren Vale and Clare Valley. Even if you are a big fan of wine, which I did not not know when I've arrived Down Under, the scenery is amazing.
