At first glance, the city of Adelaide doesn't quite fit the image we might have of an Australian metropolis. But this coastal city and capital of South Australia is not short of charm and offers a different side of this island continent. Charms that can be discovered by climbing Mount Lofty to admire a breathtaking view of the city and its wild surroundings, like Gulf St Vincent, or the Adelaide Hills that surround the city.
More peaceful than Sydney and more traditional than Melbourne in its architecture, th city is the ideal base for a relaxing Australian getaway, in a mild Mediterranean climate. Those who love hiking and nature won't fail to be attracted by its biodiversity, like its colorful parrots in a thousand shades, the lush green hills, the beaches, but most of all Kangaroo Island. This island is famous for its fauna and flora, allowing you to encounter whales, koalas and wallabies, before enjoying a snack of local products from one of the island's many sandy beaches. Those who are truly passionate about nature will be able to satisfy their curiosity by visiting the Adelaide's Botanical Garden.
But Adelaide is also and above all about the way of life. A way of life that begins with the Adelaide Central Market. This crossroads of flavors from around the globe provides a perfect sensory spectacle with its cheese shops, cafes, Asian grocery stores, Bavarian delicatessens and brasseries. Because Adelaide, like all of South Australia, is renowned for brewing the best beer in the country and producing the best wine. Enough to satisfy the most curious and the most refined taste buds. An Epicureanism that can be enjoyed as you wander along Glenelg Pier and dive into the ocean, with the horizon creating a stunning backdrop.
