What to do in Adelaide?
Air New Zealand has non-stop flights to Adelaide from Auckland, with connections from Wellington, Christchurch and the rest of the domestic network. This means you're never more than a quick flight away from the beach lined, vineyard fringed capital of South Australia.
Adelaide aka. RADelaide is Australia's original free colony. While the rest of Australia was being set up as a place to house the liberty challenged, Adelaide was established through aristocratic patronage and investment by the church (it's also known as the city of churches). That's why the Adelaide accent is a little more BBC than Crocodile Dundee. As a result, you'll find culture abounds with festivals, galleries, architecture and museums.
But if museums aren't your thing, the real reason to visit Adelaide is FOOD and WINE. . The Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale are world famous wine regions, with over 200 vineyards within driving distance. Adelaide also boasts the southern hemispheres largest covered Produce Market, and the top quality ingredients are used by the very talented local chefs to produce meals so good you'll be doing breakfast AND brunch. It's also the home of Haigh's Chocolates fyi...
So I guess what we're really trying to say is, grab a ticket, pack your stretchy pants and get to Adelaide!
