City of Churches

Adelaide, to some, is the civilized part of Australia. Pretty and leafy, with spacious green parklands, history buffs can download several walking tours around Victoria Square. Foodies will relish the vibrant culinary scene here. And everyone will be fascinated with the Aboriginal Culture Gallery at the South Australian Museum with an amazing collection of boomerangs, grouped according to purpose - hunting, fighting, ceremony.

Wander through the glass houses in The Botanic Gardens and see everything from endangered plants to noisy pitta birds to water lilies that only open at night. Or visit the Cleland Wildlife Park where you can hold a koala (cute) or a snake (scary).

Tour Adelaide Hills where you’ll explore the enchanting village of Hahndorf and stop in one of several excellent wineries. Or visit “the prettiest cricket stadium in the world,” the Adelaide Oval, with a collection from Sir Donald George Bradman, the world’s greatest batsman. And you thought Aussies only played footy.
