Adelaide, the capital of South Australia, is one of the largest cities in Australia. Located on the southern end of mainland Australia, the city is nestled between the Gulf of St. Vincent and Mount Lofty Ranges and is directly above the Fleurieu Peninsula. Thousands of tourists meet in Adelaide every year thanks to both its convenient location and its propensity for holding lively music festivals and dramatic art exhibits. The Art Gallery of South Australia and Adelaide Festival Centre both keep the cultural scene new and vibrant, while Adelaide’s nearly 30 parklands ensure residents and visitors have plenty of green space for physical activity and fun.

Cheap hotels in Adelaide cater to both national and international visitors and are located in the CBD, within easy access of Adelaide Airport, and in Adelaide’s various suburbs. These hotels range from budget accommodations to boutique and five-star hotels. Whether you are a corporate traveller, a couple seeking a romantic getaway or a family on holiday, Adelaide has ideal accommodations suitable to meet your needs and price range.

Transportation is easy here in Adelaide, which is often called the 20-minute city. Buses and trains carry visitors to outlying suburbs, while buses, shuttles and trams provide convenient transportation in and around this pretty city. For those in search of more eco-friendly solutions, bikes and solar-powered buses are also available.
Adelaide has much more than occasional festivals and exhibits for its visitors. In fact, as the wine capital of Australia, the region is home to 16 distinct wine regions, wine trails, and wine festivals for discriminating connoisseurs. The city is also home to the South Australian Museum, Adelaide Botanic Gardens, and Ayers Historic House, home to Sir Henry Ayers, for whom Uluru was once named. Just outside the city are Gorge Wildlife Park and Kangaroo Island, where tourists can explore native wildlife and more.

Like most of Australia’s cities, Adelaide is cosmopolitan and diverse, with many residents hailing from Greece, Asia, Africa, Italy and Germany. Immigrants have enriched Adelaide’s culture with elements of their own native culture, and their influences can be found throughout the city, including in its many restaurants. Dining options are plentiful, and Adelaide has more than 100 pubs, bars and clubs. Some of these establishments date back to the 1800s while others are modern and chic. Beachfront cafés, fish-and-chips takeaways, franchises and family-style restaurants are all common sights here.
