Adelaide is the capital city of South Australia, where one can see a blend of different cultures. The cultural diversity added extra flavors for a traveler. We visited the city during the August month when SALA (the South Australian Living Arts Festival) was happening.
Places to visit
As we were visiting the city in winters, we did the ice skating at Glenelg Winter Wonderland. It also has many restaurants around its premises. We took a train ride from CBD on Sunday and visited the Flinders Street Community markets. Don’t miss the gourmet pie of the Red Door Cafe. Do check out at the furniture in the ‘one small room’ and vintage treasures at the ‘Hype and seek.’
We took a stadium tour at Adelaide Oval, my husband being a cricket fan. Then we tried climbing the Roof, and after that, we had a delightful meal at the Hill of Grace restaurant. Next day, we did hiking at the Mount Lofty. Adelaide botanical gardens located at the end of the North terrace houses many exotic plants and conservatories.
Our kids loved visiting the Adelaide zoo with kangaroos, pandas, quokkas, wallabies, koalas and Australian sea lions. The ticket price is $32.50 for an adult and $18 for kids. We look at the family pricing which is concessional at $85. Also, they loved the amusement park ‘The beach house’ where we took many rides like ferries wheel, bumper boats, and waterside.
If you love to do cycling, hit the Riesling trail in the Clare Valley and head to the cottages to relish gourmet food platter around the wood fire. Luxury spas are also available at the cabins. On the last day, we visited Port Adelaide. The kids loved to spot the dolphins on the cruise. We took the trip of museums on themes of transport and other heritage buildings there.
