2 Night Adelaide Highlights

It’s both cultural and cool, with a mix of superb shopping, beautiful beaches, fascinating history and excellent restaurants. Spend a couple of days in Adelaide before heading off on your South Australian adventure!
First stop is the Adelaide Central Market. Buzzing with sights, tastes and smells, it’s a melting pot of different cultures and fantastic local food. Nearby, shopaholics feel right at home on Rundle Mall, Adelaide's shopping heart. After lunch, enjoy a City Highlights Tour for an overview of Adelaide’s history and places of interest.

Be sure to wander down North Terrace. Regarded as Adelaide's cultural boulevard, it’s home to the city's grandest treasure troves. You'll find South Australia’s state art gallery, museum, library and botanic gardens, which are all free to visit. Nearby, Adelaide Zoo is home to the city's newest attractions – giant pandas Wang Wang and Funi. Or catch the tram to the beachside suburb of Glenelg. This seaside playground is always buzzing with people enjoying the sand, sea, foreshore parks, cafes and live entertainment. Overnight in Adelaide
