Occasionally you hear about a special place off the beaten track where the people are friendly and welcoming, the pace is a bit slower and there is plenty for you and your family to do without forcing your way through a crowd.
Adelaide is one of those special places!
When most people think about Adelaide, it is the iconic sights and sounds of the CBD that spring to mind.
With a wide selection of accommodation to suit all budgets, the central business district of Adelaide is the perfect place to use as a base for your South Australian adventure.

And there is always plenty to do and quite a few of the popular tourist activities are either walking distance from most of the hotels and motels in the city or easily accessible by public transport.
We absolutely love our beaches and you will too! From the tourist beacon beaches like the Glenelg foreshore to Australia's first nudist beach at Maslins in the southern suburbs, we can cater to all tastes.
You can take the kids to a local beach, explore the reefs, enjoy a wide variety of water sports or just go fishing.

Who wouldn't want to shop in Rundle Mall! In our most well now shopping precinct we are able to stroll along a comfortable (recently refurbished) mall with all of the larger department stores you would expect to find in a capital city along with a large number of smaller specialty stores.
If you can't find it in Rundle Mall, Rundle Street or Hindley Street, it probably does not exist.

But Rundle Mall is not our only shopping precinct of note. We also have our own Harbour Town, Jetty Road at Glenelg, Melbourne Street in North Adelaide and a couple of very large Westfield Shopping Centres just to name a few.
And don't forget to drop in at the Central Markets while you are here for all your fresh food and produce needs.
Whether you are travelling with or without children, you may like to consider planning a trip to one or both of Adelaide's wine growing areas.
You can choose between McLaren Vale in the southern suburbs or the Barossa Valley in the north, both are within easy driving distance from the CBD, or you could book yourself onto a wine tour and have someone else do the driving for you!

And don't worry about carting your wine purchases home in your luggage, as many of the Cellar Doors will ship your selections to your home address for you and they can arrange insurance as well.
