Most Viewed Things to Do in Adelaide

  • 26. Elder Park

    Elder Park is a pleasant park by the river Torrens. There are some interesting water features and sculptures to look at - I particularly liked the sculpture that resembled paper boats. The birds are...

  • 27. Festival Centre

    4 out of 5 stars

    The Adelaide Festival Centre is where you can see all kinds of entertainment. Opera, Theatre, Dancing, Singing, Circus, allsorts, so just check the website for what is coming on in the future. In...

  • 28. Arcades

    A couple of doors down Rundle Mall (westwards) from the beautiful Victorian Adelaide Arcade is the Regent Arcade. Like the Adelaide Arcade, the Regent Arcade runs between and connects Rundle Mall and...

    4 out of 5 stars

    This classically styled Victorian building, featuring Corinthian style ornamentation and built of local Tea Tree Gully freestone and Dry Creek bluestone, was designed by Edmund Wright, a former city...

  • 30. Kangaroo Island

    Kangaroo Island is the third largest island off the Australian mainland. It is seven times the size of Singapore. It was uninhabited when it was discovered in 1802 by Matthew Flinders and about a...

  • 31. Walking

    I think this is a MUST DO when in Adelaide. North Terrace is 1.6km long, and quite an easy walk. It is along here where I think the most interesting buildings are. I love walking along here, seeing...

  • 32. Rural South Australia

    The surrounding hills around the city of Adelaide are known as the Adelaide Hills, funny about that! On this visit, it was not too long after terrible Ash Wednesday fires in 1983 and there was a lot...

  • 33. East Terrace & East End

    While Adelaide is often referred to as the City of Churches, it has also always been well endowed with pubs. In addition to its more modern watering holes, a large number of historic pubs remain in...

  • 34. Mount Lofty Ranges

    Located in Cleland Conservation Park , Waterfall Gully is home to the largest (18m) of seven waterfalls in the park and is a lovely stop to visit in itself from Adelaide (10kms) or as a base for a...

  • 35. Murals

    This rather different piece of art work (is it competition to the Mall's Balls?) is a colourful addition in one of Adelaide’s narrowest roads. The inflatable ball is wedged between Enyesbury College...

  • 36. Museums

    Owing to a cricket-mad husband, our very first stop after checking in to our hotel was the recently-redeveloped Adelaide Oval, where he wanted to visit the Don Bradman Collection museum. We found...

  • 37. Chinatown

    Adelaide’s Chinatown is, to be honest, rather underwhelming when compared to those in say Sydney or Melbourne. It is small and consists of just a handful of Asian grocery stores, Chinese herbal and...

  • 38. Gaol

    4 out of 5 stars

    This old gaol is the part of the Australian history. It's not just interesting, because you can learn about Adelaide's penal history, but architecturally is also worth a visit and to spend a few hours...

  • 39. Shopping

    From 9am until 1pm, there is a thriving Farmers' market every Sunday at the Adelaide Showgrounds in Unley. When it is wet, stalls are relocated indoors. As well as fresh fruit and vegetables there are...

  • 40. Aboriginal

    I was very disappointed with my visit to Tandanya Aboriginal arts centre. Disappointed to the extent that I have written a separate review on it under Tourist Traps. In that review I mentioned three...

  • 41. Gorge Wildlife Park

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    This is a must if you get to stay a few days in beautiful Adelaide. Even as a local I adore coming here. You get to walk amongst wallabies and kangaroos, feed monkeys, an ape, pelicans, kangaroos and...

  • 42. Parliament House

    This review is a hopefully logical continuation of my separate review on Old Parliament House – located adjacent to this building. If you have not read it, I suggest you have a look at it before...

  • 43. Parks and Gardens

    This is a pretty river with walkways. It goes through the centre of Adelaide and through Adelaide botanical gardens. I strongly recommend going for a stroll along it. We saw pelicans and black swans...

  • 44. Family

    Kart Mania offers a unique controlled environment with all the excitement and competitiveness of Formula One racing. Everything is supplied including genuine race karts, protective gear and a 320...

  • 45. Entertainment

    Saturday night, and what to do that won't cost a fortune? We had our own car, but you can come here easily by public transport. The Pacing Track is located on Globe Derby drive, which is 15kms from...

  • 46. Rymill Park

    This is one of prolific sculptor John Dowie’s many works in Adelaide and my favourite. Others of his work include a number of bronze busts on North Terrace, the ‘Girl on a Slide’ in Rundle Mall and...

  • 47. Gumeracha Toy Factory

    Took a day-tour into the Barossa Valley via Prime Mini Tours. It was A$48 each circa 2001. The tour took out us through scenic views of the Torren Gorge, as well as a drop by Angus Park Dried Fruits...

  • 48. McLaren Vale

    McLaren Vale is just a 45 minute drive from Adelaide and has more than 60 wineries where you can sample the exquisite wines of the region. The ICON wines for the region iare shiraz and cab/sav. Of...
