Adelaide is South Australia’s cosmopolitan coastal capital. Its ring of parkland on the River Torrens is home to renowned museums such as the Art Gallery of South Australia displaying expansive collections including noted Indigenous art, and the South Australian Museum, devoted to natural history.
What most visitors notice, however, is the sense of light and space, and the range of things you can do in a day without feeling rushed. That’s what makes Adelaide a great convention city, and why both Lonely Planet and The New York Times rated it in the top 10 paces to see in 2015.
Adelaide is an easy city to enjoy, whether you prefer 5-star dining, quirky laneway bars, exploring the bustling Central Market, cycling in the parklands, strolling in the picturesque Adelaide Hills or relaxing on a beautiful stretch of beach.
Adelaide’s diverse cultural mix guarantees the food is sensational, with Rundle Street in Adelaide’s east offering a mix of historic pubs and family-run cafes and restaurants.
