 - Adelaide
Eye-catching Adelaide, the capital of South Australia , is known in Australia as the ‘City of Churches '. A well planned and laid out city, Adelaide has a grid of wide shopping streets and various squares all within a couple of square kilometres making it almost impossible to get lost in the city centre. Adelaide 's reputation for elegant architecture and cultural standing is yielding to an exciting, new vitality and verve for some of the best of Australia 's festivals, arts exhibitions, theatres, pubs, clubs and all manner of entertainment.

With a Mediterranean style climate, Adelaide has warm, dry summers making it perfect for open air activities and a great place to explore on foot or by one of the many tours available. The selection of accommodation available in Adelaide and the surrounding areas is superb with everything from congenial bed and breakfast hosts to five-star, luxury hotels.

In the heart of seaside Glenelg, only 20 minutes from the city centre, is a magnificent beachfront which continues south to Brighton then Onkaparinga and the pretty Fleurieu Peninsula .

Adelaide is also the stepping stone to some of Australia 's finest wine producing areas. Rent a car and drive for a couple of hours, or relax and take a guided tour, and you'll pass through some stunning scenery with cosy villages, steeped in history, to enjoy on your way to valleys bursting with wineries, great restaurants and tons of other attractions.

Adelaide is the capital of South Australia and known for parks, churches and a more conservative life style. The River Torrens runs through the centre of Adelaide and is a most pleasant city for walking around. Close by is the Barossa Valley, Kangaroo Island, Glenelg and Victor Harbour.
