    Adelaide is an under-appreciated town, it is funky, cool, artistic and small enough to be homely. If your lucky enough to be in town when Adelaide's fringe festival is on it is a must do!!!

    Insider Tip:Hire a free bike from city bikes and explore the riverside botanical gardens and nearby beaches!!

    The working city

    Adelaide is not a fizzy or glamour city. It is working-oriented and focused on a family lifestyle. However, it is one of the most australian city, concerning its architecture and houses style, so that you can put yourself backwards and forwards in time!

    Insider Tip:Go to the Central Market!

    Adelaide seems to be kind of a place to hang out befor you go on tours. Close to Kangaroo Island and the Barossa Valley it tends to be just an overnight stop. Has a few nice places, but it's not the place to hang arround longer
