All About Adelaide
Adelaide is the capital city of South Australia and the fifth-largest Australian capital. It’s surrounded by more than 70 kilometres of coastline on the west and the Adelaide Hills on the east. The hills, which are a short 30-minute drive from the city center, are home to historic villages, including Hahndorf, Australia’s oldest surviving German settlement. Adelaide is perhaps most famous for being the wine-growing capital of Australia — including the world-class Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale wine regions.
Adelaide’s urban center is relatively compact — it’s known as the 20-minute city because you can walk from one end to the other in a very short amount of time. The town’s lively main street reflects its German heritage, most evident in the shops selling cuckoo clocks and German trinkets, and the restaurants and pubs offering traditional German fare. Adelaide is also known as the City of Churches, for its large number of ornate houses of worship within the city and surrounding suburbs.
The best time to stay in a holiday rental in Adelaide
Adelaide is most pleasant between the months of September and November and from March to May, when the weather is warm and sunny. The city’s most famous event is the Adelaide Fringe festival which takes place in February and March every year. After Edinburgh, this is the largest fringe festival in the world, and the city comes alive with a month-long celebration of art, live theatre, music, and comedy. The summer months are also a great time to take advantage of the city’s many beaches, including the popular Glenelg beach — just remember to pack a hat and sunscreen. Whenever you decide to visit, you will find a range of holiday homes and rentals in Adelaide available.
