From maritime history and cultural museums to promenades, picnics and watersports, Adelaide has something to delight every visitor
Only twenty minutes from the CBD of Adelaide and ten minutes from the airport, the coastline of Adelaide’s Beaches has something for singles, couples and families.
Glenelg has eleven kilometres of stunning coastline and wide beaches with charming hotels, bustling shops, sidewalk cafes and plenty of entertainment.
The beaches at Brighton, Henley, Grange and Semaphore have plenty to see and do. Swim, paddle or fish in clear waters, stroll along the coastal path from one beach to the next, enjoy picnics in the parks, take the kids to one of many natural playgrounds, or lunch at cafes and restaurants right on the beachfront.
The River Torrens Linear Park Trail is one of Adelaide’s must do activities. This shared path is accessible to bikes, hikers, prams and wheelchairs. It follows the Torrens River from the city centre to Henley Beach and it is abundant in birdlife, wildlife and river gums.
Port Adelaide has a long and proud history and is South Australia’s maritime heartland where the colonial buildings near the wharves remain and have been declared a State heritage area.
For the more adventurous there are walking trails and bikeways, skate parks, adventure parks and indoor BMX parks to visit, and of course a round of golf to play.
Love history and museums? Visit the Maritime Museums of Port Adelaide or Hindmarsh Fire & Folk Museum or the Bay Discovery Museum in Glenelg to take a trip through time and experience life during early settlement.
