Adelaide Central Market
A trip to Adelaide wouldn’t be complete without visiting the Adelaide Central Market. As the largest undercover produce market in the southern hemisphere, the place is alive with noise, colour and energy. Have lunch at one of the cafes or make your own by picking and choosing from the varied fruit, cheese, bakery and butcher stalls.
JamFactory Contemporary Art and Design
For people who appreciate artistic flair, visit JamFactory Contemporary Art and Design. Its four studios produce ceramics, furniture, metal and glass and visitors can view glass blowing in action. For a behind-the-scenes look, book a tour.
River Torrens/paddle boats
Take a stroll along the Linear Park Trail that follows the River Torrens. Stop for a picnic or if you’re feeling active, jump aboard a paddle boat and give your legs a work out. For those after a more leisurely time, a ride on the Popeye motor boat is the way to travel.
Adelaide Botanic Garden
Take time out in the middle of the CBD in the 16 hectare Adelaide Botanic Garden. View native Australian plants or head indoors to the Bicentennial Conservatory. There’s the beautiful restored Victorian Palm House and Santos Museum of Economic Botany within the garden too.
South Australian Museum
The South Australian Museum will inject your visit with culture and is renowned for its world-class natural history and cultural collections. It has the biggest collection in the world of Australian Aboriginal cultural material, with more than 3,000 artefacts on display.
