Adelaide Accommodation and Hotels

Adelaide
Adelaide is the capital and most populous city of the Australian state of South Australia, and is the fifth largest city in Australia. Adelaide is centrally located among the wine regions of McLaren Vale, Barossa Valley and Clare Valley, all of which are within day-trip distance.

Adelaide offers a wide range of tastes to suit many budgets in a variety of Asian, Italian and seafood restaurants as well as upmarket French, Argentinian and many other choices. From Friday to Sunday make sure to reserve a table to avoid disappointment. Gouger Street also incorporates Adelaide's "China Town Arch" which fronts a large number of budget eating options. As well as The Central Market, which on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturday mornings are buzzing with produce traders, sights and smells.

There are pubs and bars dotted all around the CBD, but a few districts are worth singling out. Rundle St and its neighbouring area has a number of popular pubs. Hindley St used to be notorious as the seedy home of Adelaide's strip clubs and bikie bars, but it and its surrounds have undergone a renaissance. The seedy places are still there, but so too is a university campus and a number of trendy bars and clubs. Avoid the rougher-looking places. Also important are Gouger St (still mostly restaurants, but an increasing number of bars and pubs) and O'Connell St, home to a few of North Adelaide's popular pubs.

As the state capital, Adelaide is also home to a great number of cultural institutions with many located along the boulevard of North Terrace. The Art Gallery of South Australia, with around 35,000 works, holds Australia's second largest state-based collection. Situated adjacent are the South Australian Museum and State Library of South Australia, while the Adelaide Botanic Garden, National Wine Centre and Tandanya National Aboriginal Cultural Institute are located nearby in the East End of the city. The Adelaide Festival Centre, on the banks of the Torrens, is the focal point for much of the cultural activity in the city, with other venues including the Adelaide Entertainment Centre and the city's many smaller theatres, pubs and cabaret bars.
