Adelaide City 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.
