5 things to do in Adelaide, South Australia Oct 02, 2012
If your next holiday destination Melbourne is on your list, dont forget to visit the beautiful neighbour City, Adelaide. Adelaide maybe not as famous as its neighbour like Melbourne or Sydney as destination at Australia, but I can convince you, after visit it for once, you will keep this cozy city at your memory.
1. Spoil your tongue with delicious foods with the best food from many countries
still at down town, at the China Town, you can try culinary from Asia (china, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thai, India, Vietnam etc) to Southern America (Argentina)
If you want enjoy great food with great friends at open air, why not walk to Rundle Street di East End Adelaide or sip the Southern Australia wine at many bar or reataurants.
If this is not enough luxury for you, you can try watching the sun set at beach whilst drinking the wine at Glenelg and Henley Beach or at National Wine Centre.
If you wonder why food in Adelaide has great quality? why not sneak into Adelaide Central Markets (still at the heart of Adelaide City).All the best fruits, dairy, vegetables and meat are sold here and Adelaide best chef got their material..
Torrens River, Adelaide, SA
2. Relaxing your self at the green and calming parks at Adelaide
A bit bored with your hectic life, want to have a relaxing time for 1 or 2 hours? Why not try walk down the stret and take a rest at the parks. Like most parks in Australia, parks in Adelaide also open for public and free of charge. Adelaide is proud of their 29 beautifull parks.
You can rent rowing-boat, or bike at Elder Park or smell the roses at Rymill Park. If you and your friends dream to have quality time at parks, take a look at Botanic Park (is not as big as Botanic park at melbourne, but you will enjoy and back to your place with smile and fresh face), another choice is either walk or bike from the hill to River Torrens Linear Park or for the best quick hibernation, you can try Adelaide-Himjei Garden
3. Beach Activity
Gleneg, just like Bondi in Sydney or St Kilda Beach at Melbourne suburb, is the famous beach you should step your feet on.
Either watch or swim with dolphins, or if you have budget try yacht. Dont worry if you get hungry, as I said, not different from St Kilda or Bondi, Gleneg has many great cafes.
Modern and hecti beach not your style? If you have much time and love fishing, try suburb Henley and enjoying dinner at etnich food stalls.
Having vacation doesnt mean you can’t get education, yet you have opportunity to learn the history at Port Adelaide.
The other choice, please tick this onn your list : Le Fevre Peninsula and Largs Bay.
4. Cultural Trip
Adelaide or Australia maybe the newest country at southern earth, but the indigenous people already alive thousands years ago.
Why not get in touch with the aborigin, Kaurna Tribe by joining the tour at Botanical Park to learn about herbal medicines. Jot down this list if you still wonder about aborigin culture : Aboriginal Cultures Gallery at South Australian Museum and National Aboriginal Cultural Institute.
Wonder why many of the old building has European style? Uhm, it’s about time to dig your knowledge about European descent culture at some museums at North Terrace, Adelaide Town Hall and Port Adelaide
5. The hills, enjoy European Style
You dont classified your self as “Beach Boy”? Dont worry, not far from the city, only 40 minutes by car or public bus, you can enjoy the hills and Bavaria huts at Hahndorf, the oldest Dutch vilagge at Adelaide, visit The Cedars, house of old Artist Hans Heysen and get lost at time machine of Lobethal Market.
Did I say five? Oops actually you can find other interesting activities that will cheer your holiday up. Ever watched “Kung Fu Panda” the movie? Yup, you are right Panda is always related to China, but hold hold, you can see by your eyes 2 cute Panda, Wang-wang and Funi and also their baby at Adelaide Zoo (not far from theh Botanic Park and Adelaide University).
Bon Voyage :-)
