Adelaide, South Australia is known as one of the smallest and quietest cities in Australia but there’s still many exciting things to do and beautiful things to see. The beaches and the hills (known as the Adelaide Hills).

Need a quiet relaxing holiday before returning to the stressful and busy life of studying, Adelaide will be the perfect destination to spend 48 hours in. As it’s a short period of time, here are our top things to do:

Glenelg Beach

There are many beaches in Adelaide but Glenelg is the favourite hang out spot. Why? Well, before the beachfront, you can walk along the walkway filled with shops and cafés. As you walk, you can listen to musicians and before hitting the beach, have an ice cream to quench your hunger and thirst.

You can take a long walk along the beach and there are many spots to sit on the grass or on a bench for a break. Want to exercise there’s a volleyball net set up on the sand.

There’s many to do here and it’ll be a fun way to spend your day.

Directions to Glenelg Beach

It is 12 km from the city but doesn’t be disheartened, as you can take a tram from the city centre all the way to Glenelg. Get on at Tram Rundle Mall (Stop Code: 18514) and it’ll stop at 17 Moseley Square (Stop Code: 18537), which is at the centre of all the shops and cafés. The journey will take about 40 minutes.

Rundle Mall

Rundle Mall is a long straight stretch of a walkway filled with shops, but what makes this mall so famous is the art.
As you walk, you’ll see two pig statues and the most famous, the Rundle Mall Balls. There are two shiny, silver balls resting on top of one another. Many tourists like to snap selfies, so take a selfie in front of these iconic Adelaide landmarks and post it on all your social media sites.

Directions to Rundle Mall

It’s located in Adelaide’s city centre and super easy to get to. All you need to do is find Rundle street.

Adelaide Hills and Wineries

Adelaide is famous for its wineries. Want a peaceful day out away from the hustle and bustle of city life, the Adelaide Hills is the perfect place.

There are many small country towns in the hills but we’ll focus on the two, which are iconic for tourists:

Barossa Valley

This is a must-see, as all the wineries are located here. There’s also plenty to see, rolling hills and rows and rows of growing vines.

Stop off at some wineries, take a tour of the vines and learn about its history. Yes, it’ll be all about wine, but this is a hot spot to visit and the scenery alone makes the trip worth it.

 

Directions to Barossa Valley

Unfortunately, you can’t take public transport but there are many tour buses. We recommend a bus tour, as you will learn more and you won’t get lost. All you need to do is catch the bus in the city. All information will be available on their websites.

Hahndorf

Hahndorf is a small town with a German theme. Every day, this town, filled with shops and restaurants is teeming with people (mainly tourists). Everyone that comes to Adelaide visits Hahndorf, as it’s an iconic town due to its charm and hospitability.

You can buy collectables of famous Australian animals, sweets, chocolates, and candles. After a few hours of browsing or shopping, go to one of the many restaurants and have an iconic German meal; sausage, pretzel, and Sauerkraut.

For fun, there’s a German family cardboard set up without faces. Put your face where their faces are meant to be and take endless selfies.
