This South Australian capital is a hidden gem of Australia, often overlooked by travel makers. Adelaide is certainly worth a visit itself; it’s charming and laid-back with a fascinating cultural heritage, natural wonders, world-class wineries and an incredible dining scene. Brightsun Travel offers cheap flights to Adelaide, taking you to the heart of this eclectic capital. Read our top 6 reasons why you should think about heading to Adelaide this year.

1 - Accessibility

Adelaide is renowned as the 20 minute city, due to a claim that anywhere within this compact destination can be reached in 20 minutes, including the city centre, the airport and the city’s greater areas such as its surrounding beaches. This claim is not based on factual evidence so may not be 100% accurate, but it’s a general example of how easy Adelaide is to explore.

2 - Cultural Festivals

Adelaide plays host to a great number of colourful festivals and other special events throughout the year. Whatever you’re into, be it music, food, art or history, there will certainly be an event that celebrates it in Adelaide. Popular festivals include Adelaide Fringe, one of the world’s most diverse art festivals and the award-winning Sounds by the River, which is dedicated to rock music.

3 - Stunning Wine Regions

There is a great number of world-class wine regions and vineyards set just outside of Adelaide that produce some of Australia’s finest wines. The acclaimed Barossa Valley is a popular wine hub with charming towns, delicious local produce and over 80 cellars to explore. Even if you’re not a wine lover, it’s still worth venturing out to Adelaide’s nearby wineries as the landscapes are absolutely breath-taking.

4 - Pristine Beaches

Adelaide boasts some of the country’s most alluring beaches, which have pristine sands, crystal clear waters and sunny blue skies. The coastlines of the city are serene and less touristy, so they are very inviting. Favourites include Seacliff, which offers great swimming conditions and lush picnic spots, and Glenelg Beach, which has a vibrant atmosphere with plenty of beachfront restaurants, pubs and shopping areas.

5 - Native Wildlife

Adelaide is an exciting wildlife destination which inhabits all kinds of Australian animals; the Adelaide Park Lands is a great spot which protects lots of biodiversity, including birds, reptiles, mammals and insects. Then there’s Adelaide Zoo, which is home to the only Giant Pandas in the southern hemisphere. A short drive from the city is the Cleland Wildlife Park, where you can encounter the likes of koalas, wombats, kangaroos and Tasmanian devils.

6 - Hidden Lane-way Bars

The last but by no means least reason to visit Adelaide is because the city has a booming lane-way culture. Explore not just bars but various intimate restaurants, coffee shops and clubs nestled throughout Adelaide’s charming lane-ways that weave through the city. Maybe Mae is a hidden lane-way gem with a great selection of wines and cocktails, as is the Loft Wine Bar, which has a stylish and sophisticated atmosphere.
