Get up early to explore the colourful Adelaide Central Market, the largest covered market in the Southern Hemisphere. Visit the Kangaroo Island Stall, Mushroom Man, The Smelly Cheese Shop, and Lucia’s Fine Foods, and pick up some goodies for a lunchtime picnic. Walk to the Jam Factory to visit the studios of Adelaide's most creative artists and snap up some ceramics, glass or jewellery to take home. Stroll along tree-lined North Terrace, Adelaide’s cultural precinct, and visit the South Australian Museum, which has the world’s largest collection of Australian Aboriginal cultural artefacts. If you are a cricket fan, tour the refurbished Adelaide Oval, one of the world’s most beautiful cricket grounds, and pop in to the Sir Donald Bradman Museum.
Enjoy your picnic at the Adelaide Botanic Garden, with its majestic tree-lined avenues and Australian native gardens. Visit its striking glasshouse conservatory, Amazon waterlily pavilion and Art Deco palm house. Walk to Rundle Mall, from where you can take a tram to Glenelg to stroll along the jetty, swim at the family-friendly beach and have a cool drink at a waterfront cafe. You can even go swimming with dolphins with Temptation Sailing. Enjoy a gourmet dinner with a difference at Orana, one of Australia’s top restaurants, where the seasonal tasting menu features modern interpretations of local and native wild foods (the downstairs Blackwood is a more informal bistro). Then immerse yourself in Adelaide’s distinctive bar scene, visiting places such as Clever Little Tailor, Maybe Mae, Pink Moon Saloon, Udaberri, Hains & Co and on a laneway bar crawl around Leigh and Peel streets. Stay in a historic sandstone building at the tranquil Adina Apartment Hotel Adelaide Treasury.
