A map of Greater Adelaide (1:80,000) that features highways, major roads, local streets and suburbs in addition to 24-hour fuel, parks and caravan parks marked on the mapping. On the reverse is an Adelaide City map that has accommodation, shopping, theatres, places of interest and more highlighted, accompanied by an Adelaide CBD street index. Also included is an Adelaide Region map (1:270,000), an Adelaide Rail Network map and a Barossa Valley map (1:9,217). Australia’s wine and festival capital,
Adelaide is picturesquely set on the Gulf of St Vincent. Keep an eye out for major events, including the Adelaide Fringe, Adelaide Festival, Clipsal 500 Adelaide, WOMADelaide and Santos Tour Down Under. In a state well known for its wine, and food, the capital offers the National Wine Centre of Australia and Adelaide Central Market. The region’s fine produce is always prominent on the menus of the city’s many fine restaurants too. Chocoholics won’t want to miss the free tour of Haigh’s Chocolates (bookings essential). Short walks allow visitors to explore most of the CBD on foot, taking in the parks and historic buildings. The South Australian Museum, Art Gallery of South Australia, Adelaide Botanic Gardens and Bradman Collection, at the Adelaide Oval, are other points of interest in the CBD. To head further afield, hop aboard the historic tram out to Glenelg. While you’re checking out the beach at Glenelg, make time to see the Bay Discovery Centre. At Port Adelaide you can take a cruise to see dolphins and visit the South Australian Maritime Museum. From Adelaide it’s just a short drive to the Fleurieu Peninsula to experience its beaches, wineries and wide array of fresh local produce, including olives, olive oil, almonds, cheese, lamb, venison and seafood. Seaside townships like Victor Harbor with its horse-drawn tram and historic Strathalbyn are other highlights. And don’t forget Cape Jervis, the launching point for visits to Kangaroo Island.
