Adelaide, the state capital of South Australia, is a boutique city with a big heart, perfectly located between the pristine coastline and vineyard dotted Adelaide Hills. It sits alongside London as a national park city and is within easy reach of the iconic Kangaroo Island in one direction and the awe-inspiring Ikara-Flinders Ranges outback region in the other.

Circled by some of the world’s best wineries it’s often referred to as the vineyard city of Australia. There’s over 200 cellar doors within an hours’ drive of the city centre, where visitors can enjoy tastings, long lunches amongst the vines, and behind the scenes tours with local wine-makers.

Adelaide’s Great Wine Capital of the World status recognises South Australia’s innovation and excellence in wine making, and if you’re heading down for the Lions tour, discovering the Epicurean Way – the route which links the wine regions circling the city – is a must do. As well as the wineries you’ll come across national parks and trails teeming with native wildlife, and you’ll sleep over in gorgeous lodges, boutique hotels and beautiful B&Bs.

In Adelaide itself, food and wine are celebrated in the laneway bars and restaurants with a big emphasis on local producers. Hole in the wall eateries and hidden drinking dens serving up some of the country’s best dishes and drinks can be found in neighbourhoods across town.

Locals love to party and during July, when the Lions tour is underway, the whole city will be celebrating Illuminate, a month-long festival of art, light and music. Adelaide’s friendly locals are looking forward to welcoming rugby fans who will love spending time in a city which has sports fever running through its DNA.
