Over the past week, i have been lucky enough to spend some time exploring Adelaide, for the first time. Leading up to my trip, i spent some time exploring local instagram pages, such as @southaustralia for inspiration. I was blown away by the beauty of the country, sea and city and couldn’t wait to get there and see it for myself.
Thankfully, i had someone to show me around ( my partner in crime aka wonderful boyfriend…naw) so i was able to see Adelaide like a local and tick off all of those ‘must see’ places.
Here is a little snippet of what we got up to….
My First time to Adelaide, South Australia
On day one we enjoyed a delicious pub lunch in the longest surviving German village in Australia, Hahndorf. After lunch we enjoyed a scenic drive through the Adelaide hills, towards the city. In the city, i was able to see the beautiful River Torrens, The Adelaide oval, Botanical Gardens and Rundle Mall.
On day two, i was taken on a little road trip 40minutes out of Adelaide to Victor Harbor, the perfect day trip away from the city.
Day Three i was thrown into the Adelaide spirit at the grand final of SANFL at the Adelaide oval. The ‘bloods’ won their first grand final in 32 years, which made for a great day and even greater atmosphere.
Day Four, my boyfriend took me to Mount Lofty Summit. Mount Lofty has the most incredible views over Adelaide hills and city. Hikers/walkers flood to the top of the summit after a hefty walk up to the top. After taking in the view, we decided to head to Glenelg Beach to catch the sunset. Glenelg reminded me so much of home. I was ecstatic to see the sun setting on the water, lighting up the sky.
We were invited to the BAROSSA VALLEY but unfortunately ran out of time. The Barossa Valley has been added to the top of my list for my next visit to South Australia.
Have you ever been to Adelaide? What else would you add to my list for my next visit?
