Adelaide was once home to Mr JT. It’s been referred to as the ‘City of Churches’ but is now better known for the food, wine and festivals. Adelaide Fringe and Tour Down Under are the two major events on the calendar in this city.

Explore

Adelaide Central Market – worth a visit to sample a huge range of fresh food including cheeses, bakery goods and meat. Considered one of the largest under cover markets in the southern hemisphere.

North Terrace – walk along to gaze at and venture within the historical buildings along this precinct.

Adelaide Botanic Garden – take the time to walk through these beautiful gardens, it’ll leave you feeling energised.

Adelaide Zoo – home to the only breeding giant pandas in the southern hemisphere.

Glenelg – an easy tram ride from the city, this beachside is worth a visit for the vibrant dining scene and the night life.

Adelaide Hills – lots of wineries and breweries. Visit the early German settlement town of Hahndorf, an easy day trip – with plenty of old world charm.

Eat

Peel St – everything on the chalkboard menu is delicious and flavour packed. Portion sizes are a plus! We recommend booking ahead.

Thanh Thanh – classic, quick, cheap, good Vietnamese food.

Golden Boy  –  dinner only for contemporary thai. This place is fun. Order anything, it’s all delicious.

Chinatown Cafe – expect great food fast and on a budget. We recommend trying the Hainanese chicken or the Laksa.

Cafe Troppo – favourite spot for breakfast or brunch. Coffee is very good. Mrs JT loves the chilli oil drizzled all over her poached eggs and avocado.

Blackwood – showcasing South Australian produce.

Stay

North Terrace is host to any one of many Adelaide hotels for prime location to all of the CBD attractions.
