If you want to take a holiday in one of Australia’s best wine regions, don’t go to the middle of the Outback. Head for Adelaide, where vibrant city life, beautiful beaches and much more blend perfectly with reds and whites. Now’s your chance to escape the everyday life for an awesome time in South Australia, and our Adelaide flights will have you there in no time.
Flights to Adelaide will land at Adelaide Airport (ADL), 6km from the city centre. You can hop on a JetBus, which will connect you to the central business district. From the CBD, the Skylink Adelaide can shuttle you to many places in the area. But don’t forget to snag one of our car hire options if you want your own set of wheels.
Slide into your sandals and make your way down to Glenelg and sprawl out on the warm sand. Oil yourself up until you shine like a new Chevy and soak up as much sun as you want. Once you’re properly bronzed, grab a cold beer and a tasty meal from one of the pubs on Jetty Road.
If you’re getting into town in the afternoon and don’t feel like sitting on the beach, head 22km south to Cleland Conservation Park. You can walk among a pack of emus and then cuddle with a koala. If the furry little marsupials seem like they’re tripping, they probably are, thanks to all the eucalyptus leaves they eat. No, you can’t have any.
Are you landing at night? No problem; just drop your luggage off at your Adelaide accommodation and head for Rundle Street. It has everything from low-key pubs to banging nightclubs, so take your pick.
If you want to blend in with the local populace, browse the shops at Rundle Mall, Australia’s first pedestrian street mall. You must pay your respects to the life-size bronze pig sculptures—Horatio, Truffles, Augusta and Oliver—that are picking around a rubbish bin.
Save your files, shut down your computer and tell your boss you’ll get back to the Johnson deal when you’re done relaxing. Browse Wotif’s offers on cheap flights to Adelaide and save big bucks when you plan your escape.
