The capital city of South Australia is simply enchanting, a treasure trove of shopping, fine arts, gastronomy and outdoor activity. Adelaide is the heart of the world's opal industry, selling gorgeous stones from South Australian mines. Be sure to hike the aptly named Mt. Lofty Ranges and catch a wave off the Fleurieu Peninsula. Indulge your adventurous palate and traipse into nearby wine regions like the famed Barossa Valley to pick up a deliciously drinkable souvenir.

Jess came to pick us up from our Adelaide Hills accommodation. There was only 1 other couple so it was an extremely comfortable day trip. The whole day was great, it felt like having our own personal chauffer. Four wineries and lunch in Handorf was...MoreThank you for your review Chris. We are happy to hear you had a great day and loved having you and Kirrilly on board. Kindest regards, Jess and Gayle

BOUNCE is a world where the wall becomes the floor, a slam-dunk is within your grasp and the rules of gravity no longer apply. It's packed with lots of things to do with kids and the family. BOUNCE takes the rush of getting airborne and adds a bunch of new dimensions - from aerial manoeuvres to slam dunking, wall running and dodgeball warfare. The best part is it doesn't matter if you're under 5 or an action sports junkie - you're never too old or too young to have an awesome time. With more than 100 interconnected trampolines housed within huge, colourful spaces at a growing number of locations around Australia, BOUNCE is a spring-loaded urban playground with a wide range of things to do with kids; where hard surfaces are replaced with circus-grade sponge, giant air bags and Springs. The rush of BOUNCE is infectious. Look around and everyone's buzzing, whether they're running up The Wall, launching into the Big Bag or loosening up in the Free Jump arena. It can be as easy or as challenging as you like - a training ground for aerial sports acrobatics, a place to kick back and look out over the action, or just a hard-core form of exercise that lets you burn energy without noticing you're in the middle of a cardio workout. And our friendly staff are always there to offer safety tips and show you a few moves along the way.
Kids had a fun time, its a great way for them to expend a lot of energy! Staff are on hand if required. And there are various "bouncey" activities they can do in addition to parkour! It's our son's choice of activity.Thank you for spending some family time here at Bounce and for going out of your way to leave a review. Glad to hear the kids had fun burning off all their energy. See you again soon!

I have loved Haigh's chocolates forever so visits are frequent.
The showroom is bright, inviting, able to cope with a crowd and full of tempting delights.
This time I was on a quick Mission and sadly in a hurry... A box of Chocolate Truffles was to be today's buy...So I had to bypass the 'specials' and the great variety on offer..Giant and little frogs and a huge range of boxed delights and glass cabinets full of tempting old and new pieces of hand processed treats of every flavour imaginable.
In spite of the large group of visitors awaiting a tour (Not to be missed, fond memories of one of those) I was served promptly, but not rushed, and offered choices of box presentation...and a 'taste of the day'.
My mother in her nineties only ever wanted one thing for birthdays and Christmas...A Box of Haighs. I understand why!

Adelaide Oval has long been one of Australia’s most recognisable and prestigious venues and hosts cricket, football, Concerts, functions and major events at the highest level. Its prominent location as the centrepiece of the Adelaide CBD’s revitalised riverbank precinct makes Adelaide Oval an outstanding destination. Known the world over as a beautiful and historic sporting venue, the Oval attracts visitors in their thousands from within South Australia, interstate and overseas. Along with sports fans, the Oval has enormous appeal to visitors with an interest in history, culture, food and wine, as well as a large contingent of business travellers.
Home to the mighty Adelaide Crows. This stadium has been radically rebuilt to add modern comfort and enhance the traditional features.'The hill' a grassed area in front of the amazing antique scoreboard was retained. A area to sit on the grass and share a beer or 20 with other likeminded supporters.
With a capacity of over 50000 it's big enough to really feel the roar of the crowd. During the cricket season there is a additional food market out behind the members stand which adds to the experience. The bars and food outlets are ample but very overpriced.
State of the art visual display and sound system adds another element to the event.
Well worth the trip to SA to come watch your team play. Most likely the best stadium in Australia.

In the heart of the city but another world away ... Take time out to explore the beauty and diversity of plants from across Australia and around the world. Spend an hour or spend the day among the 50 hectares of magnificently maintained Gardens and stunning architecture. Relax in the shade or enjoy a coffee among some of Australia's finest plant collections.
This garden is a great place to wander around and enjoy the weather and Gardens. Interesting Fountains, water lily building, rainforest building, rose garden, forest trails, vine arches, gazebos... so much to see! Great spot to enjoy the outdoors before or after going into the city.

Established in 1869, the Adelaide Central Market has been a thriving hub of food and culture for over 145 years. With over 80 traders under one roof, the Adelaide Central Market is one of the largest under cover market in the Southern Hemisphere, buzzing with life and colour all year round. The Market offers a huge range of fresh food including fruit and vegetables, meat and poultry, seafood, cheeses, bakery, smallgoods and health foods, along with some of Adelaide's most popular cafes and eateries.
This Market is a must and a highlight of each of our visits to Adelaide. Choices, so many wonderful choices. Foods, meals and so many taste sensations. Wandering among shops with so much to offer and that delivers in spades. The fresh breads, cold cuts, cheeses, fresh fruit and veg, freshly ground coffee, baklava, and so much more. We visit many times and come away with many delights. We love it!

A must-see in the city of Adelaide not only because it holds one of Australia's finest art collections, but also because it offers a variety of activities for all ages.
The gallery on North Terrace is situated on the University complex and easily reached on the Glenelg tram.
It is not unlike any gallery from the outside but from the inside we found it very different and refreshing.There were some internal alterations but this did not detract from the general setting.
We found the gallery' and the exhibits very refreshing and was one of the highlights of our stay in Adelaide.
Do not miss a visit here.

To me, this is not the most interesting building to view from the outside. It is situated among other such buildings (Eg Art Gallery, Museum, Government Buildings, etc.). However, the interior is most impressive. The Library houses (among other things) an impressive collection of documents about the entire history of Adelaide and South Australia and its people. For people like me, interested in geneology and other history, The State Library of South Australia is a 'gold mine' of information. The library staff are excellent with their knowledge and willingness to assist the public.
