Spring in Adelaide marks the start of longer days and warmer nights. Known as the 20 minute city, you can take walk among nature in the hills, have fish and chips on the beach and enjoy the many fabulous events and venues on offer. Read on to discover our top tips to enjoying spring in Adelaide.
Adelaide Botanic Garden
The Adelaide Botanic Garden is one of the most beautiful in the country with 16 hectares of Australian natives, rare exotic and ornamental plants, lilies and lush, green grass. Be sure to visit the Palm House for insta-worthy moments. Built in 1877, it is definitely one of a kind glass house.
Adelaide’s bars are known for mixing up a mean cocktail, guaranteed to get you thawed-out in the warmer weather. Sip a classic cosmopolitan at Leigh Street’s Pink Moon Saloon, a famed espresso martini overlooking the city lights at Hennessy Bar or a negroni in the 1950’s-inspired Maybe Mae.
Paddle on the Torrens
