We have collected the top 20 things to do in Adelaide
Adelaide is the capital of the state of South Australia and one of the most populous cities of the country. The area was originally inhabited by the Kaurna people, then it got turned into a British province and named after Adelaide of Saxe-Meiningen, queen consort to King William IV. The city was designed in a grid layout, interspaced by wide boulevards and large public squares, and entirely surrounded by parklands. Today, Adelaide is noted for its many festivals and sporting events, not to mention its food and wine, its long beachfronts, and its large defence and manufacturing sectors. While tourism is not as high as in some of the larger cities, it’s still a very popular city in the eyes of tourists. We have collected a list of the top 20 things to do in Adelaide to try to draw in even more people to this beautiful city.
