Get around[edit]

By car[edit]

Most of Adelaide Region features good sealed roads and you can drive to all main places.

By public transport[edit]

Public transport is generally good where available.

On foot[edit]

Walking should be only be done over short distances or on well known routes, unless you are a seasoned hiker. Hydration is essential, especially in hot weather.


Plenty of good stuff to see, from the city itself, to the rural idylls around.


Visit some of the great tourist areas in this region.


Consider eating some Haigh’s Chocolate. Or perhaps visiting the 145-year-old Adelaide Central Market. Adelaide has many great cafe's and restaurants.


Adelaide is Australia’s wine capital. If you don't like wine, other drinks are available.

Stay safe[edit]

Take plenty of water with you if driving anywhere. Especially if it is very hot you should avoid getting dehydrated.

Snakes are very rare in Adelaide, if lucky enough to see one remember: don't get near to snakes, if you see one (more likely in the rural bush), then back away from it slowly or walk away without startling it or stepping on it. If bitten, contact an ambulance on Triple Zero (000) or visit a hospital immediately to receive the appropriate anti-venom if needed. Try to take note of what the snake looked like since most are not dangerous, but some do require treatment.

Go next[edit]

Consider visiting other regions of Australia, depending on how hot you want to be, either head north (hotter) or south to Tasmania (colder).
