    I’d add: The Himeji Japanese Gardens, Cleland Wildlife Park and the museum. Also take a run down to Glenelg. For a quirky place to eat/drink … the Bombay Bicycle Club in Hovingham.

      I have been to Clealand Wildlife Park and Glenelg but do not know the Japanese Gardens. Thanks for the tip, Keith. I will check them out on my next visit to Adelaide!

    What a great list!! Sorry I wasn’t here to do some of them with you! I would add the Adelaide Zoo, the Mt Lofty Botanic Gardens in the Adelaide Hills, taking a paddle-boat ride on the River Torrens, and the Adelaide Migration Museum – there are so many things when you start looking! Have a great week!

      There was a Venetian-type gondola on the Torrens, too, but whether this is a permanent fixture or part of the festival which was going on at the time, I can’t say.

    Thanks for adding these tips to this list! I missed out on the Adelaide Zoo, which is a shame. Paddle-boat on the River Torrens sounds really good, I have seen people kayaking too. Thanks for stopping by. 🙂

    You must have just forgotten to mention the beautiful Adelaide Hills Wine Region – home to some of the classiest cool-climate wines in Australia and only 25 minutes’ drive from the center of the city!

    There is heaps to do in Adelaide! You have covered a lot of it and certainly enough to keep anyone busy for a week! One thing to note is that the tram doesn’t go to Henley Beach. However, it is easy enough to catch a bus from the city directly to Henley Beach, or alternatively catch a train to the Grange train station and walk to Henley along the beach. It is about 2km, it is a lovely walk.

      the same bus that goes to Stirling, stops at Crafers where there is a bus to Mt Lofty or alternately or vice versa walk Mt Lofty Summit to Waterfall Gully, also visit Brighton Beach to Hallett Cove to Port Noarlunga. With careful planning you don’t need a car there is adequate public transport but does need planning as it’s not promoted

    I’ve been to the pretty town of Adelaide, a short course at Uni SA, then visiting some places like Cleland Wildlife Park. It’s like to go back to visit adelaide, a city that has many sweet memories. Thank you for sharing Michela !
