Adelaide is well known for its expansive history, culture and traditions. Visitors to Adelaide will quickly get a taste of that by discovering the many world-class museums, festivals and sporting events that occur year-round. On top of that, throw in the magnificent Australian wines, the fine, locally produced food and the fantastic laidback and livable vibe of Adelaide, and tourists may be considering a return trip before they even leave.
Adelaide’s beaches are legendary. The best known are Glenelg and Henley Beach, which are a 20-minute drive from the city. The Adelaide Hills, studded with national parks and reserves, are also close to the city too.
Adelaide has a Mediterranean climate. Temperatures from December to February average around 85 F, whereas June to August temperatures average around 60F. Rainfall is sparse.
Adelaide is a year-round destination and the time of your visit will depend on what you want to do when you get there.
January and February are busy due to school vacations and February and March are also busy as they are popular festival months. For whale watching, June to October is high season on the Eyre and Fleurieu Peninsulas.
There’s not really an off season, although June, July and August temperatures can be chillier.
There are several car-rental desks and Taxi services at the airport. Skylink Shuttle links the airport, city and Adelaide Parklands Rail Terminal (Keswick).
Walking is the best way to explore this beautifully laid-out city, but public transport is reliable and fairly cheap. Buses, trains, a tramline to Glenelg and the O-Bahn busway all help to keep Adelaide moving. The O-Bahn is a guided busway, traveling from the city to Tea Tree Plaza, a suburban shopping center.
Taxis are readily available, either from city taxi stands, hailing them on the street or ordering them by phone.
Biking is also a very popular way to get around the city.
Adelaide Airport is the fifth-busiest in Australia, and handles approximately 7 million passengers annually. The airport was established in 1955, and the updated international and domestic terminal was opened in 2005. The airport has received numerous awards, including world’s second-best international airport, in the five to 15 million passengers category, in 2006; and in the same year, it was crowned Capital City Airport of the Year at the Australian Aviation Industry Awards in Cairns.
The expansive new terminal building can cope with up to 27 aircraft, including an A380 Airbus, at the same time. There are airline lounges, 14 aerobridges, 42 desks for check-ins and 34 shops. The airport will also receive a brand-new road network and a multi-story car park, which will more than double its current parking capacity.
The improvements are more than cosmetic – the control tower will almost double in height. Due to these improvements, more major international airlines will undoubtedly make use of the airport. Currently, these include Thai Airways International, Emirates, Etihad Airways and Qatar Airways.
Booking a flight to Adelaide (ADL) is your only option if you intend on flying to Adelaide. It is only a 4.1 mi journey from Adelaide to Adelaide’s city center.
