Music lovers from around the world gather during the city’s festival season at its lush parks surrounding the river, while the booming Central Business District offers plenty of art, music, and café culture year-round. Adelaide is also the gateway to Kangaroo Island, arguably the best place to see wildlife in the wild Down Under, or allows for an easy drive up to the incredibly preserved, majestic Outback.

#timetotravel The Adelaide Gaol, steeped in history and located in the heart of South Australia's capital, is a haunting yet fascinating destination. Walking through its formidable gates, I felt transported back in time, immersed in the stories of convicts and prisoners who once occupied these cells. The guided tours provide gripping insights into the harsh realities of colonial-era incarceration, showcasing the original cellblocks, gallows, and prisoner graffiti. The dark history of the gaol is palpable as you step into the cramped cells and the eerie punishment yards. The gaol's architecture, with its bluestone walls and looming watchtowers, adds to the atmosphere. It's a sobering reminder of Australia's penal past and a testament to the evolution of justice and rehabilitation. For history buffs and those intrigued by true crime stories, the Adelaide Gaol is an absorbing and educational experience that leaves a lasting impression. #australia #adelaide

#timetotravel The South Australian Museum, nestled in the heart of Adelaide, is a treasure trove of knowledge and culture. During my visit, I was deeply impressed by the museum's extensive collections, which span natural history, Indigenous heritage, and world cultures. Exploring the natural history exhibits, I marveled at the diversity of Australia's flora and fauna, from ancient fossils to vibrant ecosystems. The Aboriginal Cultures Gallery showcased the rich heritage of Australia's Indigenous peoples, offering a profound understanding of their history and artistry. The museum's architecture is striking, with its classical façade and modern interior. The Mortlock Wing, a historic library, is a hidden gem filled with rare books. Whether you're a history enthusiast, a science buff, or simply curious about the world, the South Australian Museum is a captivating journey through time and culture, offering an enriching experience that's both educational and inspiring. #australia #museum #instatravel

#timetotravel The Adelaide Botanic Garden is an oasis of serenity and natural beauty in the heart of South Australia's capital city. Strolling through its lush landscapes is a calming escape from the urban hustle and bustle. I was immediately struck by the garden's diverse collection of plants from around the world, each thoughtfully curated. The First Creek Wetland, with its native flora and resident wildlife, is a serene highlight. The Bicentennial Conservatory, a gleaming glass cathedral of plants, is a marvel of engineering and botanical wonder. The garden's historic architecture and themed sections, like the Rose Garden, offer something for everyone. One can easily spend hours exploring, picnicking, or simply relaxing by the ponds and lawns. The Adelaide Botanic Garden is a horticultural haven, a sanctuary for both nature lovers and those seeking a tranquil urban retreat. It's a testament to the city's commitment to preserving and celebrating the beauty of the natural world. #australia #garden #botanicalgarden

#vianasjourney Maybe Adelaide wasn’t as busy as other AU cities but it’s honestly one of the easiest city to transport from one place to another. Most area accessible by public transportation either bus, tram or train. But walking around the city itself are enjoyable and fun. You can do a lot of shopping, dining and even many places you can take nice pictures for instagram especially during the nights. The lighting are really making the area more lively. Take note that if you wanna visit nearest area around the city, you may use the tram and use your own card for it as it’s also accepted visa and mastercard (info shared by station staff). There’s really no need to take the local card. But if you planning to travel further, a daily pass which cost 11.50 AUD are a better option.

In his work "25 Things to Regret Before Dying", Otsu Hidekazu said, "Beauty is not just a destination, it should also be on the way. Travel is not just a destination, but also about feeling the people and things along the way, the bits and pieces that have happened on this land." If life has bound your body, don't let it bind your heart too. As long as your mind is there, even if you just take a bus to the unknown, it can still be considered exploring the planet. Stop 1: Kadina, which can be considered the busiest town on the Yorke Peninsula. There are large supermarkets, restaurants, and everything you need. It takes about two hours to reach Kadina from Adelaide, and you can rest here for a short time to make purchases. Buy more water and food, as there won't be as many places to indulge in on the next journey. 2nd stop ~ Moonta, Moonta has an extra-long jetty, a wide beach, clear water with visible bottom, and if lucky, you may see devil fish swimming in the sea. Stay for 30-40 minutes is enough~ Stop 3 ~ Port Turton, just for refueling. It takes about half a tank of gas from Adelaide to here, and this is basically the last refueling point along the way. The gas stations in such towns are very distinctive. In addition to the old gas pumps, the payment house is also a tin house, with a shower room and a toilet behind the house. Remember to go to the cashier to get the key to open the door first. After refueling, head straight to the toe of the Yorke Peninsula and Innes National Park without much ado. Station 4 ~ Innes National Park. This national park requires tickets, which can only be purchased online or at the visitor center in the park. You can purchase tickets in advance or use the computer at the center. The cost is 10 Australian dollars per vehicle and only credit cards are accepted, no cash. Also, due to the many birds that inhabit the park, drones are completely prohibited, unfortunately, there are no aerial photos. The 5th stop, Pondalowie surf break, is only one kilometer away from Pondalowie. After parking the car, there is a small path that crosses a hill and leads to the beach. There are signs on the side of the road warning of snakes, so please be sure to stay on the man-made path and not enter the grass on either side. On this road, I saw kangaroos and emus~ 6th stop, after enjoying the sunrise in the morning, checked out and drove down to Edithburgh, a small town that has existed since the 18th century. I didn't come here to appreciate the weight of history, but purely for the wind farm two kilometers away from him. I always feel that windmills are a symbol of freedom.

Hi~ world After seeing the world, we frantically make up for the missed encounters of the past three years in the following two months. Drive to Adelaide, Australia to see small animals. Go on a self-driving trip to Luang Prabang, Laos and experience the French style. Go on a self-driving adventure and explore the Garden City of Singapore. ... In the future journey, we will continue to rent cars and drive around the world.

Getting There - Adelaide has an international airport with lots of domestic routes and international routes to destinations in Asia and New Zealand. The CBD of the city is a 15 minute drive from the airport. Attractions - Glenlg becah is not far from the CBD and there are also wine tours and animal conservation parks that you can see Hotels - we stayed at the Sofitel hotel in the CBD and it was lovely. There are a lot of options available but most are at the more expensive range Food & Restaurants - lots of restaurants and bars are available with lots of options #adelaide #australia #tourism #glenelg

Name: BoatShed Cafe Location: 1A Heron Way, Hallett Cove SA 5158, Australia (40 min away from Adelaide CBD) Service: the service is really nice and really fast Foods/drink: the food was not too bad but it wasn’t anything too special for the price. A poached egg sandwich was $20 which is a lot for 1 sandwich. Atmosphere: the atmosphere is great. The view is amazing. The location couldn’t be better for a cafe. #tripblazers #urbanexplorer #tripblazers #beachlife #foodie #campingglamping
