Originally called Tarntanya (red kangaroo place) by the Kaurna people, the original custodians of the land, Adelaide is the capital city of South Australia and was first settled by European free-settlers in 1836. 
With a packed events calendar and some of the country’s best restaurants and small bars, there’s always something exciting happening in Adelaide. If you’re around for a few days, experience the best the city has to offer before taking your explorations further to the surrounding wine regions, beaches and outback that make South Australia such a fascinating place to visit. Autumn is festival season with major events such as WOMADelaide and Tasting Australia. It’s also a great time for spotting autumn foliage in the surrounding wine regions.

There are numerous ways to get to the city from the airport. Take a taxi or ride-share (Uber) for around $20 to $25 AUD. Public transport services JetExpress and JetBus offer cheap bus transport to the city. Refer to the Adelaide Metro website for timetables and costs. For a door to door service to major city hotels, Northern Flyer offers a shuttle service. Just jump on board at the airport (after you’ve paid of course!).

Getting around Adelaide is easy. Adelaide Metro provide connections via bus, train or tram from greater metropolitan Adelaide. Once in the city the tram is free between South Terrace and the Adelaide Entertainment Centre, as well as along North Terrace. The Adelaide Connector bus links North Adelaide to the city and loops throughout the inner city areas and is free too.

In autumn, the weather is pleasant with average temperatures between 12.7 - 22.7°C (55 - 73°F) and very little rainfall.
