Adelaide exists contentedly as a cultured, diverse, and attractive city with a laid-back center, leafy residential districts, and an underlying cosmopolitan atmosphere.
Adelaide is known for shopping, parks, museums, historic sites, and zoos & aquariums. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: admire the natural beauty at Adelaide Botanic Garden, browse the eclectic array of goods at Adelaide Central Market, steep yourself in history at Adelaide Oval, and identify plant and animal life at Cleland Wildlife Park.

For photos, ratings, other places to visit, and tourist information, you can read our Adelaide journey builder website .

Perth to Adelaide is an approximately 5.5-hour flight. You can also take a train; or drive. The time zone changes from Australian Western Standard Time (AWST) to Australian Central Standard Time (South Australia) (ACST), which is usually a 1 hour difference. Expect little chillier weather when traveling from Perth in December: highs in Adelaide hover around 30°C, while lows dip to 17°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 14th (Sat) early enough to travel to Kangaroo Island.
