The capital of South Australia, Adelaide, lies on the coast and has a reputation for being a cosmopolitan city with plenty of natural space.
Adelaide is known as a bit of a party city, with a great arts scene, typified in the yearly fringe festival often referred to as ‘Mad March’. Indeed, no matter what their interests, business travellers coming to stay in serviced apartments in Adelaide are likely to find plenty to do while they are there. As a regional hub, it is a centre for manufacturing and retail, but also plays a significant part within Australia’s defence industry, too.
Although over 75% of South Australia’s population live in Adelaide, it feels far from cramped or over populated. This is thanks in part to an abundance of parkland in the city itself, particularly the ring that runs around the heart of the CBD, close to where many of the city’s stunning colonial era buildings can be found. There are also plenty of conservation and national parks, especially in the hills rising immediately to the east of the city. And that’s before even mentioning the more than 70 kilometres of glorious coast on the western side of Adelaide, where the city meets St Vincent Gulf.
South Australia is wine country, and Adelaide itself has an excellent food and wine scene, with a diverse range of cuisines cooked up by the city’s equally diverse cultural atmosphere. Guests coming to stay in an Adelaide serviced apartment may well want to take things a bit further, as there are plenty of cultural and wine tours available, with visits to well-known vineyards.
Although Adelaide is well placed as a transport hub, both for routes heading north, further into the heart of the country, and also east-west, the best way to come into the city is by air. The main airport is conveniently located on the western side of the city, with an extremely quick run into the centre. A comprehensive metro system combining bus, rail and tram services also make it easy to get around by public means.
