The One Thing You Don't Want to Miss

South Australia exports 70% of the country's wine so make a plan to visit a few vineyards while you're here. Luckily, Adelaide is surrounded by most of them. The nearby Barossa Valley is home to some 60 wineries alone. Most of them have tastings so get ready for a cork-popping party you'll never forget!

Sporting Adventures

There's an endless array of outdoor activities you can take part in, including biking, golfing and swimming. But for something a little out-of-the-ordinary, sign up for a nocturnal walk at the Warrawong Sanctuary. The refuge comes alive when the sun goes down, as most of the species are creatures of the night. Bettongs, pottoroos, bandicoots and many, many more await!

Shopping for Bargains

There are shops for ceramics, glass, furniture, woodcrafts, paintings, and iconic Aussie outfits. Who couldn't use an authentic Akubra hat? And if you really want to live large, you'll be glad to know most of the world's most lustrous white opals are mined in Southern Australia, and Adelaide is the best place to buy them.

Get a Taste of Local Flavor

Come and watch bitter cocoa beans turn into sweet chocolate bars at Haigh's Chocolates. The shop is only five minutes from the city's center and a mecca of deliciousness for chocolate lovers. Handmade sparkling Shiraz truffles, chocolate-covered ginger slices, and violet creams make great gifts to bring back home - if they'll actually make it that far!

Local Currency

The local currency used in Adelaide is the Australian dollar (AUD). Credit cards are widely accepted. And you can use your ATM card at banks around the country as long as your card is connected to the international banking network. Travellers cheques are also accepted.
