Adelaide, the capital of South Australia (SA), is a sophisticated, vibrant city with a rich cultural heritage, and plenty of attractions for the history buff, culture tourist and foodie alike.
The city has had many nicknames over the years, from “the Athens of the south” (a nod to its Mediterranean climate and lifestyle) to “the 20-minute city” (because getting around just isn’t a problem). It is also famous as Australia’s home to great food, the arts and new ideas.
What visitors most notice, however, are the sense of light and space, and the range of things you can do in a day without feeling rushed. That’s what makes Adelaide a great convention city, and why both Lonely Planet and The New York Times rated it in the top 10 places to see in 2015.
