Where to go when you're down in Down Under

Set on South Australia's coast and overlooking the St. Vincent Gulf, Adelaide is a cosmopolitan city full of green parks, renowned museums and international festivals that bring some of Australia's biggest stars down south. Once known as the City of Churches, Adelaide today is bursting with culture. When you're exploring its diverse restaurants, live music venues or hip bars, consider Adelaide vacation rentals to be your home away from home. The city also offers easy excursions to some of Oz's top wine regions – including the Barossa Valley – and the best wilderness destinations, like Kangaroo Island.

Activities for all, both on the water and off

Adelaide is best enjoyed on foot or by bike, thanks to trails and sidewalks made for urban exploration. When temps are up, head out onto the water. Whether you hit the beach in Glenelg, cruise along the River Torrens or paddle-boat on 1 of the lakes, Adelaide's water scene can't be beat. But this is also a major city, so expect to spend your nights taking in live music, dancing and exploring the bar scene. In autumn, the city hosts the Adelaide Festival – an annual international gathering that features various types of arts and fringe events.

Where Australian art, culture and wine converge

Adelaide is home to some of the country's top museums, including the Art Gallery of South Australia, which features noted Indigenous Australian art, as well as the South Australian Museum, devoted to natural history. There's also the South Australian Maritime Museum, and other highlights include the Adelaide Zoo and the Adelaide Botanic Gardens. If the wine lovers in your crew are looking at Adelaide vacation rentals on the outskirts of the city, some of Australia's top wine regions are an easy drive away, with plenty of wineries and vineyards that are not to be missed.

Summer in the city is when Adelaide shines

This bustling city can be enjoyed year round, but consider Adelaide vacation rentals early in the year because it's most inviting in the summer. From January through March, you can hit the beach, or enjoy some of South Australia's top sporting events and festivals. These months are hot and dry, while autumn brings cooler temps, plus the wine harvest in the hills outside the city. The months of June through August offer chilly temps that make for days best spent inland, but be sure to pack some rain gear, as it's likely to rain in the winter months.

A city by the sea... and the gulf... and the river

Adelaide is surrounded by water, from the St. Vincent Gulf to the west, to the Great Australian Bight to the South, to the River Torrens running through the city. Much of the city's daily life revolves around events and activities happening on the water and the city's beaches, though Adelaide's green spaces and parks are a major highlight, too. Just outside of the city, you'll find rolling hills covered in vineyards, and easy excursions to some of the nearby islands. The wildlife and scenery on Kangaroo Island, for one, is not to be missed.
