Adelaide and surrounds might just be my favourite Australian city, and I can't wait to visit again. It is so beautiful, easy to access, chilled and filled with so many things to do!
We spent two days there, and we loved every second! We stayed at the Crowne Plaza, which is the perfect location - very close to the shopping of Rundle Mall and even closer to restaurants where we sat outside along the street enjoying the beautiful cusine and high 20's October weather.
Our first stop on Day 1 was the popular 2KW restaurant for lunch which was absoulutely devine! The cocktails and the view of the city were so good that we returned the following day! We then visited the historic Penfolds winery, a short 10-15 minutes drive from the city. The tour was so interesting!
On Day 2 we headed to the Adelaide Hills and enjoyed some cheese tasting at Gruthal Brewery before learning how to open champagne bottles with a sword at Sidewood! My neighbours had told me all about the German town of Hahndorf, so I was excited when we strolled its streets - it was a Tuesday, but there were so many people which created an awesome vibe. I bought some delicious fudge and a cushion cover for my Mum. We then headed to one of the many beautiful places to eat in the Adeladie Hills before returning back to the city for some shopping at David Jones and another street side dinner.
Before we ventured out into rural South Australia on Day 3 of our week away, we went to the Adelaide Central Markets. Rows and rows of fresh fruit, veges and meats, gorgeous coffee stops and the famous Haigs chocolate shop! A definite highlight!
