Adelaide is a decent sized city but you wouldn't know it to visit as it doesn't get crowded and it's famously easy to get around, with just a 20min drive from the CBD getting you into the Hills or down to the beach.
The city centre has the usual assortment of attractions - museums, galleries, parks, historic building's - without having anything overly spectacular (other than the design of the city, which has the CBD ringed by the parkland), but the areas beyond the city limits are worthy of real attention. The Adelaide Hills, the Barossa Valley, Kangaroo Island and the Murray River are the highlights, and all only a short drive away.
Take a look at the list below and see what day's out and things to do stand out for you.
