The time for international travel is back upon us, and what better way to celebrate than by booking a ticket to Adelaide!

Adelaide is just a quick flight across the Tasman, with most flights averaging around five hours from Auckland. The ‘Festival City’ is a great destination all year round, and with so much to see and do while you’re here, hiring a rental car from Ace Adelaide Airport is the best way to see the sights.

Adelaide is not the most-visited capital city in Australia, however it may be one of the more underrated ones. It has it all, from a beautiful coastline, world-famous wineries, and endless rolling hills at its doorstep, plus plenty of activities in the city centre itself. There’s so much to see and do, and you can start from the moment you land at Adelaide Airport, thanks to Ace Rental Cars.

See the City of Adelaide with Ace

Adelaide always has something going on.

Known as the Festival City, there is always a chance that your trip might just be at the same time as some sort of show or major event. There’s something for everyone here, so check online before you land and see if you can pick up some tickets. The Adelaide Fringe Festival takes place in the summer; it’s a massive celebration of all things theatre and is the second-largest fringe festival in the world, coming close to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. There are over 600,000 attendees each year, so it is well worth a visit if you can time your trip right.

If you don’t fancy the heat of a South Australian summer, you can always check out the winter festivals. Wrap up warm and head to WOMADelaide Festival: a multicultural four-day event celebrating music, arts, and dance. You can also check out the Adelaide Film Festival hosted each spring, where talent from all over Australia and the world showcase their latest ventures.

Of course, there’s plenty to do and see if attending a festival isn’t your top priority. Perhaps head to the Art Gallery of South Australia; with over 40,000 works of art in its collection, it’s a cultural celebration of heritage and fine art. Spend a morning here before heading to the Adelaide Botanic Gardens. In the warmer months, this is the perfect place to unwind and enjoy, however, the gardens can be enjoyed at any time of the year. It’s a huge 50 hectares large, with a bonanza of native and foreign flora. Go for a stroll, and maybe bring a picnic if the weather is nice.

Drive to the Wine Region with Ace

This might be a controversial statement, but the wine in South Australia can definitely rival that of New Zealand. Don’t believe us? Try it for yourself!

South Australia is home to some fantastic wineries, and thousands of holidaymakers fly here simply to enjoy a day cruising along the roads. The rolling hills and extraordinary landscape make the journey all the better. It goes without saying that if you are going to taste your way through the wineries here, please have a designated driver in your party and follow the local road laws.

The most famous wine region in the area is, of course, Barossa Valley. It’s home to some of the best wineries Australia has to offer, as well as plenty of fresh produce and artisan goods. If you want to try out some other wine regions, the Adelaide Hills is also a fantastic wine region, and just a short drive from Adelaide City Centre.

Then, once the city has been explored and the wines tasted, it’s time to head to the coast. The Fleurieu Peninsula is incredible, and you can have plenty of beautiful beach days along the shore. Bring your camera, because these beaches are out of this world and are still relatively unknown to many tourists visiting Australia.

You might be flying across for the city, the wines, or simply as a trip to visit family or friends. But, while you’re here, you’ll discover just how phenomenal Adelaide is. Pick up your rental car from Ace Adelaide Airport and head off on an amazing trip away.
