Adelaide never used to get much of a look in as a tourist destination when it was known as the City of Churches and its main source of pride was not springing up from a penal colony like most other Australian capitals. But the recent development of a vibrant food and wine scene, a growing arts and festival calendar and the injection of some multicultural flavours to the city mean there is now plenty of sightseeing to do in and around Adelaide.

To get a good lay of the land and a crash course in Adelaide culture and history, jump on one of our Adelaide City Tours. The Adelaide City Tour will show you around some of the city’s most well-known attractions, with your friendly guide providing you with informative commentary. Jump on the Adelaide City and Hahndorf tour in the afternoon to discover the city before heading to the hills to explore the oldest German settlement in Australia.

Best Day Tours and Trips from Adelaide

There are plenty day trip options from Adelaide, so make the most of your time by getting out of the city for a day. Nature lovers will enjoy a one or two day trip to Kangaroo Island for close encounters with the native wildlife and breath-taking coastal scenery. Those who enjoy a tipple will love a day trip to the picturesque Barossa Valley to sample the delicious local produce and world-famous wines. If you are short on time, take the Barossa Valley and Hahndorf Tour to explore these two charming regions in one day trip.

Check Out Our South Australia Tours

If you have more time to explore South Australia, there are a couple of multi-day tours to take you further afield. The 6 Day Eyre Peninsula and Flinders Ranges Tour explores the country in South Australia west of Adelaide, stopping for the opportunity to get up close and personal with some of Australia’s sea life at two locations. The tour stops at Baird Bay, where you can swim with friendly sealions, and Port Lincoln to dive in with Great White Sharks! If you want to keep heading west of South Australia, our 10 Day Adelaide to Perth Tour will take you to explore the Eyre Peninsula and Flinders Ranges, then keeps going along the Nullarbor into Western Australia.

If instead you are wanting to go east, our 2 Day Adelaide to Melbourne Tour will take you through South Australia and on into Victoria. Exploring the Grampians and Great Ocean Road along the way and including accommodation, it’s a much more exciting way to travel between these two southern cities than a flight.
