Why is Adelaide Underrated?

If you’re thinking of going on holiday but are unsure where, you might not think of Adelaide as your first choice. The truth is, Adelaide is one of the most underrated cities in Australia, often overshadowed by larger, busier cities like Sydney and Melbourne. Adelaide has so much to offer, and once you visit it, you’ll be sure to make it a regular holiday destination.

Here are some of the reasons Adelaide offers just as much, if not more than other capital cities!

Adelaide is Quaint

Escape the hustle and bustle but still have the experience of being in a CBD. In Adelaide you’ll get the city vibe with trendy bars and cafes, funky laneways, charming buskers and excellent shopping without the cramped, busy side that comes with other cities.


Adelaide is Easy to Get Around

Adelaide is nice and open, meaning the transport is uncomplicated. Whether you’re driving or using public transport, you’ll have no trouble finding parking or getting around. Most parking is offered at a reasonable rate meaning you’ll be able to drive into town and spend the day there without having to worry about paying a huge amount on parking.


Adelaide Offers the Beach, CBD and Rolling Hills

Where else offers you such easy access to the beach, city and cliff top lookouts within minutes of each other? Adelaide won’t have you driving hours upon hours in traffic just to arrive at a more isolated, natural location. Take a quick tram trip into Glenelg and you’ll reach the beach, or jump in the car and drive out to the Adelaide Hills where you can try some of the best wines in the country. Everything is just a short way away, leaving less time travelling and more time enjoying.

Adelaide Gives You Cultural Experiences

Adelaide is home to some of the best festivals and they all offer an eclectic variety of music and cultural experiences. Some of the largest and popular festivals include:

  • Adelaide Fringe Festival: This festival is actually the largest open-access festival in the Southern Hemisphere. Over 1000 shows run right across the state in around 500 venues, making this a must-see in Adelaide.
  • WOMADelaide: WOMADelaide has grown in size and popularity over the years, bringing some of the best local and international music acts to the state. Situated in the Botanic Park, this festival is a multicultural feast for the senses, with international food music and performances in every corner.


Adelaide is Clean

If you love going exploring in a great, big city but hate the pollution, smells and sounds that come with it, then Adelaide will be perfect for you. Clean, and easy to find a spot to picnic in or just rest, the CBD is a clean and enjoyable city.
