Indulge in a Romantic Getaway This Autumn
Autumn is the perfect season for a romantic getaway and Adelaide is a fantastic place to have one. Moments of sunshine as you walk among the crunchy, autumn-coloured leaves in the Botanic gardens and beautiful sunsets over the Torrens River are just some of the unforgettable experiences you can enjoy.
Here are just some of the things you could do with your partner this autumn in Adelaide:
The Adelaide Botanic Gardens
Taking a stroll through the Adelaide Botanic Gardens is a beautiful way to spend some of your time. You’ll literally feel like you’ve been transported somewhere else, away from the hustle and bustle of the city which is actually right at the doorstep of the gardens. With 50 hectares, exceptional architecture and some of the finest plant collections in the country, you’ll be glad you brought your partner here for a stroll, picnic or peaceful coffee or meal at the Botanic Gardens Restaurant or Cafe.
Watching the Sunset over the Torrens River
The river Torrens runs right through the heart of Adelaide and sunsets over the river are beautifully picturesque. You won’t need to look for a good view if you’re staying at the InterContinental Adelaide. With exclusive views of the river, you’ll be able to watch the sunset while you sip on your champagne, before you venture out for a perfect evening. When you return, the stars will be shining brightly, offering you another magic view to finish off your night.
Hire Bikes and Explore the City
If you and your partner enjoy getting fit together, then why not take a free bike from one of the 20 locations around Adelaide. All you need is a form of ID and you could both be leisurely biking your way around the city and indulging in the sights of a clean and attractive city of Australia.
Vintage bikes are available from Concierge
A romantic getaway in Adelaide wouldn’t be complete without some fine dining on local produce. With some of the best wines and food in Australia, you will be sure to find the perfect restaurant to suit your tastes. Explore the heart of the CBD including the award winning Japanese restaurant Shiki, the laneways or venture further out to Glenelg to take up a night time stroll along the beach. There’s always plenty to choose from when it comes to food.
Hot Air Ballooning
If you want your romantic getaway to be truly unforgettable, then you’ll want to consider going in a hot air balloon while you’re in Adelaide. Only an hour from the CBD and you’ll find yourself at the Barossa and floating high above vineyards and green rolling hills. You’ll also get a view of historical buildings and towns as you take in the tranquillity of being in the sky.
