Adelaide is fast becoming one of Australia’s favourite tourist destinations, with plenty of beauty and excitement in the city itself.

Adelaide Day Trip

But what makes Adelaide such an incredible place is some of the wondrous regions that surround the city.

From the Barossa Valley’s world class wine to Kangaroo Island’s spectacular wilderness, through to the Adelaide Hills and their quaint beauty, Adelaide is possibly Australia’s day tripping paradise!

Let’s take a look at some of the wonderful adventures that make Adelaide such a great place to travel around…

World class food & wine in the Barossa Valley

The Barossa Valley is the crown jewel of Australian wine, a world famous testament to grapes and good food. A trip to the Barossa Valley can be filled with any manner of gourmet gallivanting, from tastings at legendary wineries like Peter Lehmann, Seppeltsfield and Yalumbra, through to gourmet cooking classes at the home of Australia’s favourite bon vivant, Maggie Beer.

The region is a true ode to everything indulgent in life, and can be enjoyed on a stunning day tour out of Adelaide.

A natural wonderland at Kangaroo Island

Along the Great Barrier Reef and Kakadu National Park, Kangaroo Island is a place that encapsulates the joys of Australian nature. Spend the morning traversing the incredible Flinders Chase National Park, where kangaroos, koalas, seals and other animals wander around the magical terrain, before lazing around southern Australia’s best beach at Vivonne Bay.

Kangaroo Island is the perfect place to take the kids, with the Kangaroo Island Wildlife Park providing plenty of opportunities to get up close with some of Australia’s most beloved animals.

A charming day in the Hills

The Adelaide Hills are a quaint and charming region just a quick drive from Adelaide city centre. The region is famed for its farm culture, beautiful landscape, galleries and, of course, a little German heritage. Yes, the town of Hahndorf is one of the most unique day trips you can have from an Aussie city, with plenty of German chocolate, beer and singing to complete a fun-filled day in the Hills.

Be sure to head to the Beerenberg Farm and the Hahndorf Farm Barn, where delicious produce and super cute animals await families and day tripper’s alike!

So, it’s not bad for a day trip

Adelaide is a wonderful town in its own right, only to be enhanced by the joyous adventures that await you as soon as you leave the city proper!
