Calme, charmante cette petite ville du sud de l’Australie m’a séduite. L’ambiance y est reposante la journée, le soir le centre y est animé. Les prix y sont légèrement plus bas que Melbourne et Sydney. Cette ville vaut le détour au moins quelques jours. Nous y avons passé plus de deux semaines.

A small street with organic and second-hand shops leads to the beach. By bike you can ride along the seafront. You can also swim there. The shallow water attracts families on weekends.

Free bike

In Adelaide, you can borrow free bikes from anywhere in the city. You can find these free bikes in several places in Adelaide (universities, tourist office, hostel...), you can easily find the names of the stations on the city's website. After, having borrowed your bike, I advise you to take a little ride along the river to Henley Beach. About 1 hour to get there along the river.

6. Beaches


Various very nice beaches in Adelaide. The best known is : Glenelg. Quickly accessible from the city. You can take a tram and be there in 20 minutes. Moreover, at the end of the day you can drink a cocktail with your feet in the sand while admiring the sunset at the bar "The Moseley Beach Club".

Otherwise, Henley BeachThere are many restaurants and bars along the beach. This family-friendly beach, with its gentle waves and long esplanade, stretches from Henley Jetty to nearby Grange Beach.
