The Adelaide airport is well connected to services that will help you get around. The airport includes a handful of options like buses, rental cars, limos, and even bicycles. We want to help you navigate your way out of it after you land so here are some things to think about so you can pre-plan how to get into Adelaide after you touchdown:
Get on a bus - This is arguably the quickest way to get into the city from the Adelaide airport. The public transport bus in Adelaide is called the JetBus and it picks up and drops off from the new bus stop located on the left side of the building which you’ll see right after you leave the terminal. To ride on the JetBus you’ll need to grab a Metroticket which you can purchase from the driver as a day pass or just a single one-way trip. More info can be found here: Adelaide Metro. Make sure you look for the J1 and J2 routes on the site to get an idea of where you’re going.
Grab a shuttle - These are right outside of the plaza as well after you exit the terminal. The Adelaide airport has city shuttles that go to and from major hotels and destinations in the city. There are a variety of options as far as shuttle service like the Northern Flyer/City Shuttle which goes to and from major Adelaide hotels (info at the T1 info booth), and the Adelaide Airport Flyer which goes everywhere.
Hire a taxi/rent a car - If you’re not one to be navigating public transport then get a taxi to take you into the city. The taxi pick up point is clearly sign posted once you come out of arrivals. Most major car rental companies operate out of Adelaide so if that’s what you’re into, you shouldn’t have a problem finding a rental agency giving you the freedom to explore the wider Adelaide regions.
You made it! Welcome to Adelaide, the capital of South Australia. Adelaide is most loved for its food, wine, classic architecture, gorgeous beaches and some of the best cafes Australia has to offer. It’s the fifth largest city in Australia with plenty to do and see. You’re going to love it so much, you won’t want to leave.
There are plenty of great places to visit in Adelaide to make the most out of your trip. You can visit the historic Port Adelaide which is known for its boat cruises, buildings, and dolphin watches. Or you can take a trip down to the Pultney St. to see the Rundle Lantern light display that runs from dark to about midnight each night.
There are tons of gorgeous beaches like the beach and pier at Glenelg and if you like spectacular views, you have to check out Montefiore Hill and the Mt. Lofty Summit. The views of the Adelaide plains from these spots will take your breath away.
Adelaide has long been known for its famous wine regions but is also making a name for itself in food and culinary circles. It’s the gateway to some of best wine regions in Australia and all within easy reaching distance of Adelaide:
Barossa: About 1hr north of Adelaide, known for its red wine, particularly Shiraz
Clare Valley: Under 2 hours north of Adelaide, known for its white wine, particularly Riesling
McLaren Vale: 45mins south of Adelaide, known for its red wine, particularly Shiraz
The best restaurants in Adelaide are found on Gouger Street, Hutt Street, and Rundle. You can find just about anything your heart desires on any of those streets so be sure to come hungry. Many are BYO (charging a small corkage), so be sure to pick up an amazing local wine to accompany your meal.
You have to check out WOMAD (World of Music Arts and Dance) in March and the Royal Adelaide Show while you’re there. There is a lot going on every Spring in Adelaide. There’s the Clipsal 500 racing event (which also brings with it huge street parties) and of course the Adelaide Fringe Festival is a must-see as well (people come from all over the world just for this event).
Adelaide is also home to many museums and art galleries which should satisfy most art lovers. Some of the most popular museums and galleries include the Art Gallery of South Australia, South Australian Museum, and the South Australian Maritime Museum where you can see ship wrecks. You might even spot dolphins swimming past Port Adelaide while you’re there.
If you like shopping, Adelaide has plenty to offer. You can visit the Rundle Mall which is a pedestrian only mall with over 800 shops located right up by Terrace Street (you can’t miss it). There’s also the Tea Tree Plaza (referred to by the locals as TTP) which has about 250 shops and is a destination stop for almost all the city buses. You could also visit the largest shopping center in Adelaide, the Westfield Marion, located outside of the city center in Oaklands Park. Everyone knows where these malls are at so ask a local and get shopping.
Haigh's Chocolate is located at Greenhill Rd, in Unley Park. If you like chocolate (who doesn’t) this is the place to visit not least for the free samples!. The Adelaide Botanic Gardens, are a no-cost fun place to visit and are found right in the middle of the city. This is a good place for a picnic while you’re out and about. Of course no trip to Adelaide would be complete without visiting West Beach. It’s great for walking or swimming and fun for the whole family.
There are so many more places to see, visit, eat, shop, and drink in Adelaide than we have listed here. This is just a taste of what awaits you in Adelaide and if you like the sound of it then be sure to check our low costs a, flying daily, all year round.
