Life's a beach in Adelaide
Adelaide may be known as a city of gardens, but it's hard to resist the allure of its beautiful beachside suburbs just moments from the heart of the city. Whether you're seeking the 5-star Stamford Grand Adelaide treatment or groove to the 4-star sway of the dual Oaks hotels, quality Adelaide accommodation in never far from the jetty in Glenelg.
With a blissful Mediterranean climate and a tramline connecting to Victoria Square, Glenelg is a great base for Adelaide holidays. Heading north reveals further ocean-adjacent hotels in the suburb of West Beach, which backs on to the Adelaide Airport so you can go straight from the airport lounge to lounging by the sea.
Cosy up in an Adelaide Hills haven
Half an hour outside the city, the scenery shifts and a distinct, peaceful ambience takes over. Reaching into the Barossa, the Adelaide Hills are a winery-laden, rolling hill district – an ideal hinterland escape for day-trips and overnight visits from Adelaide.
After exploring the quaint villages, walking trails and local markets, head to Hahndorf or Stirling and immerse yourself in the quiet country bliss. The Grand Mercure at Mount Lofty stands out as a 4-star boutique manor, with Deluxe View and Superior Spa rooms as well as self-contained cottages, among an assortment of bed and breakfasts scattered throughout the region.
