Recently, there has been a bit of a buzz in one of our home towns, as it was named the #9 of the Worlds Top Ten Cities to Visit by Lonely Planet. That town is Adelaide. Having already told tens of people this in recent years, it feels a bit like validation.
We have written a number of posts about some of our Adventures, and even a couple on areas that we loved. Recently it was decided to try to do a bit more of a travel series on a couple of selected areas. With that in mind the next big decision was, which areas? With only a fortnight to cram it all in, making a choice for the first two features was anything but easy (refer to link).

Besides writing about these experiences, there is family to spend time with and friends to visit and hang out with so time is precious.
In the end we decided there will be a Holiday/Tourist trip article on the Barossa Valley, then a series of day trips to places like the Adelaide Hills, McLaren Vale as well as a few Adelaide City area attractions. We have some exciting things lined up in the Barossa already and can't wait to have the experience, get the story and tell you all about what you can expect when you book your holiday / vacation to the spectacular Barossa. Rest assured there will be great stories! Maybe even some friends of WineWalkabout savings to be had! So stay tuned...
All of the Adventures with people, places and things will hopefully capture your attention and help highlight what Lonely Planet has just discovered and we have know for years. Adelaide, or South Australia is a world class tourist destination with fantastic offerings. You can follow along for the daily / hourly updates as to where we are, and what we are doing, with twitter at winewalkabout@kiwiandkoala
If you see us about, come on over and say g'day and tell us about your favorite Adelaide Adventure. If there is someone or something you feel we must meet or experience, shoot us an email, there is always room for one more great story!

Where would I get info on planning a trip from USA to South Australia?ReplyDelete
We think our New Years Resolution will be to make a vacation trip to Adelaide. We love wine and this seems like a pretty amazing place for that. Whats the best time to go and how long is a minimum stay do you think?ReplyDelete
Wow, where would one start. Is there a top ten spots to visit or a particular region that would be the most enjoy? ElleReplyDelete
that's a hard question as each to there own. For a short trip you may be better to pick an area and just do that. If you have a couple weeks you should pick a few places and see more.
