Trip Report A Short Stay in Adelaide City

Jump to last reply

Earlier this month we had a most enjoyable short stay in Adelaide.

Our accommodation was everything we could have wanted. We stayed in Miller Apartments in Hindley Street. The Deluxe accommodation is fine if you don’t mind no direct light, but for us the Executive apartment was much preferable. We had a one-bedroom, living room and kitchen, washing machine and dryer and a free-standing shower in the bathroom.

We were in such a central spot – walk across to Rundle Mall, trams and buses very short walks away, and an easy stroll to the entertainment centre and riverside walks.

The tram trip to Glenelg is an interesting way to spend a half day – if the weather had been cooler we would have walked along the shoreline, but the humidity was too much for me. It was actually much hotter in the city, but the lack of humidity there made the heat more bearable.

We used the free city bus to explore most parts of the city. The Central Markets had a fantastic range of foods, the Botanical Gardens were worth exploring and there are plenty of walking trails along the Torrens River.

Inner city life provided us with a great contrast to where we live, and we will probably return to explore more of the cultural side of this city.
