First stop is the Adelaide Central Market in the heart of the city. This historic market has been a mecca of food in Adelaide for over 140 years and still today retains its unique charm and character. Renowned for its multicultural flavours and local produce it has become one of Adelaide’s must do attractions. Walking around the market is a great way to immerse yourself in the local culture whilst indulging your senses with some of the finest produce available in South Australia. Note: On days when the central market is closed (Sunday/Monday), we extend the city highlights tour.
Next up is a leisurely drive along Adelaide’s bustling streets, precincts and surrounding park lands. Crossing the River Torrens, we drive along the beautifully redeveloped Riverbank Precinct, past the world famous Adelaide Oval and then travel out of the city on Adelaide’s cultural boulevard ‘North Terrace’. Here you will witness many of Adelaide’s most important landmarks and historic buildings.
At the summit, fantastic panoramic views over the Adelaide Plains and Gulf St. Vincent await. Originally spotted from Kangaroo Island in 1802 by Captain Matthew Flinders, Mount Lofty Summit is the highest point in the Adelaide Hills at 710m. Depending upon the weather you may even gaze upon your ship in the very distant harbour.
Our major stop for the day is at Cleland Wildlife Park where you will have plenty of time to get close to Australia’s most unique wildlife. Whilst immersing yourself in the wonders of this natural bush environment, you can engage with impressive kangaroos, shy wallabies and cute inquisitive potoroos. The Koala close-up experience is a definite must do, along with seeing the Emu’s, Dingoes, Wombats, and native bird life. Cleland is also your stop for a delicious picnic lunch.
A visit to Adelaide will not be complete without tasting some of the region’s local wines! Just 20minutes from the heart of the city and nestled in the foothills of the beautiful Adelaide Hills, we stop at the world renowned Penfolds Winery. Established in 1844, Penfolds is one of South Australia’s oldest and most famous wineries, offering views across its iconic city vineyards and historic buildings. In the state of the
art cellar door, you will experience personalised tasting of their internationally acclaimed wines.
To end an amazing day on a perfect note, you will enjoy a scenic drive along the coastal foreshore of Adelaide back to your ship at Outer Harbor, in time for departure.
