Geography and Climate of Adelaide
Since it was established in 1836, the opal capital of Australia has grown to around 1.3 million residents, spread between Adelaide and North Adelaide which are separated by the Torrens River.
The seasons in Australia are the opposite of those in the Northern Hemisphere, so keep that in mind when you’re packing! Due to its vast size, there are significant variations in climate from one end of the country to the other, but South Australia delivers on comfort with over 2,500 hours of sunshine annually, hot dry summers (December, January and February), and cool snow-free winters (June, July and August).
Things To Do in Adelaide
Devote some time to the North Terrace Cultural Precinct, home to a historic collection of buildings, galleries, museums, gardens, Parliament House, and the University of Adelaide.
The Adelaide Zoo offers you an opportunity to view many native species and is home to over 1800 animals. Just under an hour’s drive outside of Adelaide is the Monarto Zoo, which is an open range facility where you can observe a wide range of animals from a number of impressive platforms.
The River Torrens stretches from Henley Beach to the Adelaide Hills and is lined with pathways that are ideal for biking, walking, or running, and plenty of wide open spaces for picnics, sunning, or people-watching.
Sample some South Australian wine when you visit any one of over 60 wineries from famous regions such as Barossa, Coonawarra, McLaren Vale, or Clare Valley.
Stretch out any or all of the local beaches, each with its own unique vibe and appeal. Grange, West Beach, and Henley Beach are renowned for their picturesque sunrises and sunsets and nearby recreational sand dunes.
