Adelaide - Australia - Destinations

Adelaide, the capital of Australian wine and culture

Adelaide is not one of the best known cities in Australia, and surely right now you are wondering where Adelaide is. Well, Adelaide belongs to South Australia (or South Australia, in English). If we imagine the map of Australia, it is the area that would occupy the middle part of southern Australia, bordering to the north with the Northern Territory, to the northwest with Queensland, to the east with New South Wales, to the southeast with Victoria, to the south with the Great Australian Bight and the Gulfs of Spencer and Saint Vincent (Indian Ocean), and to the west with Western Australia.

Adelaide is situated in the north of the Fleurieu Peninsula, on the Adelaide Plain between the Gulf of Saint Vincent and the Mount Lofty Range. An eight-hour drive from Melbourne (yes, the distances are huge), the city stretches 20km from the coast to the foothills, and 90km from Gawler in the north to Sellicks Beach in the south.

Adelaide is one of the driest cities in Australia. The average maximum temperature is 29°C in summer and 8°C to 16°C in winter, with constant rainy days during the cold season. Autumn temperatures range from 12.5°C to 22.4°C.

Adelaide’s climate is very pleasant and spring is the best season as wildlife flourishes and everything is awash with colour. In addition, the temperatures are very pleasant and it is a perfect time to go on excursions and discover the surroundings. The rainiest month is June.
