Adelaide Campervan Hire

Remarkable Rocks Kangaroo Island by

It may not have the flashy reputation of Sydney or the well-worn cultural associations of Melbourne, but Adelaide more than holds its own against its fellow State Capitals.
The sixth-largest city in Australia, Adelaide's well-planned layout, leafy streets and proximity to the country's best wineries makes it a charming, and easy, city to explore.

Adelaide is gaining quite a name for itself as a cultural and epicurean playground, and its elegant architecture, fine-dining restaurants and thriving nightlife are certainly suggestive of a city that enjoys the finer things in life. Many major concerts and sporting events are also held here and the Adelaide Fringe Festival is the cultural highlight of the year – drawing visitors from around the world and rivalling the Edinburgh Festival for size and popularity.

Those wanting to explore the greater South Australia region will be happy to know that Adelaide provides an ideal base for RV travel. Just to the east of the city lies the lush Mt Lofty Ranges, which offer excellent bush walking and unique scenery. The Mt Lofty Ranges are also home to Lenswood and Piccadilly Valley - two of the largest geographical wine regions in Australia. Adelaide is surrounded by fertile wine country and the vineyards of the Barossa and Clare Valleys and McLaren Vale (all famous for producing some of the world's best Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling) are all within day-trip distance of the city.

From dreamy hillside to the thrilling coastline; the Fleurieue Peninsula is an easy drive from Adelaide and presents a playground of secluded beaches, stunning scenery, adventure tours and unspoiled nature. Its underwater shipwrecks and marine life make it ideal for diving and snorkelling and surf lessons are also a popular option for those visiting here. Lastly, no trip to South Australia would be complete without a visit to the impossibly beautiful Kangaroo Island. An animal lover's paradise, the island can be accessed by ferry and is home to a substantial population of native Australian wildlife, as well as soaring cliffs, dense forest, towering sand dunes, wetlands and seemingly endless stretches of white sand shores.
