Seasonal guides

No matter the season, Adelaide will leave you with memorable experiences. The city is home to many international events like Womadelaide, Santos Tour Down Under, and many more. 

Spring guide

Spring marks the start of longer days, and warmer temperatures. Unsurprisingly, it is the favourite season of many South Australians. The flora and fauna in the Adelaide Park Lands are beginning to awake from its winter slumber and the city will soon be filled with colours. This is the season to take long walks, have picnics in the park lands before heading into one of the many events of O-Festival.

Summer guide

It's hard to not love summer. Long sunny days, balmy evenings, and an atmosphere buzzing with colour, creativity and culture - Adelaide is alive at every turn. The city is energised with events and activities for everyone. There is no place to experience Adelaide especially during the holiday season. Experience a true Australian Christmas in the heart of the city, then spoil yourself with the many restaurants and bars in gorgeous laneways. Top it off with a free concert and fireworks show at the city's New Year's Eve party.

Autumn guide

It's hard not to love a South Australian autumn. As the local's second favourite season, autumn brings about cooler and cosier days. While the city is winding down after the hot summer activities, this is the time to take it easy while exploring the city. With the annual History Festival kicking off in May, as well as the bi-annual DreamBIG Children's Festival, it's the perfect time for an adventure.
