Adelaide events

In 2014 Lonely Planet named Adelaide as one of the top 10 must visit cities on the planet claiming it was a 'perfect host city'. The city centre is surrounded by parklands and is a blend of historic buildings, wide streets, parklands, cafes and restaurants. Adelaide is easy to get around with rolling hills to the east and beaches to the west.

Adelaide loves to party - especially during Mad March which is right in the middle of event season and when the weather in Adelaide is at its best. Adelaide, according to Lonely Planet's Best in Travel 2014, has "transformed itself into the perfect host city....(with) some of Australia’s most popular sporting and arts events". They are of course the Adelaide Festival, Adelaide Fringe Festival and WOMADelaide, just to name a few. Sports fans will love the award-winning Santos Tour Down Under and Clipsal 500 V8 car race.

Here are just some of the exciting events held each year in Adelaide:
