Explore Things to Do and See in Adelaide

This city contains a number of sights you will want to see and experience. One of those is definitely the Central Market where you will discover, taste and smell so many wonderful products. Your senses will be overloaded by all the possibilities and all the vendors who want to attract your business. Begun officially in 1870 this Market has been supplying Adelaide with an abundance of all sorts for a very long time.

The Botanic Garden of Adelaide is a stunningly beautiful place to visit. With your Budget car rental you will easily be able to get to this amazing garden, and if you didn’t rent one earlier there is a Budget location nearby. Within the Botanic Garden are many different types of plants and gardens for you to see including the fantastic Bicentennial Conservatory which contains a tropical forest.

Adelaide is blessed to be very close to an amazing area which produces some of the best wines in the world. The Barossa Valley is only an hour’s drive away from the city in your Budget car hire, giving you no excuse not to go and join in on a small group food and wine tour of this historic and lovely area.  Of course you are welcome to tour it on your own, but be sure to sample some of the European influenced dining in the area due to the German settlers from long ago.

Of course you can’t leave the area without going to the beach, so head over to Glenelg, a beautiful seaside resort town only a short drive from Adelaide. Here you can enjoy the gorgeous beaches and some relaxed dining while taking in some breathtaking sunsets. This is also home to numerous dolphins and seals, giving you the ability observe some of the best nature has to offer.
