What's on in Adelaide?

Adelaide is a hive of activity, with its café culture lifestyle and laid back nature. Rundle Street in Adelaide's east end includes a mix of historic pubs and family-run cafes and restaurants. Dine alfresco, morning, noon and night. Five minutes away, Norwood Parade is famously European influenced while Gouger Street, which is close to Chinatown and the Adelaide Central Market is crammed with Asian restaurants.

The city centre is surrounded by parklands and is a blend of historic buildings, wide streets, parklands, cafes and restaurants.
