With a flourishing landscape and delectable produce, it’s easy to see why Adelaide was mentioned in Lonely Planet’s ‘2017 Top Travel Regions’, and made it onto Vogue’s list of ‘10 Unexpected Places to Travel this Summer’. Here are 3 unique ways you can explore this vibrant city today.
- Connect with nature
CABN is a revolutionary type of getaway experience in the Adelaide Hills, one of the most beautiful regions in SA. Instead of traditional camping, you can forgo the swag in exchange for a tiny self-contained house (named Jude) containing everything you need for a minimalistic, off-the-grid experience; this includes a king size bed, a fully-stocked kitchen and classic board games.
The exact location is kept under wraps, but is only a short distance from hiking tracks, a conservation park, acres of bushland, and plenty of famous wineries. As there is no Wi-Fi, you can snap a quick pic of the adorable setup before switching off from technology and connecting with nature.
- Pedal through the city
The HandleBar Adelaide provides a fun and unforgettable way for people to experience the city and its produce through Australia’s first 100% pedal-powered mobile bar. The 2-hour ride operates through rain or shine, and you’ll get to enjoy the view with some great company, to the sound of your own tunes and sipping on award-winning beer, wine and cider from local regions like the Barossa and McLaren Vale.
The tour makes 2 pub stops which allow you to stretch your legs, and concludes at the picturesque Victoria Square, which provides plenty of photo opportunities and is only walking distance from a good feed; we recommend checking out Peel St, Leigh St and Ebenezer Place for some quality eateries.
- Explore without limits
The amazing thing about Adelaide is there is so much to see outside of the city and many suburban areas, particularly the beachside regions, are worth the visit. Ofo is the world’s first and largest station-free bike sharing company and has recently launched in Adelaide, making it easier for people to explore these nooks and crannies in an affordable, sustainable and eco-friendly way.
It’s much like Uber but with bright yellow bikes with ‘unpoppable airless tyres’, and you can access them at any time through using the app to locate and unlock the closest one to you so you can explore Adelaide without limits.
