Save time and money on your next holiday by choosing to vacation in your own city. It is no secret that Australians are adventurous and love to travel, but the new trend is for people to book a holiday closer to home. For those who don’t like to plan months in advance or have little time for a break, a staycation is the perfect solution.
It is so easy to book a weekend getaway in your local city because you have the internet at your fingertips. Booking a hotel, restaurant or day trip is just a click away.
Adelaide is no exception. With the best of city life on your doorstep, make the most of the most of boutique inner city accommodation and explore this Festival City. Enjoy the best of Adelaide’s offerings from sporting events, theatre, luxury spas, restaurants and adventure all within walking distance.
Adelaide Oval Tours
Take a tour of the new modern sporting facility which is home to football and cricket games. Venture to backstage areas which are usually sealed off to the public on game days. For the more adventurous, climb to the roof for a birds-eye view of the city.
Pamper yourself in Luxury
Located in the heart of the shopping precinct is Universal Body Day Spa. Indulge in holistic spa treatments and relax your weary body with an aromatic body wrap, facial, or treat yourself to a full day spa package.
One for the whole family or gather a group of friends to test out you Sherlock Holmes investigation powers. Locked in a room for an hour you must solve a series of clues to a local South Australian crime in order to escape from the room. Celebrate your success with a drink back in the main room with your crime fighting sleuths.
Night at the Theatre
South Australians take the opportunity to make the most of the weekend and stay overnight to see a show. Especially this month when the Cabaret Festival opens in Adelaide. Don’t waste time in traffic, check into one of the many city hotels and make a weekend of it.
Laneway Small Bar
Adelaide is giving Melbourne a run for its money with new small bars popping up in the city’s laneways each month. Drop in for dinner before a show or a drink afterwards.
Soak up the festival atmosphere with your favourite drink and enjoy your minibreak away from home.
