A bit about Adelaide
Adelaide is as much fun as it is serious. It is as green as it is blue and it is as high in spirits as it is grounded. You will find yourself having the time of your life in Adelaide and the surrounding Fleurieu Peninsula region. If you want to party or relax, you can do both here. Are you a shopaholic? Then you can have your fill at the Rundle Mall or have a cup of coffee at one of the many cafes situated on East Rundle Street.
Some Interesting Day Tours
You absolutely must buy yourself some delicious chocolates from Haigh's Chocolates, as they are the only chocolate makers in Australia that still imports and roasts their own beans. They still manufacture using the old style machines and the packing style is old, too, which is very charming. As they say, old is gold, so why not indulge in some chocolate fantasies?
