So much to see and do…

The city is sandwiched between white sandy beaches to the west and hills to the east.
Beaches offer calm, safe swimming waters and, even on the hottest day, you will always have plenty of opportunities to soak up the sun.

The hills are just 20 minutes to the east and a great place to discover a couple of South Australia’s great attractions in a beautiful 12454-ctree-studded landscape. Further afield are other wine growing regions such as the famous Barossa Valley and farmlands.

Between the hills and beaches are many other places loved by students and locals alike. Adelaide is one of Australia’s most affordable cities, so your student dollar will go a lot further during a day of shopping in the heart of the city at Rundle Mall or undercover at the Adelaide Central Market. Fancy a visit to Glenelg beach for a swim? How about visiting the giant Pandas at the Adelaide Zoo? There is so much to see and do in Adelaide – the city of students.
