Location & venue

Adelaide, South Australia


Adelaide is the “perfect host city” and is “ready to be uncorked”… so says Lonely Planet which named the South Australian capital as one of the top 10 must visit cities for 2014.

The city centre is surrounded by parklands and is a blend of historic buildings, wide streets, parklands, cafes and restaurants. Adelaide is easy to get around with rolling hills to the east and beaches to the west.

Adelaide has a diverse cultural mix that guarantees the food is sensational. 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.

Adelaide weather is moderate. Year-round big blue skies mean average winter temperatures of 16 degrees Celsius (°C) and 28°C in summer. Hot days can be real sizzlers and easily reach 40°C.
