Adelaide the city of churches is a vibrant emerging city full of quirk and the unexpected. It's a changing city breaking from it's conservative past. We think it's on the rise and certainly the Lonely Planet thinks so in voting Adelaide as one of the top 10 cities to visit.
On a recent visit we were struck by the number of exciting new cafes and restaurants and the emergence of a strong coffee culture. Bar 9 can hold its own with any cafe in Australia. The beaches are amazing including Somerton, Glenelg and Semaphore with hidden secrets like Port Willunga. And the wine industry continues to evolve, including outstanding cellar doors and foodie regions such as the Barossa, McLaren Vale, not to mention the Coonawarra in the south east.
With a relatively new airport and the current major Adelaide Oval development set to see sporting action this summer, Adelaide is on the rise.
Adelaide’s quirky and unassuming facets are uncovered by pioneering winemaker Justin Lane in a stunning short film released by the South Australian Tourism Commission today.
The final in the new two-part series released to support the announcement of Adelaide as a ‘top 10 city’ to visit by Lonely Planet, Justin’s story is a complementary contrast to that of Adelaide born She Can DJ winner, Minx. Together the films showcase the multifaceted personality of Adelaide to prove visitors really can expect the unexpected.
