Adelaide - Leisure, Entertainment and Sports


Expatriates who love to eat will find a dazzling array of eating establishments in Adelaide. Smaller restaurants and cafes also do not open throughout the day. Many will open for lunch and dinner, and will not serve the entire menu for the in-between hours (meaning, it could be challenging to find a hot meal at 4pm). Tipping is not as widely practiced as it is in the US, but the locals will tip if they have found the service good. Some smaller establishments keep a tipping can by the cashier.

Sports, in particular Australian-rules football, dominate the weekends – AFL is followed religiously, as with the local football league, SANFL. Adelaide is home to the Adelaide Crows and the Port Adelaide Power. Both clubs have won a considerable number of premierships. Children and adults alike can join football clubs, or sports clubs. Cricket and soccer are also enjoyed by the locals.

In February-March every other year, Adelaide's arts scene comes alive with the Adelaide Festival of Arts, which was first celebrated 50 years ago in 1960. The Adelaide Festival of Arts attracts international and Australian performers alike, and the city brims with events. This festival enjoys a similar reputation as the Edinburgh Festival.

Living in Adelaide also opens up a number of unique travel experiences. Adelaide is the gateway to Australia's largest wine-growing region – the Barossa Valley is just an hour's drive away, and is home to the popular vineyards, such as Jacob Creek and Wolf Blass, just to name two. If it is an outback adventure you are after (think along the lines of the movie "Australia" starring Aussie Nicole Kidman) – Flinders Ranges is about a three hours' drive north from Adelaide. Visit the South Australia Tourism website for more ideas.
