Car Rental Adelaide
Adelaide Accommodation

Great information about Adelaide that will enhance your holiday when you hire a car.

At some point you'll have to pull yourself away from behind the wheel of your hire car - no matter how comfy the seats may be! So park the rental and enjoy the Adelaide air.

If driving really isn't your thing though then there are plenty of organised tours you can join. There are a lot to choose from so don't feel like you will have to compromise on your choice of destinations. Alternatively it's possible to go off road altogether with one of the Murray River Riverboat tours. These usually include lunch and conveniently leave from Adelaide. We still believe that hiring a car in Adelaide will provide you with the ultimate convenience.

If you've always wanted to get as up close and personal with the wildlife as possible then a drive in your hire car to Baird Bay on the Eyre Peninsula might be the perfect scenario for you. Here you can have the opportunity to swim with sea lions and dolphins.

For those that prefer to appreciate their ocean critters from a distance Point Labbatt has nice views of sea lions playing in the shallows. If you're after some whale watching in your itinerary though be sure to plan your trip between June and October. Don't forget in between these months there are school holidays, and rental cars can become very scarce, so book well in advance.

Adelaide's hot zones for night life are the clubs, bars and pubs of Rundle Street in the east and Hindley Street and Light Square in the west. Gouger Street is Adelaide's key dining location. It's the gateway to the Adelaide Central Market and the bustling mall and food halls of Chinatown.

Wine lovers, of course, will have one destination clearly in mind: The Barossa Valley wine region. Many of the wineries are quite generous with their wine tasting sessions so if you're going to do this, booking a tour with a driver is highly recommended. Not only will your group not need to choose a designated driver for the hire car but there will be no chance of getting lost or difficulty locating quality wineries that cater to your tastes. On top of this, the locals know a thing or two about the region's history and are more than happy to tell you about it. 

Any trip to Adelaide is incomplete without a tram ride to Glenelg. This picturesque little seaside spot is popular with locals, tourists and of course the ever present sea gulls. A walk down the pier is a pleasant way to appreciate the view of the gorgeous coastline and there are plenty of bars, restaurants and fast food choices. Tourists will often hop on a tram to Glenelg from the city and take in the seaside: a tradition which has endured for many years which also saves you finding a car park for the rental car. An ice cream on the beach is refreshing and relaxing and so too is a seaside pint or two.

There are two major motoring events definitely worth seeing. So if you feel the need for speed, don't use your rental car, that's illegal. Head to The Clipsal 500 for V8 Supercar racing which is held on a modified version of the old Australian Grand Prix Formula One street circuit and is a must see. For the nostalgic there is also the Classic Adelaide, which is a rally of classic sporting vehicles, and is held in Adelaide and its surrounds.
