It’s time to experience exceptional food and wine, museums and immersive wildlife experiences.

Attention passengers, this is your captain speaking. We're about to start our descent into Adelaide (once again thanks to the recommencement of Virgin Australia’s seasonal non-stop flights to Adelaide!). Please return to your seat, fasten your seatbelts and discover what you can do while on your visit.

Adelaide Central Market

One of the largest undercover fresh produce markets in the Southern Hemisphere, the Adelaide Central Market offers a unique culinary experience. Featuring fresh food to purchase (and take on your South Australian travels) and some of Adelaide’s most popular cafes and eateries, the market is open Tuesday to Saturday for your quintessential Adelaide experience.


It’s safe to say that while Tassie does amazing wine, we really learned the craft from our buddies in SA!

With more than 200 cellar doors to explore, we suggest unearthing local picks: Bird in Hand, Mount Lofty Ranges Vineyard, The Lane Vineyard, Down The Rabbit Hole and Alpha Box and Dice.

Climb the roof of Adelaide Oval

An unparalleled adventure for thrillseekers, RoofClimb gives visitors the opportunity to climb across Adelaide Oval’s iconic roofline. At the top, you’ll enjoy 360-degree picturesque views of Adelaide and beyond. It’s an experience like no other.

Adelaide Zoo

Located in the heart of Adelaide lies an oasis that is home to 2,500 exotic animals from across the globe including the only giant pandas in Australia!

This family-friendly activity gives you the chance to hand-feed animals, watch pandas’ bath time and learn all about your favourite animals. As the oldest zoo in Australia, the team is passionate about conservation and working to protect species.

Adelaide Botanical Gardens

Take time out of your day to stroll through the beautiful Botanical Gardens. Enjoy 50 hectares of magnificently maintained gardens, tropical sanctuaries, blooming rose gardens and stunning architecture. Once you’ve finished exploring, quench your thirst at the National Wine Centre of Australia (which happens to be conveniently next door).

Art Gallery and museums

With a grand entrance to match its 45,000 showstopping works, the Art Gallery of South Australia is the perfect place to start your cultural hop through the North Terrace boulevard.
Once finished, head next door to the South Australian Museum for a history lesson on fossils, Aboriginal artefacts and Antarctic expeditions. Plus, if you’re up for the challenge, take on the digital adventure game that asks you to solve puzzles to unlock the secrets of the museum.

Welcome to Adelaide, where the local time is 3:03pm. Please remain in your seat until the captain switches off the seatbelt sign. Thank you for choosing to fly with us today and we hope you enjoy your Adelaide adventure.
