Hire a car in Adelaide
A city in bloom, Adelaide is emerging from its quiet country town shell and showing off its colours.
In contrast to Sydney and Melbourne, this South Australian city boasts an airy feel and easy lifestyle. Its innovative food scene (and great wines) display the city’s new energy and make it a great place linger while savouring Australia’s unique flavours. Cut in half by the River Torrens and surrounded by lush greenery, Adelaide is not a city to be rushed.
Driving along the city’s wide roads to the nearby Adelaide Hills and world-class vineyards is all part of the local experience. But if you’re more interested in catching waves, a road trip down the coast will bring you to some adrenaline pumping surf beaches.
Sights to see
Named after queen consort to short-lived King William IV of Great Britain, Adelaide, capital of South Australia, is a cosmopolitan, coastal city, steeped in the colonial ambience of yesteryear. For the convenience and facility to explore this charming metropolis, renting a car is the best option. Car rental in Adelaide has never been simpler with easyCar thanks to our city and airport car rental facilities.
Things to do
Rundle Street is Adelaide’s upmarket shopping, dining and nightlife area. Shoppers and foodies alike can delight in the vast array of gourmet products available at the various weekend markets. Check out the Adelaide Oval, Aussie rules football, rugby and cricket ground - now also used for stadium gigs - for your fix of entertainment and sport; tours are available Monday to Saturday. Celebrate indigenous art at the Art Gallery of South Australia or learn about Natural History at the South Australian Museum. Adelaide’s strong performing arts tradition is put on show every March at Adelaide Festival, one of the most renowned of its kind in the world.
In terms of natural pursuits, Adelaide Zoo, the second oldest in Australia, is a great place to start. Housing 300 native and exotic species, it is quintessential family fun. Take a 15-minute drive to the suburb of Glenelg for access to an idyllic beach that also offers a host of watersport options. The nearby Beachouse amusement park is perfect for the kids. Take your rental car 20 minutes east of downtown Adelaide and you’ll find Mount Lofty - the highest point in the Mount Lofty Ranges at an impressive 727 meters, offers incredible panoramic views over Adelaide, a restaurant, and a gift shop.
An hour’s drive northeast of downtown Adelaide lies Barossa Valley, one of Australia’s, and arguably the world’s, most prolific wine-producing regions. There are a plethora of wineries offering tastings, along with outstanding cuisine at numerous restaurants. There is a strong German influence on the area, so be prepared to sample heavy cream desserts, bratwurst, and a lot of stone Lutheran churches!
Take your rental car, the 3 and half hour’s journey north to Flinders Ranges, the largest mountain range in South Australia, which has been occupied by the Adnyamathanha peoples for thousands of years. They can guide you around this dramatic terrain to some of the most expansive, unspoiled and breathtaking views on the planet. Other activities include camping, stargazing and riding the Pichi Richi railway on restored steam and diesel locomotives from Port Augusta to Quorn.
