Australia – Adelaide’s Food, Art and More

Australia-foodJust in time to wish our little commonwealth sister a Happy Australia Day (the country celebrated 226 years since their forefathers made first landing Down Under this past January 26).

Australia is a great big country with a lot to offer. May we suggest starting somewhere that travel trendsetters, including the experts here at Zoomer, and those at Lonely Planet, have put on their bucket list. Adelaide, South Australia’s capital, has been named a Top City to visit, and according to Lonely Planet, Adelaide is, “effortlessly chic – and like a perfectly cellared red, it’s ready to be uncorked and sampled.”

We love it for its delicious food scene, its excellent location as a gateway to great wine country offerings, local culture and arts focus.
