Formerly called Tarntanya or the Red Kangaroo Palace by the local Kaurna community, Adelaide is today a cosmopolitan city that celebrates its multicultural identity with local festivals, art exhibitions, and music concerts. A dream destination for wine connoisseurs, the region is responsible for more than half of the country’s wine exports. Try the artisan cheeses, smoked meats and seafood at the 150-year-old Adelaide Central Market, and don’t miss the trendy bars and eateries hidden amid the side streets and laneways of the inner city. Take a tram ride to Glenelg, a busy beachside neighborhood with cafés and white sand beaches. Stroll down the harbor front or the city’s North Terrace, which houses Adelaide’s museums, art galleries, and cultural centers. Visit the city during the lovely Credit Union Christmas Pageant or the multi-arts festival, the Adelaide Fringe. The latter is an annual celebration of international arts that includes film screenings.
