Yes I have been several times, though it is not one of my favourite cities.
I have not now been for about 20 years however so perhaps it has improved.
It is not somewhere that I would ever rush back to as I did not think there was a lot to offer the tourist. Sorry to those who live there!!

All I can think of is grapes and churches . . . and I know it is very equestrian over there.

Oh! my Grapes and Churches sounds like heaven to me! :)

Yes. My parents took me there when I was 10 for a family holiday. I think it is high time I went back !!! My parents have always tried to show me as much of Australia, my own country, as they possibly could. It is so important ( to me ) to see as much of Australia as I can, before going overseas. I feel as if I have done that now, so can explore overseas now if I wish. I cant remember what I thought if Adelaide, but it did seem to be like a country town compared to Melbourne. I'm sure that it has changed markedly since then, and deserves another look !!!
I have never been and I think I really should go. In fact, I think I should visit each capital city one day. I have been to Sydney and Melbourne multiple times and that's all.
by Rice
Don't come to Sydney without letting me know!! we have to catch up :)
by jonaja
Sadly no.....I have been told it is just lovely!
So one day, I am hoping too :)
Thank you. My nephew fell asleep while driving from Adelaide to Port Augusta, after work! His g/f asked him not to drive up until the following day, but he said: "Oh, I'll be alright' The accident happened at Port Pierie, on a very 'boring' straight road. He was 20 & 3 weeks old. His funeral was during the school holidays, but I think the whole school turned out for him! )He'd gone to a boarding school in Adelaide because he lived in Central Australia, S.A, near the Simpson dessert.)

That is so dreadful miro_
and he was very young :(

by jonaja
In '99 we were there for a nephews funeral, then again in '14 for my brother's funeral. Since then, we have called in twice, each time on a 34 night cruise, each way around Australia. (We've been to every state of Australia.)
by Miro
Wrong! Those 2 cruises I mentioned, were in 2012 & '2014! (2 months after my brother died in the rally car accident.)
by Miro
Oh! miro_ that is so awful I am sorry :(
by jonaja
Oh Miro! What tragically sad memories of a beautiful city. My heart goes out to you. It is so sad when we lose someone so young, as your nephew had been. The funeral with all the school colleagues attending, must have been a huge comfort to you, as well as a sign of the immense respect they all felt for your nephew. Then to lose your brother as well, so much more recently, must have been just awful for you. My heart goes out to you and I hope that you can one day go to The City Of Churches with only wonderful memories to be made.

Ooooh! Adelaide Zoo!!! I LOVE it. I took my son there when he was about 2, which is just over 30 years ago! But I have the fondest memories of the entire place. I just love its location right in the city! I still have my book which I bought as a reminder of that visit. At least you still do have some loved ones living there, so any visit will be a pleasant one in so many ways. Like you, I adore galleries and museums immensely, and these are the places I love to make the most of when I go anywhere! I do hope that when you do return you shall have a delightful time filled with NEW memories of the zoo and other places you may see.

I have never been to South Australia.

I went to Adelaide in the late 80's. It was a mystery weekend that one of the airlines offered at the time. A three day weekend cost $199 and gave return airfares and accommodation. Great deal at the time. I think we were given an option to upgrade for another $20 which we took. As a tennis tournament was on we saw several tennis stars at our hotel.
I liked Adelaide very much. I thought the climate was pleasant and I loved the old buildings and the trams.
I must go again sometime soon.
I have been to Adelaide on many occasions.My stepmother is from The City of Churches, and my ex-husband is also from this beautiful city! I loved the historical aspects of the region, and also enjoyed the many antique shops and markets which were filled with fabulous treasures. The thing which I really hate about Adelaide is the quality(or LACK of!!) of the water there!!! It is totally undrinkable!!!
Summer there can be unbearably hot and with the recent Power problems which the whole state of South Australia has been experiencing, I doubt that I would like to live there. I would certainly visit again in the springtime though!!
Thank you Jules. I have my sister-in-law living in Adelaide now, so I hope to return to Adelaide 1 day. I haven't been to the Zoo there yet, so I would like to see that. I enjoyed visited the art gallery & museum on 1 of those 2 cruise days.

When we first came to Australia in 1960 we lived in Adelaide for 1 year. It is a City of churches and rather wide streets. Have been back a few times but that is also many years ago.
I live in South Australia. Love our more laid back way of life here. Not interested in the rush around of Sydney and Melbourne (and yes... I've been to both places). It depends on what you're looking for but if you've done your homework before your visit and have no preconceived ideas as to what you expect but just embrace the experience, you'll do fine.

I've been to all the capitals except for Darwin. Lately it's been for 2 of my grandchildren competing at National level in the throws. Their mother (my youngest) has set herself the pleasurable task of visiting all the zoos, which we have done, when we've had the time away from the track. We stayed in a lovely hotel with huge comfy beds near the trams. We have been so lucky with the locals volunteering information (in all States) on how and where to find the free transport, good eating places and places we should visit. The last time I was in South Australia was 44 years ago when I drove mum and my then 4 year old daughter there to partake in wine experiences and the lovely German food of course. Would I go back again? Yes, because my grandson had to stay with the NSW team at a separate location and expressed the desire to go back so he could also enjoy what we experienced without him.
Born and raised here! :)
Never lived anywhere else either.
Since you live in S.A., Valadhiel, have you visited, Alice Springs, Coober Pedy, Port Augusta, Point Pierie or Oodnadatta? (I've only visited Coober Pedy & Oodnadatta.)
by Miro
Yes I have been all my life, I live here! if you haven't been for 20 years maybe it's time for a re-visit, we have beautiful parks and beaches, and the markets are expanding, although our weather can get a bit too hot, well that's not our fault obviously!
yes
