Map of Adelaide, Australia
We had visited this city previously, so on this visit, we took a trip to Hanhdorf township which is a German settlement that dates back to 1839. On our way there, we stopped at a beautiful lookout spot, Mount Lofty, which had beautiful views of the city. The main street of Hanhdorf is lined with many boutiques, cafes and restaurants. A great place to shop and just stroll. We stopped in at a bakery on a side street that sold large German pretzels. We took ours outside and enjoyed them at one of the outside tables & chairs. A few establishments had live German music playing. It is a great place to enjoy a wonderful German lunch. Browse the lovely jewelry, pottery, art & leather goods stores as well as souvenir shops and more.

We booked the McLaren Vale experience for my wife and I in Adelaide. I was told by the guest services staff that I would have to pay for an adult ticket of $189 for my child who is 4 years old. I was not presented with an alternative but I wanted to take my wife on the highly recommended tour. I paid the fee of $189 for my son who is four years old to accompany us on the tour. The tour was great for two adults but NOTHING was offered for kids. So I did not understand why I was told I had to pay an adult fee of $189 for my son during a wine experience. It is not like I received an extra wine glass for tasting during the tour. I feel I was mislead when booking the excursion and was forced to pay for an adult ticket with no consideration of the type of excursion I was booking.

Plenty of taxis available but $70 AUS each way into Adelaide can be expensive. The train is easy and if your a senior with a concession card, it can be free!
Didn’t spend long in this port. Went with my family to meet some friends for lunch and a walk around the beach. Have visited Adelaide before. It’s a very pretty city and very walkable. You can take the tram in, it’s a nice ride.
I'm from South Australia so of course I love Adelaide. Only excursion was to travel three hours home 🙂
