What’s the best way to get around Adelaide?

Adelaide doesn't have the sprawl of Sydney, which makes getting around the South Australian capital a bit easier. That means after you travel from Sydney to Adelaide flights, you won't have to worry much about how you're going to get from Point A to Points B, C, D and beyond.

Public transportation is run by Adelaide Metro, which presides over the city's bus, train and tram systems. If you're going to be using public transportation often during your stay, the most convenient option might be to pick up a rechargeable metroCARD online. Alternatively, you can buy single MetroTickets on board trains and trams and at many bus interchanges, though you cannot purchase tickets aboard buses themselves. Also, remember that the entire Metro system is cashless, so you'll have to use a credit card to buy tickets or a metroCARD after you fly from Sydney to Adelaide.

All that being said, Adelaide is known for its flatness, making it an excellent landscape for walkers, joggers and cyclists. Consider travelling by foot if you have the time and the weather is nice.


What To Do In Adelaide

Kids Activities

There are several different places where you and the little ones can get a front-row look at, and play with, some wonderful wildlife. Head into the gorgeous Adelaide Hills, just 20 minutes' drive from the city centre, to visit Cleland Wildlife Park. There you'll be able to see wombats, koalas, dingoes and more. As opposed to a traditional zoo, many of the animals roam freely in their natural habitats within the grounds.

Even closer to the Adelaide CBD is the Adelaide Zoo. Just a 15-minute walk from the heart of the city, the zoo is home to more than 2,500 animals and has been welcoming visitors for more than 130 years. The tykes will love seeing everything from alligators to meerkats to the quokkas and tigers that call the second-oldest zoo in Australia home.

Go swim

If you've spent any time in Sydney, you certainly won't be a stranger to its great beaches. But don't forget to pack your swimmers and some sunscreen when you book your cheap flights from Sydney to Adelaide. That's because there are several great beaches within a short trip of the city. Glenelg Beach is about a 20-minute drive or 50-minute tram ride from the CBD. Less than a 15-minute drive up the coast is Henley Beach, while Semaphore Beach is another 15-minute drive north.

Go climbing

You won't have to leave the city limits to find outdoor fun and adventure once you fly from Sydney to Adelaide. TreeClimb gives new meaning to the term urban jungle, with a range of treetop courses and zip lines available for the kids to strap in and explore. As an added bonus, there's education material positioned around the park so children can learn more about the natural habitats in and around Adelaide.
