The historic German town in Adelaide. The best time of year to visit Hahndorf is in autumn, when the streets are filled with orange and red tree tops, the leaves falling to create a stunning path for you to walk on. This little town is beautiful all year round, and you will never be disappointed with the views and the delicious German food on offer.
8) Himeji Gardens
This little sanctuary is on South Terrace in the Adelaide CBD. This Japanese garden will give you a taste of a different culture and you’re sure to be left walking away with feelings of zen. If you’re lucky, you’ll even see some beautiful orange Koi fish swimming around.

Take a hike on some beautiful walking trails only 30 minutes out of the Adelaide CBD. See some of Adelaide’s natural landscape, with waterfalls and greenery everywhere you look. You won’t be disappointed.
10) Mount Osmond
Mount Osmond allows you to look out at the entirety of Adelaide. Only a 20 minute drive from the CBD, this is one of the places to visit in Adelaide that has so much to offer. The best time to go is either early in the morning for sunrise, when you can watch the city wake up, or at night time, when the city is illuminated completely.
