Australia Road Trip, Day Six – exploring Adelaide.

Day six on our Australia Road trip to Uluru/Ayers Rock…


Staying in a safer feeling campsite meant I finally got a decent nights sleep, and both Tom and I woke up early ready to start a day exploring Adelaide City.

We headed into the city and decided to park near the Botanical Gardens to enjoy a few hours walking around. The gardens are very impressive, and there’s plenty to see and do in the gardens. They definitely compete quite highly with Melbournes Botanical Gardens.

After a few hours working up an appetite, we headed into the heart of the city to an Indian cafe named North Indian Cuisine. Australia’s cities are great for little Indian cafes which do pretty cheap lunchtime deals. The one we got today was $15/£8.50 for three curries, loads of rice, a garlic naan and a drink – the food was also incredible!

With our ‘hanger’ all sorted out, Tom and I headed for the cities museum and art gallery – which are free! That’s the great thing about a slightly smaller city, things are slightly cheaper or even free! We started off with the South Australia Museum and then headed to the Art Gallery of South Australia. The art gallery was probably our favourite out of the both, with loads of cool exhibitions.

To finish the day off Tom and I headed for a little coastal walk, which backs on to our campsite.

We are leaving Adelaide on Wednesday, and I think we will both definitely be sad to leave – there’s so much to see here, and we could easily spend a few weeks exploring. I could even see us doing our second-year visa in Adelaide (if we actually manage to do farm work!) – it’s a great city, which is slightly quieter but still has loads of offer.
