I recently visited South Australia for the first time with a trip to Adelaide! Luckily, my friend James (co-founder of Black and White Gourmet) is from Adelaide and also in the travel business. He organised the entire trip for us which I am so grateful for!

We based ourselves in the city and did a couple of wine tours from there. We stayed in Hotel Grand Chancellor which was so central, comfortable rooms with outdoor pool and gym. The food in Adelaide completely blew me away. From their amazing markets, gourmet cheeses in the vineyard areas, to the most amazing restaurants.

Below are some reviews of my favourite things to do in Adelaide!

Barossa Valley Wine Tour

This was my favourite of the tours we did. We stopped at some amazing local vineyards including the famous Peter Lehmanns. Here we had a gourmet cheese board for lunch over a bottle of white.


Adelaide Hills Wine Tour

This tour was a lot smaller and went to more boutique vineyards. The highlight of this trip is stopping off at a quant little german town called Hahndorf. With big leafy streets and gorgeous cafes and restuarants, it is perfect for an afternoon wander. Definitely stop into the cheese shop for some tastings!


Bistro Dom

We went here on our second night and I was blown away. The service was impeccable, food was delicious and mostly local & foraged. For the full review, click here.


Restaurant Orana

Orana has got to be one of the best restaurants I have ever experienced. We went for the lunch tasting menu and it was incredible. So many unusual flavours and textures, get the full review here.

Stamford Grand High Tea

The Stamford Grand is located on the water at Glenelg, the quite beach town about 20 minutes outside Adelaide. We had the South Australia High Tea and it was a lovely way to spend the afternoon!



This Italian restaurant was very homely and warming. The type of place you go and feel full and comforted. Home made pastas, beautiful seafood dishes, it was hard to just pick one thing from the menu! I would highly recommend.

Adelaide Markets

If you are anything like me, then you love markets! This one was so lovely, stalls and stall of fresh produce, cheeses, food stalls, it has such a lovely ambience. There is a great Italin deli and restaurant there called Lucias. Very reasonable, no bookings, pull up a plastic seat outside and dig into and crusty roll with bocconcini, tomato & basil or a lasagne. Note: the pizzas are not the best, so make sure to go with the pastas or sandwiches and pastries from the deli!
