Travellers arriving in Adelaide by air fly into Adelaide Airport, located next to West Beach and approximately 4 miles from the centre of the city. The airport has a single terminal that handles international and domestic flights, so navigating the airport is relatively straightforward. Over 10 airlines fly into this airport, including Virgin Australia, Qantas, Jetstar Airways, Cathay Pacific, and Air New Zealand.
You can get from the airport to your accommodation by bus, shuttle, taxi, or car hire. The public bus runs every 15 minutes from the airport to the city centre at a cost of approximately $4.60 during peak hours and $2.80 during off-peak hours per person.

Adelaide has a warm Mediterranean climate, so temperatures in the summer and winter deviate by only about 15 degrees. The summer months of November through January receive little rainfall and experience high temperatures from 25ÂºC to 30ÂºC. Most of the rain that Adelaide receives falls in the winter months of June through August. Low temperatures in the winter hover around 10ÂºC. The mild weather means that there is never a bad season to visit Adelaide, but the city is particularly popular in the autumn months of February and March, when the renowned Adelaide Festival of Arts and Fringe Festival are held.
One of the most exciting months to visit Adelaide is during â€˜Mad Marchâ€™, when the city hosts the Adelaide Fringe Festival, the Clipsal 500 car race, the Adelaide Festival of Arts, WOMADdelaide, the Adelaide Cup, and the Future Music Festival. Other popular Adelaide attractions include the Adelaide Zoo-which houses one of the few exhibits of giant pandas in the world-the Bicentennial Conservatory, Cleland Conservation Park, and the Art Gallery of South Australia. Popular areas to visit include Glenelg for its restaurants and cafÃ©s, Adelaide Hills for its spectacular views of the Adelaide Plains, and Hahndorf for its German shops.
