Getting around Adelaide
Adelaide Airport is around 7km and a $15 cab fare (approx.) from the CBD. As well as taxi and Uber options for getting out and around in Adelaide, the public transport network of trains, trams and buses is easy to use - see www.adelaidemetro.com.au for details. Tickets can be purchased on board from drivers or vending machines. As a guide, single trip tickets cost from $2.50 and an unlimited daytrip ticket is $10.
The AAP conference venue will be the Lower Napier Building at the North Terrace campus of The University of Adelaide – see map reference L12. The venue is a short walk from many city café, restaurant and bar options.
The City-Glenelg tram is a popular option for visitors wanting to see something other than the CBD. The tram stops in front of the Adelaide Railway Station, runs along King William Street and then to Glenelg via the south-western suburbs of Adelaide. The trip takes around 30 minutes and terminates in Moseley Square at Glenelg, the site of the 1836 proclamation of the colony of South Australia and now a popular seaside resort. As well as the beach, Glenelg offers a wide range of shops, accommodation and cafes along and around Jetty Road.
North Adelaide is a short bus ride or 30-minute walk from the city – most of the buses running north along King William Street travel via O’Connell Street, which bisects the gracious, tree-lined streets of North Adelaide, worth a look around for its character homes, squares, pubs and other grand stone buildings. O’Connell Street itself has many pleasant shopping and dining offerings, and is a short walk from St Peters Cathedral and Adelaide Oval.
Also just on the fringes of the city and worth visiting for the shopping, character buildings, cafes and restaurants are Norwood Parade and King William Road, Hyde Park, both easily doable with public transport.
An independent visit to the Adelaide Hills is best done with a hire car, or a chauffeured vehicle - try Hughes Cars for prestige vehicles and knowledgeable drivers at your service.
There are several taxi ranks in the city, and two of the biggest taxi companies are Yellow Cabs (call 13 2227) and
Suburban Taxis (call 131 008).
Pre and post-conference tours
Adelaide is one of the world’s most walkable cities, and offers a range of cultural, shopping, gastronomic and sporting attractions within the CBD and environs. With a plethora of quirky and cosy bars showcasing SA’s fabulous wines and craft beers, the famous Central Market, and great cafes and restaurants, you’ll be spoiled for wining and dining choices. Outside the city, there are world-famous wine regions, unique coastal towns and the heritage, character and beautiful scenery of the Adelaide Hills to explore. Further afield, but still doable as a long day trip, Kangaroo Island awaits, combining fascinating history, abundant wildlife and a pristine natural environment.
Adelaide Sightseeing offers both private and public tours. The public tour options range in price from $56 for a half-day city highlights tour to $275 for the full-day return trip to Kangaroo Island’s Seal Bay.
