Car Rental Adelaide Airport

Adelaide is undoubtedly one of Australia’s most underrated cultural destinations. Rich with historic treasures, immersive food and wine experiences, and breathtaking natural landscapes, visitors are rarely left disappointed with the array of experiences this state capital has to offer.

Car hire opens many-a-cellar-door in Adelaide’s famous food & wine region

Settled amongst the backdrop of greater Adelaide’s picturesque Mount Lofty Ranges, a bursting food and wine scene awaits at Penfolds Magill Estate. Tourists and locals alike gather to experience this unique urban vineyard, unearthing stories from the once-hidden underground tunnels before resurfacing for a rustic wine tasting experience. Situated just 14 kilometres from Adelaide Airport, a hire car will get you to this heritage landmark in just over half an hour; making it the ideal experience for a weekend getaway, short trip, or day-venture. 

If your spirit for exploration still isn’t satisfied, venture beyond the urban vineyards to the infamous Barossa Valley. Located just one hour Northeast of Adelaide Airport, take the scenic route amongst the breathtaking countryside, heritage attractions, and charming villages - each with their own culinary delights - before arriving at a bustling green haven dotted with cellar doors. 

Originally settled by Silesian and Prussian farmers, the Barossa Valley encompasses a bounty of traditional food and wine experiences, where culinary experts, sommeliers, and farmers gather to showcase their impeccable creations to an all-too obliging audience. 

With a full stomach and a newfound appetite for the finer things in life, picture yourself wandering between the vines at Jacob’s Creek Estate, one of the most renowned wineries of the Barossa Valley. A barefoot luxury like this is a rare find on the global stage and proves to be one of Australia’s most sought-after experiences.

On a more practical note, it’s important that any visiting group allocates a designated driver. Although conveniently clustered, the wineries of the Barossa Valley are nothing short of vast, meaning a short drive is required to get from cellar door-to-door (unless you’re happy to brave the journey on slightly tipsy foot). A hire car is the most common form of transport and should be arranged prior to your scheduled visit to avoid missing out. 

Chin chin! 

Once in a lifetime wildlife encounters await those with the flexibility of a hire car

It’s no surprise that Australia is home to some of the world’s most striking wildlife. From the soft and cuddly to the more toothier types, visitors come from around the world to get up close and personal with Aussie fauna in their natural habitat. Perhaps more commonly associated with Australia’s tropical north, even the domestic tourist would be surprised to learn about the many wildlife encounters waiting for them in Adelaide and beyond. 

A wild heart finds its sanctuary in South Australia’s Eyre Peninsula for those willing to embark on the 6-hour drive from Adelaide Airport. Seize the opportunity to come face-to-face with a great white shark in an exhilarating cage dive, witness magnificent whales from the protected marine park, or swim with playful sea lion pups for a truly unforgettable experience. With limited options by way of public transport, car hire is recommended for your journey to the Eyre Peninsula. 

Something a little tamer awaits families at Adelaide Zoo. Located just a stone’s throw from the city and spanning over 8 hectares of stunning natural flora, Adelaide Zoo plays host to more than 3,000 animals, including over 250 different species of reptiles, mammals, birds and fish. Kids and adults alike can barely contain their excitement as they meander through the grounds, stopping in awe to witness the likes of the iconic red kangaroo, Australian sea lions, and Tasmanian devils. Local visitors are particularly enthralled by the more exotic species to Australia, such as the African lion, American alligator, Brazilian tapir, and pygmy hippos. Additionally, Adelaide Zoo is home to two giant pandas: Wang Wang and Fu Ni, who delight onlookers as they climb trees in their habitat, snack on bamboo, or lounge in the sun. Catch these jaw-dropping bears until late 2024. 

For those seeking a truly authentic cultural experience, look no further than South Australia and its colourful capital. Boasting the country’s best food and wine experiences and breathtaking natural wonders, explore to your heart’s content. All you need is a hire car, an empty camera roll, and a spirit for adventure.
