It’s quite true that, while discussing tourism it’s really difficult to ignore Australia, which offers some of the best things in the world to travelers such as National Parks rich with rare wildlife, heavenly Islands, captivating beaches, beautiful mountains, and vast deserts etc. And the fact remains that people who are interested in traveling, love to explore only such places.
But for real adventure and making your trip memorable it’s good to travel across the country on a self-drive motorhome, which can be booked online much before you actually land up in the country. Considering the fact that with the passage of time motorhome rental companies have mushroomed across the world including Australia, it has become really simple and convenient for travelers to book their vehicle in advance. Once you have your motorhome with you, all you want is to hit the roads and discover new places.
Now let’s discuss some of the places that you can explore in Adelaide, which is located in South Australia. Though Adelaide is famous across the world for being the wine capital of the country, that doesn't mean it has nothing else to offer its tourists.
Places to Explore in Adelaide
Adelaide Oval, which has a seating capacity of approximately 53,000, is nothing but a highly distinguished venue for hosting world-class sporting as well as entertainment events. This iconic stadium began functioning after the emergence of the South Australian Cricket Association. Yes, you read it correctly, Adelaide Oval came into the picture only in 1871, after the development of the South Australian Cricket Association. However, the stadium started to become popular only after it hosted a test cricket match between Australia and England in the year 1884.
