Spare room Adelaide

Find a spare room in Adelaide

Adelaide is the capital of South Australia and Australia’s 5th biggest city, yet it never seems to receive the attention of the other state capitals. With more than 75% of the state’s population living in the city, it is an incredibly populous and centralised city. Unlike most Australian cities, it has no convict history and it has a historical tradition of tolerance and progressive thought. The ‘City of Churches’ has a Mediterranean climate and few extremes of temperature. Many students study at the city’s universities, notably including University of Adelaide, Flinders University and the University of South Australia, including nearly 20,000 international students. Choosing to rent a spare room in a private home in Adelaide will offer you a cheaper accommodation option and will free up some cash to explore everything Adelaide has to offer.

What are the highlights of Adelaide?

Adelaide is rated in the top 5 most liveable cities in the world, so where to start? To make its fantastic weather worthwhile, Adelaide has amazing beaches to chill, swim or surf your way through the weekend. You can benefit from Adelaide’s laid back feel by taking a stroll through the parks, squares or bushland in and around the city. The Adelaide Botanic Gardens are the perfect spot for a picnic after university is over! For a spot of culture and history, head to the Art Gallery of South Australia or the South Australian Museum (it’s free). Adelaide is a UNESCO designated ‘City of Music’, having produced some iconic artists such as Sia and hosting festivals like WOMADelaide and the Adelaide Festival of Arts. You can also travel outside the city to the wine valley to see where the good stuff is grown, or hop over to Kangaroo Island to see the protected nature reserves.

Adelaide is home to some excellent drinking and dining experiences. Adelaide Central Market is a haven for succulent, fresh ingredients; fruit, veg, cheese, meat, seafood… You can also get delicious coffees at Fair Espresso or go on a walking tour of the market for a chance to get some great samples. Check out the Flying Fig Deli for a taste of Jewish cuisine (their breakfasts are particularly recommended) or head to Chinatown for your pick of great tasting Asian eateries at a reasonable prices. La Rambla is a great new bar and restaurant with a love for everything Spanish and a classic South Australian feel, while Bank Street Social is South Australian at its heart – the pizzas are named after food regions in the state and exclusively topped with the state’s produce. In such a musical city, the clubbing scene is diverse and vibrant. Zhivago is one of the best grungey small nightclubs, while Swish Bar will give you a cooler, more aesthetic night out (it’s also free entry on Fridays and full of special offers). Red Square is smack bang in the centre of the city and the clubbing scene!
