How to Experience Adelaide in the Autumn
Autumn is one of the best times to visit Adelaide. The sunshine of summer still lingers, and the weather remains warm and pleasant. Throughout the city, the trees turn orange, golden, and red in a stunning display of colour, while the streets come to life with festivals, events, and performances.
Between March and May (when autumn falls in Adelaide), temperatures range from a comfortable 12.5 degrees to a high of 22 degrees, meaning it is not as sticky as summer, but still pleasantly warm.
As well as wandering the streets that are framed with golden trees at this time of year, there are plenty of other activities to get stuck into, and numerous Adelaide tours to help you take in everything the city has to offer.
Tasting Australia Festival
Between April and May, Adelaide comes to life in the biennial Tasting Australia Festival.
All the Events
In Adelaide, March is affectionately known as Mad March because there are so many events that take place throughout the month. This is when festivals bring parades, exhibitions, and local eats to the streets amid the golden glow of autumn. Numerous Adelaide city tours will take you around some of the events on offer, but you can expect hundreds of art exhibitions, plenty of foodie fairs, wine events, comic book conventions, and all sorts of musical offerings – from rock and roll, to jazz and contemporary gigs.
It is near on impossible to check out every event that takes place in March in Adelaide, but
Located just 20 minutes from the centre of Adelaide, the picturesque village of Stirling is a haven in autumn. The main street is lined with cute cafes and local restaurants, while the parks and open spaces sprawl out in a fine display of golden hues. It is the perfect place for a day trip at this time of year.
Mount Lofty Botanic Garden
Autumn is all about the foliage in Adelaide, and the best place to soak in all the colours is at the Mount Lofty Botanic Garden, where you can walk amongst golden trees and vibrant red bushes. Kick back and relax in this peaceful part of Adelaide.
