Spring in Adelaide is a beautiful time of year. The winter starts thawing out and new life, new colour, and new beginnings finally break through. Temperatures begin to rise to between 11 and 22 degrees Celsius, while rainfall dissipates. You’ll still get to enjoy the cooler evenings, though, before the hot sticky summer comes through.
This time of year is perfect for taking an Adelaide city tour, enjoying the new lease of life, and soaking up the warmer temperatures by sitting outside cafes instead of huddled inside.
It is also a great time to take a winery and valley tour. Rain is pretty non-existent, while the days are usually sunny and pleasantly warm, making it perfect for Adelaide tours to some of the stunning surrounding hotspots.
Spring is also a fabulous time for the natural world. Flowers starting blossoming
Head down to Kangaroo Island to enjoy Australia’s wildlife at its finest. Here, you can wander along beaches filled with colonies of seals, look out for koalas nestled high in the treetops, and get up close and personal with the Island’s namesake – kangaroos. Keep your eyes peeled for some of the eclectic selection of colourful bird species, too.
Sure, you might not be able to swim in the cool water at this time of year, but there are plenty of other things to do on this paradise island.
Spring is the time of festivals in Adelaide, bringing together the community for huge foodie feasts and fashionable affairs.
For creatives, the Festival of Art and Design takes place at the start of October, offering a fun program of design talks, art exhibitions, and performances for all
You’ll also be party to the Adelaide Fashion Festival and the Adelaide Film Festival if you’re visiting in October, which both offer different creative perspectives into the city.
Foodie lovers will enjoy the selection of feasts on offer. AsiaFest brings Asian food and culture to the streets of Adelaide, while CheeseFest brings, you guessed it, all things cheesy to the city at the end of October, and Glendi Greek Festival showcases a huge range of tasty Greek treats to try.
