Adelaide is often considered somewhat conservative and boring when compared to its eastern counterparts.
However, with an eclectic mix of colonial architecture and world-renowned festivals now leaving their mark, it’s no wonder Adelaide was named by Lonely Planet as one of the top 10 cities to visit this year.
So grab your phone and be ready to carve out your own slice of Adelaide in these perfect Instagrammable locations.
SUNSET OVER THE BEACHES
Nothing screams “perfect photo” more than a beach sunset and Adelaide offers many opportunities for you to express your inner artist. From the bustling hub of Glenelg to the relaxing waves of North Haven, you’re sure to find your ideal stretch of golden sand from which to grab your shot. If you want a local experience, walk or run from jetty to jetty just as the sun dips behind the endless ocean vista. #beach #sunset
THE RUNDLE LANTERN
Located in the cultural hub of east-end Adelaide, The Rundle Lantern is a digital canvas light display which allows anyone to influence the imagery with a simple tweet.

MORPHETT STREET BRIDGE ART
Hidden from the usual foot traffic, the underside of Morphett Street bridge has been labelled a “free wall” to be used by established and emerging street artists. It’s best to visit in the evening so you can take in all the gritty and alternative atmosphere the west-end has to offer. #adelaide #streetart #adelaidewestend
A perfect place for a run or stroll, the section of the Torrens River flowing adjacent to North Terrace has long been a favourite for Adelaideans. From one end to the other you can expect to see wild ducks, swans and pelicans, picnicking lovers, native vegetation and an ever increasing skyline including the recently expanded Oval. Don’t be afraid to detour off the beaten path to grab that unique snap. #adelaide #rivertorrens
Often referred to as “the Heart of Adelaide”, no visit to the city would be complete without a stop at the famous markets. It truly is a feast for the senses featuring a smorgasbord of sights, smells and sounds that are sure to leave a lasting impression. With about 80 stalls, you won’t struggle to find a great Instagram shot. #adelaide #centralmarkets
MOUNT LOFTY SUMMIT
A slight detour from the city, the summit offers panoramic views reaching from the rolling Adelaide hills, across the plains and ending with the scenic shorelines. If you’re up for it, you can hike the 3.5km return trip from the base, with the pay-off having the chance to see native wildlife in its natural habitat. Sunrise is the a great time to grab that opportunistic selfie. #mtlofty #summit #selfie
Taking advantage of Adelaide’s grid layout, Victoria Square lies at the centre of the city, providing perfect views in every direction. Your best bet for a great snap is to look north where you will be greeted by the historic Adelaide Post Office and Town Hall. If you time it right, you may even catch the tram breezing through. Developments are due to finish soon and promise to provide an even more unique experience of the city centre. #adelaide #victoriasquare
