What to enjoy in Adelaide - ASCC Conference 2022
The conference we've all be waiting for is around the corner, only 3 weeks away 😃
Needless to say the Avenir team are eager to attend the ASCC 2022 conference that will take place from the 10th to the 12th May in Radelaide!
Did you know that Paul Kent, Avenir's co-GM is from Adelaide?
What better way to discover this city and its surroundings than taking recommendations from a local!
Make the most of this work trip and stay a few extra days to enjoy this beautiful part of Australia.
The Kaurna people are the traditional custodians of the Adelaide Plains on which Adelaide is located.
It’s pretty chilled over there, most things are to do with food and wine, and generally no more than 30 mins travel time.
Things to do in the city
Adelaide Oval roof climb - not for everyone though!
If you're into footy, there’s an AFL game between Adelaide and Brisbane Saturday 14th May, after the conference.
Visit the Adelaide Central Markets, great little food places for a morning coffee and fresh produce.
Catch the tram down to Glenelg foreshore for an evening stroll on the beach, followed by dinner along Jetty Road (Adelaide's version of St Kilda in Melbourne)
Areas with great places to eat:
City: Gouger St, North Tce;
East: Norwood Parade;
South: Unley Road;
North: O’Connell St
Up for a museum?
What about the Art Gallery of South Australia or the South Australian Museum?
And of course, like in every great Australian city, you can always check out the zoo or the botanic gardens.
