After enjoying a hearty breakfast at one of the cafes and restaurants just a stones throw from your apartment, visit the Adelaide Botanic Gardens and simply enjoy spending a couple hours wandering through some of the 50 hectares of spectacular gardens.  Relax and enjoy a coffee while taking in your surroundings and admiring some of Australia’s finest plant collections.

When hunger sets in, wander through the city and over to Adelaide Central Food Market and be amazed by the diverse selection of fresh food, including fruit, vegetables, meat, fish and wonderful bakeries to name but a few. It is one of the largest undercover fresh produce markets in the southern hemisphere and also houses some great cafes and eateries to visit while enjoying the bustling and colourful atmosphere.

A weekend away isn’t complete without a little retail therapy and a chance to treat yourself so have a meander along to Rundle Mall where you will find some of the large well known retailers but also some smaller independent boutiques to browse through to the sound of buskers playing their music and adding to the vibrant scene.

Before returning to the hotel, something you must do to complete your romantic retreat is to head along to the Adelaide Oval just before sunset and take part in the Twightlight Roofclimb. Watch the sky light up with magical hues right before your eyes and be amazed by the beauty of the city from the rooftop. It is truly a magical experience and one not to be missed.

Finally its time to head back to the hotel for a rest and freshen up before heading out to dinner in one of the many restaurants whereby you can warm yourself up in front of a roaring fire and enjoy a glass of wine or two with a tasty meal.
