Home to some of the world’s best wineries a short drive away, exceptional produce, stunning natural landscapes and iconic events, it’s time to add Adelaide to your list to visit. Whether it’s cruising through the wine regions, sampling artisanal produce at Adelaide Central Market, scoffing down Coffin Bay oysters, or seeing a performance, Adelaide is the ideal destination for a quick getaway, year-round. The Festival State is a direct flight, and a tick under three hours away with Jetstar. Locals tip: head straight from Adelaide Airport to Adelaide Central Market for breakfast or lunch – you won’t be disappointed.
Food. Culture. Sports. Fun. It isn’t hard to see why the Victorian capital has long been a destination loved by Sunshine Coast locals. Known for an array of sporting events, shopping boutiques and spectacular food scene, Melbourne is a direct flight, two hours away with either Jetstar, Qantas, Bonza or Virgin Australia. Think a game of AFL at the ‘G, shop-til-you-drop on Chapel Street and unearthing the city’s underground bars and restaurants ready to tantalise your taste buds, Melbourne is ready and waiting for you. Local’s tip: do yourself a favour, and book ahead for a culinary masterclass in South East Asian cuisine with dinner at Chin Chin in the city’s centre.
Another harbour city, Sydney is the place to be when it comes to events, seaside walks, dining and iconic experiences. Whether it’s a luxurious stay in the city, a post-surf coffee and experiences among the backdrop of the Sydney Opera House, it truly has something for everyone. Local’s tip: make a trip to Newtown for an iconic culinary and shopping experience that will be hard to forget. Sydney is just a 90-minute direct flight away, and you can fly with either Jetstar, Qantas or Virgin Australia.
