It had taken 6 days and been one incredible adventure across the Nullarbor Plain, but 3,033km later and we had made it to Adelaide in surprisingly good weather! The sun was shining and the temperature was soaring so after checking into the YHA Central Adelaide hostel (we had opted for a private room knowing we would need some sleep!), we set off to explore what the city had to offer.

Sadly we discovered all to soon that the answer was not a lot. We walked around the main shopping precinct, having to buy some new flip-flops (or thongs!) for Nick after his snapped - they really aren't designed to be worn every day for 6 months straight - finding some nice Christmasy shopping arcades.

We sat by the riverside for another picnic lunch and then walked over to the Museum and University district which has some stunning architecture and felt like we had just landed in Oxford.

We got lost in the Gallery of South Australia for an hour or so which was really good as the exhibits were done via a theme rather than by date meaning you had old masters alongside modern pieces. We called it quits for the day and headed back to the hostel for a much needed early night!

Next morning and we decided to go for a stroll around the Botanic Gardens of Adelaide which were very nice.

Then after another picnic lunch we jumped on a tram and headed to Glenelg which is Adelaide's main beach and spent the afternoon soaking up the sunshine, before taking advantage of Happy Hour at a beach side bar for a couple of beers!

It was time to say goodbye to Adelaide. Sadly we had not been able to find another relocation car deal as we had hoped to get us to Melbourne, so it was off to the airport for our 1 hour flight.
