ALIA is heading to Adelaide for the National 2016 Conference. Not only is it one of Australia’s most picturesque cities it is leading in produce and fine wine.
Why visit Adelaide?
State Library of South Australia
Located with only a few minutes’ walk from the conference venue Adelaide Convention Centre, the State Library of South Australia is the largest public reference library in the state. Open from 10am daily, make sure you take time to discover this beauty.
The 140 year old oval just underwent a $535 million makeover and saw its capacity go up to 50,000. It is also home to 2 AFL teams and 3 cricket teams. Why not catch a game over the weekend whilst you’re in town for the conference?
Adelaide Central Market
After a stroll around Adelaide’s Central Market, you’ll never want to go home. Find stands of local produce from across South Australia. Many producers sell cooler bags and ice packs so you can take some treats back to the hotel.
South Australia knows how to make fine wine and one of the greatest things Adelaide has to offer is the wine regions surrounding the city. From the Adelaide Hill to Clare Valley, Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale. If you’re after a quick trip, shoot up to Adelaide Hills.
