Weekend Guide

Plan the perfect weekend at the Hilton Adelaide hotel, overlooking Victoria Square in the heart of the city center with easy access to many businesses, theater, dining and shopping districts.

Saturday

Morning

  • Adelaide International Airport is approximately 6 km from Adelaide City Centre. A taxi ride from will cost about $20-$25. Hilton Adelaide is situated at the geographic heart of the city, at 233 Victoria Square. After you check-in, visit The Brasserie Restaurant in the hotel for a delicious buffet breakfast to kick-start your day.
  • After breakfast head to the Adelaide Central Markets, conveniently a 2 minute walk from this Adelaide hotel. Explore more than 80 market stalls and their extensive range of fresh local produce and multicultural cuisine. This popular tourist attraction offers some of the best food and wine that South Australia has to offer.
  • Once you’ve sampled some of South Australia’s finest produce, take a 15 minute walk to Torrens Lake and enjoy the beautiful views and surrounding parklands.  We suggest you join the skipper and crew on the wonderful fleet of boats called “The Popeye” to enjoy a commentary highlighting some of Adelaide’s best landmarks.

Afternoon

  • After you hop off The Popeye, stop at the iconic Rundle Street for some lunch. Specifically located between Frome Street and East Terrace, Rundle Street is the heart beat of Adelaide’s ever popular cosmopolitan East End District. Be tantalised by some of Adelaide’s best known cafes, restaurants and wine bars. Not only is Rundle Street a restaurant hot spot, it is here you will also discover the very best in cutting-edge fashion - featuring designer labels, boutique stores and funky home wares. So why not treat yourself to a little retail therapy after lunch. Still not shopped out after walking down Rundle Street? Stop by at Rundle Mall – Adelaide’s main shopping destination.
  • If shopping isn’t your thing, we suggest you head to The Adelaide Zoo - home to many local and national animals in Australia. Most recently, the zoo became home to Wang Wang and Funi, Australia’s first Giant Pandas. In 2008, Zoos South Australia signed a cooperative agreement with China to help secure the long-term survival of Giant Pandas. Entry is $32.50 for Adults and $18.00 for Children.

Evening

  • Return to the hotel and enjoy Hilton Adelaide hotel facilities; swim in the heated pool or enjoy a relaxing sauna before getting ready for a night out.
  • Adelaide is full of small hidden bars. Visit Clever Little Tailor on Peel Street or Udaberri on Leigh Street and enjoy a delicious local wine or beer.  
  • Gouger Street, which is located 2 minutes from the hotel, is the main restaurant strip in Adelaide. There is a heavy Asian influence; however, there are other varying and interesting cuisines on offer to suit everyone. Have a wander over and decide what you feel like eating!

Sunday

Morning

  • Enjoy a full buffet breakfast in The Brasserie Restaurant at Hilton Adelaide or head into the Central markets and enjoy breakfast at Lucias.
  • Hire a car and start your picturesque journey to Adelaide Hills which is a short 25 minute drive from Hilton Adelaide. The district is renowned for its cool climate wines and regional produce of nuts, cheeses, smoked meats, organic vegetables, free run venison, orchards of cherries, apples and quinces. On the way up why not visit the Mount Lofty Botanical Gardens or Cleland Wildlife Park - home to many Australian animals. There is also a fabulous selection of wineries to visit while exploring the Adelaide Hills. We recommend you try The Lane which has an extensive list of locally produced single vineyard wines.  

Afternoon

  • For lunch, stop by at Mount Lofty Summit. This restaurant and café sits at the highest peak of the Mount Lofty Ranges. Sit back and enjoy the stunning sweeping views of Adelaide.
  • Before leaving Adelaide Hills, stop by at Hahndorf - Australia's oldest German settlement. The garden village's Main Street is lined with eateries, souvenir and gift shops, clothing, leather goods and craft outlets and galleries. Hahndorf is a must-do for all visitors.
  • Head back to Adelaide and jump on board the Glenelg Tram, located directly in front of the hotel and spend the afternoon by the beach. Located only 10km from the heart of Adelaide City, Glenelg is a charming seaside resort set on the long sandy white shores of Holdfast Bay.

Evening

  • Watch the city go by in the relaxed atmosphere of The Collins Bar, a contemporary cocktail bar at the Hilton Adelaide hotel and a favourite for after-work drinks and snacks. Alternatively, enjoy the finest of wines, a delicious selection of cocktails and snacks in an informal and comfortable environment at The Lobby Lounge. The heart of Hilton Adelaide, The Lobby Lounge is open nightly with live music on Friday and Saturday evenings and serves elegant High Tea on weekends.
