Discover Adelaide & Win a Night for 2 at the Hilton Adelaide!

30/06/2014 | By

Some people seem to think there’s not much to do in Adelaide in the winter time and the cold weather certainly persuades lots of us to hunker down of an evening. But, with the help of Hilton Adelaide, I’d like to encourage you to poke your nose out the door and check out what is happening – even in the dead of winter – in Adelaide over the next month or two.

Far from being a sleepy backwater in winter time, Adelaide has plenty to attract both locals and those from further afield and it won’t be hard to think of a good reason to spend a night in town. You could take some ballroom dancing lessons, check out the Australian Dance Theatre or go to the ballet.  The Adelaide International Guitar Festival is coming up in July and is a massive four day feast for axe aficionados of all types or you might like to take in an exhibition, exercise your credit card at the markets, spend an hour of two at the National Wine Centre or indulge with dinner, enjoying some wonderful South Australian food and wine safe in the knowledge that you won’t have to drive home.

You can make Adelaide your oyster for a weekend , discovering a whole new bunch of secrets, if you win this great prize. The stylish Adelaide Hilton is located right in the heart of the city, a short stroll from all of the entertainment, shopping and dining precincts.  Their restaurant, The Brasserie, boasts a wonderful South Australian menu with culinary inspiration provided by our best local and regional providores, farmers, growers and suppliers and the newly refurbished Collins Bar is home to an extensive list of bespoke cocktails.  And if you need any help working out just what you want to do while in town, just head straight to The Adelaide City Council What’s On page or Glam Adelaide for comprehensive details of every little thing that’s happening.

    There is no doubt I’m missing out on the amazing hidden treasures of Adelaide. The Market Shed on Holland, which is full of local eats, my personal set venture to investigate The Loft Wine Bar on Gouger and ending winter with The Adelaide Fashion Festival, hopefully supporting a friend or two in the event, and reporting on it.

    I love Adelaide, the architecture and of course the amazing wineries – Seppelts, Henschke, Coriole… Ahhhh so want to hit up Coriole.. Knappstein, lol… All the wineries, possibly going to need a good many weekend adventures. 🙂 Not to mention the delightful local yummies. I’d also be pretty keen to get back to Radelaide for this cute little jewellery shop that sold the most gorgeous one off pieces, absolutely beautiful. 🙂
