"City of Bungalows" Adelaide by Charlie_UK

Adelaide Travel Guide: 1,091 reviews and 2,586 photos

Adelaide is often known as the "City of Churches" but as 99% of houses are single-storey, it was more like the city of bungalows. It has elegance and charm, beautiful parklands and a nice beach. It has a wonderful and picturesque Crciket ground. But Adelaide not the most exciting place I have ever visited - by a long way! Hot tourist attractions are somewhat few and far between.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Possibly the most beautiful Cricket ground in the world
  • Cons:A bit dull.
  • In a nutshell:Does EVERYONE here live in a bungalow?

    Oh I thought Adelaide was great... I wasn't expecting a fast pace. but it was the BEST place to relax and enjoy a bit of luxurious downtime.

    Why single Adelaide out for having endless suburbs of single story homes? The attractions are there if you know where to look.

    Gees you make it sound like the end of the earth - FYI most people here in Australia live in single story homes, and we don't refer to them as bungalows!

    I agree...Adelaide doesn't have a lot to offer the tourist but it's still a nice place...
