South Australia offers plenty to do year round, but in the Land Down Under seasons are the opposite of those here in the Northern Hemisphere. This is why South Australia’s Adelaide offers a prefect respite for those ready to escape the long winters and chilly spring weather of North America.
In Australia, March is the first month of fall and still offers plenty of warm weather in an ideal location that’s nestled between the hills and the sea. Here visitors have the opportunity to enjoy a Mediterranean climate with mild winters.
Adelaide Fringe Festival
Visitors to Adelaide will find a lot of things going on during this time of year with the Adelaide Fringe Festival which runs from mid-February through mid-March. It is the largest arts festival in the Southern Hemisphere.
It’s called the “Fringe” Festival because it overlaps the Adelaide Festival which starts at the end of February and the WOMADelaide which celebrates music, arts, and dance for a few days in early March.
February promises hot summer temps, and as the seasons change in March, you can still expect moderately warm weather perfect for outdoor fun. The full schedule of Fringe activities will be posted in November.
Other Things to do and See
Adelaide is Australia’s fifth largest city. Along with world class sporting events like the Santos Tour Down Under, the arts festivals, it also offers a chance for visitors to enjoy an unhurried life away from the festival environment.
It boasts a number of restaurants and cafes ready to serve up fine food and wine, and is surrounded by a stunning verdant landscape or the sea. If you visit in the cooler months, there’s still plenty going on with the Adelaide Cabaret Festival, the OzAsia Fetival, BankSA Sea and Vines Festival and the Barossa Gourmet Weekend.
It’s a destination that offers things to do but an escape from the hectic go-go-go if you’d like.
Adelaide airport is located near the city’s center and offers convenient travel option to guests looking for a warm place to escape the winter weather back home.
