Weekend in Adelaide

I'm planning a girls weekend to Adelaide and want to find out a) best place to stay near great eateries and some fun shopping b) some massage therapy and c) a winery day. Finishing off the weekend with a yoga session before heading home. Looking at December so should be pretty good weather. :) Thank you

I suggest you stay in a city hotel- several offer weekend special deals

These hotels come to mind: Playford, Mayfair....

Bon voyage :-)

Weekend notes has a whole category for such stuff.


I suspect it's a case of picking the activities then deciding on a accommodation location that suits

The CBD will have the eateries and the shopping, and more shopping and day spas on the southern or eastern sides but going down to the beach, the Barossa or the SouthCoast and staying at a hotel there will open up other possibilities..

For accommodation near eateries try...

The Majestic, Crowne, or Mantra (Hindmarsh Square) for Rundle Street East.

Hilton International or Quest on Franklin for Adelaide Central Market and Gouger Street.

Finally the Mayfair, Stamford Plaza, Intercontinental, Playford or Miller Apartments for Laneway bars/cafes/restaurants on Leigh, Peel, Gilbert and Gresham Streets.

They are all within a short distance of each other so a taxi would not be that expensive. Or you can free bus or Tram during the day

for Sunday breakfast/Brunch try the Market Shed on Holland...You could also check to see if the Gillies Street Market is on when you are in town.

Not into massages but perhaps try the Jurlique Day Spa in Rundle Mall.

Winery day tours take your pick from McLaren Vale, Barossa Valley or Adelaide Hills. Lots to choose from...from Coaches to boutique operators. Perhaps check online with each of the Visitor Information Centres for each region to see what may appeal.

I've had some great ladies weekends in the city.. my pick is the Mayfair (for the rooms.. best beds ever) unless budget is tight.. then perhaps look at the Ibis. There's no shortage of great restaurants so perhaps post back here with the type of thing you like to eat and we can help. Sean's Kitchen and Madame Hanoi are good choices for groups of girls (have done so myself) also make sure to visit The Hennessy Lounge and 2KW Rooftop bars if the weather is good.

Visit the bars of Leigh and Peel street .(make sure you try to find Maybe Mae .. ask a local !) . just go and wander.. also Bank Street Social .. if you are in the city . As for spa's .. you can find an endota or jurlique OR just out of the city is Temple Day Spa (short taxi ride) in Unley. They can put together something great for a group. As for winery tours look at Getaways in the Barossa.. they run trips from Adelaide to the Barossa, Also Groovy Grape perhaps?
