Surrounded by pristine parklands and stunning coastline, Adelaide is arguably Australia’s prettiest city. In recent years it has emerged as a blossoming cultural hub with several food, wine and arts festivals drawing thousands of visitors from around Australia and across the world annually. Of course the city is merely the gateway to the rest of South Australia with the famous wine regions of the McLaren Vale, The Barossa and Clare Valleys just a short drive from the city. Budget Car Hire have a convenient location in the suburb of Marleston midway between the airport and city centre so if you’re considering heading out of the city then drop in and pick up a vehicle.
