I was lucky enough to have a last minute trip to Australia in March, and it turns out this is the best time to visit Adelaide. Yes, it is a small place but go there at this time of year and there numerous things going on - the Adelaide Cup Races, Adelaide Festival, WOMADelaide Music festival, and The Fringe, to name a few.
The Adelaide Fringe literally takes over the city with 900 events staged in pop up venues in parks, warehouses, lane-ways and empty buildings as well as established venues such as theatres, hotels, art galleries, cafes and town halls. A carnival atmosphere is present throughout and you can't walk around the city without seeing something creative and unusual.
See stand-up comedy, dance shows, hula-hooping or musicals as original as 'Wolf Creek The Musical', with prices ranging from $5 to $30.
