Visiting the ‘City of Churches’? With its surrounding parkland, world-class arts festivals, farm-to-table dining scene and located on the doorstep of some of Australia’s most prestigious wineries, Adelaide is a fantastic city that often gets missed by tourists. If the reason for this is the long flight time from the UK then the best solution is to fly business class to Adelaide.
With flights taking over 20 hours and having at least one connection, the journey can take a toll on even the most frequent flyers. This is where business class flights to Adelaide make sense. With fully flat beds to ensure a good sleep onboard and access to the business class lounges both on departure and in the connection means that you can freshen up, relax and sometimes even get a spa treatment to revitalise yourself.

Adelaide Central Markets
With such a focus on local produce in this vibrant city’s restaurants, a trip to the Adelaide Central Markets is a must on any holiday to Adelaide. Located in the heart of the city and a stone’s throw from the premier restaurant district of Gouger Street, the market contains everything from fresh meats, seafood, and produce, to cheeses, olive oils, and pastries.
Operating for over 140 years on Tuesdays to Saturdays, you can get involved with chef demonstrations, cooking classes, or even a cheese appreciation course. If a leisurely stroll through the vendors peaks the appetite, the many stylish cafes offer a place to rest and sample South Australia’s wares while listening to the hawkers trade.
Insider’s Tip: For a fully immersive experience, book a breakfast or mid-morning tour through the stalls to meet the vendors, taste their produce, and revel in the sounds of this often crazy market.
A short 25 minute vintage tram ride from Central Adelaide has you visiting the best beach in the city, Glenelg Beach. The white sandy beach is lined with charming heritage hotels and bustling boutique shops and cafes making a stunning place to visit in the afternoon as the sun slips below the waves.
With life in this seaside village revolving around the water, it comes as no surprise to find excellent opportunities for deep-sea fishing charters in the Southern Ocean, but also the chance to swim and snorkel with wild dolphins closer to shore.
The “Green Belt”
Adelaide is the only capital city in Australia that was purpose-built rather than a convict settlement and therefore allowed city planners to create an easily navigable city centre. Surrounding the business and dining districts and major shopping precinct of Rundle Mall, lies the “Green Belt”, an open green space containing parklands, the Adelaide Zoo, and Adelaide Oval, the home of cricket in South Australia.
As one of Australia’s premier wine states, a short trip outside of the city will reward those inclined towards trying some of the country’s best vineyards. The closest region, the Maclaren Vale to the south of the capital, has become synonymous with the Shiraz varietal but will suit any enthusiasts looking for robust red wines.
Further afield, the Barossa Valley (Shiraz and Chardonnay), Eden Valley (Shiraz and Riesling), and the Clare Valley (Riesling and Chardonnay) to the north-east offer fantastic diversity to the state’s production, and the Coonawarra (Cabernet Sauvignon) and Limestone Coast to the south are world-renowned for bold and challenging reds.
Insider’s Tip: A lot of Australia’s premier wineries are located in these areas! Visit Penfolds or Henschke for two of Australia’s most discerning reds.
Often said to be the best place to see Australia’s native animals in the wild, Kangaroo Island is the perfect day trip from Adelaide. Hire a car or take a tour from the city to Cape Jarvis to board the ferry across to this pristine paradise.
Kangaroos, Koalas, Wallabies, Echidnas, Platypus, and Penguins all roam freely on Australia’s third largest island, and a colony of Australian Sea Lions at Seal Bay can give you another opportunity for an up-close experience.
Insider’s Tip: Tours operate from Adelaide frequently and often provide a much better experience as the knowledgeable guides are often park rangers and conservationists that can guide you to the best locations for viewing Australia’s unique fauna.

Located just an hour south of Adelaide, Victor Harbour has been a family-friendly holiday destination since the 1800s. Whales migrate into the calm waters of Endeavour Bay between May and October making it one of the best places to view whales from the shore. Granite Island is joined to the mainland by a causeway with a horse-drawn tram shuttle and remains an excellent example of coastal landscapes.
With connections to all major Australian cities by air, Melbourne is the closest and offers visitors a wide breadth of experiences. Known as the “Sporting Capital of Australia” it is the perfect city to base a luxury holiday around the Australian Open Tennis, the Australian Formula One Grand Prix, or the Australian Football League (AFL) Grand Final.
The Great Ocean Road between Adelaide and Melbourne is one of the best drives in the world, taking in dramatic coastal scenery, extinct volcanoes, and stunning mountains around the Grampians National Park. If time permits, this route is a must on any Australian holiday.
When choosing which airline to fly business class to Adelaide with there are a number of factors to consider. From how many connections to what you get included to the price, different airlines offer different value to their passengers.
Those looking for the quickest flight time are best with the Australian carrier QANTAS. Operating a direct flight between London and Perth with an onward connecting flight to Adelaide the flight time is reduced to under 20 hours in total. Followed closely by Qatar Airways, Emirates, Malaysia Airlines and Singapore Airlines with flight times marginally over 20 hours and business class passengers on a schedule have plenty of choices.
Although personal preference certainly impacts your decision, some airlines offering business class flights to Adelaide are always better acclaimed due to their levels of service and comfort. Qatar Airlines has been voted ‘Best Business Class in the World’ several times with innovative seat designs and luxurious lounges making the journey a pleasure. Singapore Airlines offers a 5 star business class cabin as well as the ‘Best Airport in the World’ where passengers can visit a cinema, take a swim, walk through a butterfly garden or, if time permits, take a free tour of the city while they connect.
When weighing up all the benefits of business class flights to Adelaide, the biggest two to compare is the onboard product and the price. With fully flat beds, an emphasis on space, privacy, comfort and service, and an a-la-carte menu all offered on the best carriers, they are often slightly more in price but also offer better value when compared with other airline’s onboard product.
