Lonely Planet has ranked Adelaide’s West End, which incorporates the Convention Centre, as one of the top three “coolest” neighbourhoods in Australia. A reputation earned largely by its vibrant laneways, restaurants, bars and arts scene, the West End has really come of age in recent years, offering delegates plenty to discover pre- and post- conference hours.

Adelaide’s great destination appeal has been recognised via a string of industry accolades in recent years. Earlier this year, Lonely Planet listed South Australia as one of the ‘Top 10 Regions to Visit’ in their ‘Best of Travel’ series, while The Economist rated Adelaide as one of the ‘World’s Most Liveable Cities’. For the foodies amongst us, Gourmet Traveller judged Adelaide-based ‘Orana’ the 2017 ‘Australian Restaurant of the Year’. Further illustrating the city as a great foodie destination, Adelaide was recently listed in the Top 100 World Food Cities List.
