getting to adelaide

As Adelaide is centrally located on the Australian mainland getting here is convenient and easy to organise. 

Adelaide airport is a modern international airport. Interstate flights to Adelaide take less than an hour from Melbourne and less than three hours from Brisbane, Sydney, Canberra and Hobart.

If you prefer the romance of rail travel, take one of the last great rail journeys on the Indian Pacific, the train from Sydney to Perth stopping at Adelaide SA. You can also join The Ghan, a truly legendary train that travels from Adelaide through the desert to Alice Springs and Darwin.

With a modern and well maintained national road network travelling to Adelaide by road is also an option for those wanting to explore the country at a more leisurely pace.

Getting Around Adelaide

Once you’re in Adelaide there is an efficient public transport network of trams, trains and buses to move you around the city and beyond. The Adelaide CBD is also easy to walk around with wide, flat streets laid out in a simple grid pattern.

The Adelaide Convention Centre is conveniently located in the heart of the city on the banks of the River Torrens and everything you need is only a few minutes walk:

  • Over 4,000 hotel rooms within a walking distance
  • Over 300 restaurants and cafes within a 1km radius
  • Festival Theatre and Casino - next door
  • Rundle Mall, Adelaide’s premier shopping district, 5 minutes


The Adelaide Convention Centre operates two convenient on-site car parks. Their location directly under the Centre means that attending events is fast, efficient and easy. For a map and further information click here.

Our dealings with the ACC are always positive and friendly. Because of our constant positive dealings with the ACC we now have 3 annual events at the ACC. I am hoping to bring all of our events to the ACC in future.
