Adelaide is famous for its long metropolitan and country coastline, clean white sandy beaches and wine districts including McLaren Vale and the world famous Barossa Valley. Make sure you plan your visit to Adelaide with a few days either side of Concordia to make the most of this beautiful city.

Catch a tram down to Glenelg beach from the city centre – it will take about 30 mins. Or hire a car and head out to our beautiful southern beaches for surfing and swimming. In 30 minutes you can be enjoying Willunga, Port Noarlunga, Silver Sands or Aldinga. If you plan it well, you can even fit in a surf before you head to Concordia!

Adelaide Fringe

It’s Fringe Festival time in Adelaide 14 February – 15 March, so you’re perfectly placed to enjoy some of the final shows for the 2020 Fringe when you come for Concordia.

Check out the 2020 Adelaide Fringe program here.


There are lots of accommodation options in Adelaide but, as this is festival season and a busy time, we highly recommend that you book now to avoid disappointment.

We’ve listed a few hotel options below within walking distance to the campus. Adelaide is very easy to get around though, so if you’re looking for a more peaceful alternative away from the craziness of the Fringe and night life, keep the city fringe in mind.

Areas like North Adelaide, Kent Town, Hackney, Rose Park and Dulwich, have alternative accommodation such as heritage cottages and apartments, and are situated in leafy and quiet residential areas. They will provide you with a 20 – 30 minute walk through playing fields, olive groves, parkland and the zoo, through strips of cafes, restaurants and bars, over rivers and creeks and right into the heart of the CBD.

If it’s a beach location you’re looking for, Glenelg is a great option, linked to the the CBD by tram.

Try Airbnb and Stayz for suggestions in areas outside of the CBD.
