    Adelaide Car RentalAdelaide lies on the southern coast of Australia, between the Fleurieu Peninsula and the Great Australian Bite. The majority of travellers use car hire in Adelaide to visit the sights and surrounding areas. Unlike most other Australian Coastal Cities, which have reef life and forests, Adelaide is surrounded by lush hills and deserts, with extensive marine life noted for large numbers of whales and sharks. While in Adelaide, lay on the cities stunning beaches, attend one of the many festivals hosted each year, or head out to the famed wine country that surrounds this bustling metropolis. Shop at Central Market and Adelaide's stylish boutiques, then head to the Adelaide Oval for a cricket match.

Here you can enjoy more beaches, learn about the whaling industry of the 1800s and visit Granite Island, home to local penguins. Granite Island is linked to the mainland by a bridge which visitors can cross via the island's horse-drawn tram. If you choose to head north around Gulf St. Vincent, head to the Yorke Peninsula, another popular holiday destination.
