Arriving Adelaide Airport

Adelaide Airport is the primary airport serving Adelaide and is the 5th largest and busiest airport in Australia. It is widely acknowledged as being one of the world’s top 5 airports and is located approximately 6km from the city centre.

Taxi cabs from the airport to downtown Adelaide are likely to charge around $10-$15 for the journey.

The size and busyness of the airport dictates that there is a huge volume of traffic passing through the terminals on a daily basis, although in keeping with the airports fine reputation, procedures such as check in, customs and baggage collection are dealt with extremely efficiently and all queues tend to move very swiftly throughout the day.

Public facilities in the airport are numerous, with plenty of dining and shopping opportunities available, as well as free wi-fi access for all visitors.

Car rental queues are also among the lowest in Australia and once you have arrived through baggage collection, it shouldn’t be too long before you are leaving the airport and starting your vacation.

Driving In Adelaide

Despite the long, open spaced highways that much of Australia is famous for, high traffic levels in Adelaide can make driving in the city quite a daunting task for first-time drivers, particularly during business hours when the city centre can almost reach gridlock status.

Be sure to avoid the city centre at peak-traffic hours, or there is every chance you will be caught up in the chaos.

You may also find it both easier and cheaper to park in one of the city’s many modern car park facilities, and use the city’s excellent public transport system to visit the local attractions.

Car parks are generally provided at an affordable rate for a full day’s parking, and many are securely guarded at all times.
