Picturesque outdoors, exquisite Wine, stylish architecture, and boutique shopping are the four main highlights of Adelaide. The charm of Adelaide lies in the fact that it offers modern conveniences as well as an innocent appeal like that of a picturesque village. The reason for Adelaide's natural beauty can be owed to the fact that it is surrounded by the wine regions of Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, and Clare Valley.
