Down Under Must-Dos

JETSET Luxury Travel Advisor and trendsetter Melissa Pugh on her down under must-dos.


Stay: Mayfair Hotel is in the heart of the city—a Romanesque style building that’s near the Riverbank Entertainment Precinct. Kickstart a night on the town at the recently opened rooftop bay, Hennessey.

Top Foodie Finds: 2KW is a another hip rooftop bar. And all of the locals go to Adelaide Central Market—and Aussies from other parts of the country travel to Adelaide just for this market.

Not To Miss: The South Australian Museum exhibits the largest collection of Aboriginal artifacts. It’s so important—and interesting—to learn about the history of Australia on your visit.

Off the Beaten Path: Wine Country! Adelaide Hills and Barossa are both great day trips.

Insider Access: We give JETSET clients access to expert local intel. Our guide at the South Australian Museum is an Aborigine.

Our wine country guide is also unbelievable.
