Let’s face it, on every holiday we go on these days we’re constantly searching for the perfect Instagram post. Whether it’s the delicately plated meal of your dreams or the perfect background for your killer outfit, Adelaide has you covered. Here is our take on the most Instagram-worthy spots.

  • The State Library of South Australia

    The stunning State Library oozes elegance and class. A popular spot for fashion, wedding and graduation shoots, the Mortlock Wing looks like something straight out of a palace. Look out over the balcony and see multiple levels of walls lined with books. Dark wood fixings and a wrought iron barrier add to the wings historic feel.

  • Little Rundle Street

    The Little Rundle Street Art Project has seen new life breathed into the previously deserted laneway. Its art covered walls make for the perfect addition to your Instagram feed. Show up in your best outfit for a great contrast image to shake up your feed. New artworks are constantly popping up, so be sure to stop back each time you’re in Adelaide for an updated pic.

  • Henley Square

    You simply can’t go past Henley Square for beautiful beach sunset photos. Head to the delightful twinkling fairy lights to up your Instagram game even further! Henley Square is not only thriving with life it’s the perfect backdrop for any insta post. We recommend heading down just before sunset to get that golden hour glow on all your pics.

  • Kutchi Deli Parwana

    Now we’d never suggest that you walk into any establishment, take some photos and leave. However, what we would suggest is that you eat a delicious meal in a very aesthetically pleasing restaurant. Kutchi Deli Parwana is an Afghan street food restaurant serving delightful lunches. Their food is as bright as their mosaic blue walls. There’s no way you could leave here not feeling happy!

  • Adelaide Botanic Gardens

    If your feed is in need of a bit of nature, head down to the Adelaide Botanic Gardens. With a huge variety of habitats to choose from it is the perfect place to add some green to your grid. Head to the historic green hours for a beautiful background, or get the perfect landscape shot across the lake. The Botanic Gardens are the perfect place to let your creativity flow for beautiful images your friends will be jealous of.

  • Adelaide Oval

    Take your sunset panoramas to the next level at the Adelaide Oval RoofClimb. Climb to the top of the ovals roof for unparalleled views of the Adelaide skyline. Book in for a twilight climb and watch as the sun sets over the horizon. We think this once in a lifetime experience will instantly become one of your most liked photos!

As you can see there are so many wonderful Instagram worthy spots in Adelaide. Plus, this list is super short, there are so many more places to check out too. Be sure to tag us in all your fabulous Adelaide Insta shots!
