Wines from South Australia's vineyards complement the locally grown food produce and six stages pump our music and fashion, creating a village atmosphere in the city. A short distance from The Parade in Norwood, Magill Road is the area for fossicking for that unique item.The River Torrens Linnear Park is ideal to jog, walk, cycle, picnic or to feed the ducks; a trail runs right through the city centre, passing the Adelaide Festival Centre, Adelaide Convention Centre and Adelaide Zoo, providing an oasis in the city of churches.
