Driving in Adelaide, like the rest of Australia, is on the left-hand side of the road, which should feel right at home for those from the UK. However, the city's grid layout differs from the UK's winding roads. Nevertheless, Adelaide's roads are well signposted and easy to navigate.

Speed Limits and Traffic Rules

Adelaide's speed limits are clearly displayed on road signs. Urban areas typically have a limit of 50 km/h, major roads go up to 60 km/h to 80 km/h, and highways and freeways 100 km/h to 110 km/h. Unlike the UK, Australia uses the metric system, so remember to convert.

Car Class Recommendations

  • Economy Cars: For city breaks and shorter distances, these are best.
  • SUVs: For road trips to the surrounding natural wonders, opt for these vehicles.

Parking in Adelaide

On-street parking and numerous car parks throughout the city should cover your parking needs. Note that Adelaide uses paid parking zones, so keep an eye out for the parking signs and meters.
