Exploring Adelaide while taking a CELTA

Not many cities in Australia combine the beauty and calmness of Adelaide. The vibrant South Australian city is not just a great destination for TEFL, but has a variety of activities to keep you occupied and fascinated throughout your CELTA training. Adelaide is also known for high quality of education, affordability and international student mix.

There is something about the calmness of the River Torrens as it winds through the hills and flows out into the sea of West Beach. You can take a motorboat cruise to explore the river or gather more excitement using a paddle boat. Nature lovers will enjoy the Adelaide Botanic Gardens and Kangaroo Island. The botanic garden offers exotic displays of architectural wonders such as the Santos Museum of Economic Botany and eight gardens including the Garden of Health.

Ultimately, Adelaide is a world class wine city and your stay will be incomplete without a taste of wine in any of the wine districts. Visit Barossa with over 100 wineries and take part in side activities like cycling and hot air balloon. Then finish up your wine tour at the McLaren Vale, home to over 70 cellar doors and wineries and famous as the birthplace of South Australian wine industry.

The beauty of Adelaide can hardly be experienced in just a weekend or an evening especially with the intensive CELTA course. Consider staying behind for a week or two after your training to explore more interesting spots.
