During July, the heart of winter, Adelaide and South Australia charm visitors with temperatures hovering around 8-15°C. Don't let the cool weather deter you; it's the perfect backdrop for vibrant events like Illuminate. This enchanting light and art festival transforms the city into an interactive canvas of light, color, and creativity after sundown, a true celebration of winter’s long nights.

Outside the city, the Adelaide Hills Winter Reds Weekend offers an unforgettable epicurean adventure, pairing exquisite local wines with fresh seaside culinary delights. The Adelaide Beer & BBQ Festival also takes center stage in July, warming the cool winter days with craft beers and mouthwatering barbeque.

Finally, the Southern Right Whales grace the coast during their annual migration. Head down to Victor Harbor for a once-in-a-lifetime sighting. In July, Adelaide and South Australia truly light up, both literally and metaphorically, promising a winter holiday full of warmth and wonder.

Top July Tours

Roof Climb Adelaide Oval Experience

Skip a pedestrian visit to the Adelaide Oval—one of the region’s most recognized landmarks—for an excursion to the roof with unique city views. After a safety briefing and climbing into your suit and harness, follow your guide across a link bridge to an open viewing deck. From there, have the chance to walk a lean-out point 164 feet (50 meters) above the Oval’s cricket field.

Cultural Caper Adelaide Walking Tour

This leisurely small-group walking tour explores the North Terrace area of Adelaide. Filled with cultural institutions and other public buildings, this mile-long avenue also boasts many historical buildings, including an 1838 church, the colonial-era Ayers House, and the Adelaide Casino in a restored 1920s railway station. Tour highlights include Parliament House, Adelaide University, the War Memorial, and more.

Adelaide Central Market Discovery Tour

The Adelaide Central Market is one of the southern hemisphere’s largest food markets and a thriving cultural hub. Rather than show up without knowing which stalls to visit, tour the market with a guide who takes you to sample tried-and-true winners. While you sample food, your guide also tells you about the history of migration in South Australia and how it has influenced the food culture.
