Why book an Adelaide Airport transfer with us?

Adelaide Airport has plenty of transport options into the city. You can catch the Adelaide Metro Bus, a number of shuttle buses, or a taxi. But taxis and buses aren’t the cheapest or most convenient ways to get into the city. Buses take predetermined routes, and you may find yourself winding through Adelaide for ages before you finally reach your stop. There’s also luggage to contend with, which must be awkwardly hauled onto the bus and squeezed into a rack already packed with bags. Taxis and rideshare options are handy, but you could find yourself queuing or waiting for a long time, and then be charged a pretty penny for your troubles.

With Car Australia, your private chauffeur will pick you up on time, in a comfortable, modern vehicle, and for an affordable, fixed price. We’re one of the most competitively-priced transport providers in Adelaide, and have a huge fleet of vehicles—BMWs, Audis, Toyotas, and Mercedes, just to name a few. Our vehicles range from small to large, allowing us to transport groups of varying sizes. Your safety is also important to us, which is why we thoroughly clean our vehicles after every trip.

Our chauffeurs are locally based and are experienced and professional, and have been driving on Adelaide’s roads for years. They know the city inside out, and if you hit traffic, they’ll take the quickest shortcut out of there.

If your flight happens to be delayed, it isn’t a problem—both our Operations staff and chauffeurs track your flight and the chauffeur will meet you in the arrivals lounge at the adjusted time. We’ll never leave you stranded.

Adelaide Airport

Adelaide Airport is located around seven kilometers to the west of the CBD, and only a quick 15-minute drive (depending on traffic). It’s the main airport in South Australia, and the fifth busiest airport in the country, transporting around 8.5 million passengers a year.

Pick-up and drop-off

As with most airports, the Adelaide Airport pick up and drop off area is located at the entry point of the airport. Vehicles aren’t permitted to wait, so if someone is picking you up, they’ll need to be on time or risk taking the loop road multiple times.

Vehicles must never be left unattended at the pick-up and drop-off points, as this poses a security risk.


If you’re planning on hiring a car, there’s short and long-term parking available at the airport, with bookings taken through their website.

  • Adelaide restaurants

    Adelaide has a number of award-winning restaurants that are perfect for splashing out. Here’s the pick of the bunch.

    • Hardy’s Verandah Restaurant is a 5-star establishment located in the beautiful Piccadilly Valley, just 20 minutes southeast from the Adelaide CBD. It has gorgeous decor, a dark oak bar, open fireplace, and food to die for. Dishes include Wagyu brisket, Riverine striploin, and smoked quail. If you’re looking to impress, this is the restaurant for you.

    • Shiki is a Japanese Teppanyaki restaurant located on the outskirts of the CBD, inside the InterContinental Hotel. It’s one of Adelaide’s most prestigious restaurants, with mouth-watering food being rolled, flipped, and cooked right in front of you by some of the city’s best chefs. If you’re looking for something to delight the senses, Shiki won’t disappoint.

    • Peel Street is an Australian-style restaurant also located in Adelaide’s CBD. It’s a cheaper alternative to our other two restaurants, but serves equally delicious food, including tender pork belly, crispy fried snapper, banana blossom chicken, all made for sharing. The atmosphere is awesome, and you’ll probably want to visit again.

  • Adelaide leisure

    Despite being one of Australia’s smaller cities, Adelaide still has plenty to do. Here are some of its top sights.

    • Adelaide Zoo is the second oldest zoo in the country. It’s run by a non-profit organisation who are passionate about animal conservation, with more than 32,000 members that support South Australia’s rich animal heritage. You’ll find hundreds of animals within the walls of the zoo, including lions, alligators, otters, tamarins, giant pandas, penguins, meerkats, and adorable pygmy hippos.

      It costs just $38 for an adult ticket, and the money will help to prevent the extinction of chimpanzees, giant pandas, tasmanian devils, and more.

    • The Adelaide Botanic Garden is a 51-hectare garden in the CBD that opened its doors 165 years ago and is filled with a staggering display of plant life from all over the world. The gardens are perhaps most famous for their beautiful tropical palm house—a restored Victorian glasshouse imported from Germany in 1875, which is the last building of its kind anywhere in the world.

    • The South Australian Museum is a natural history museum located in the cultural precinct of the Adelaide Parklands, in the northeast corner of the CBD. You can feast your eyes on magnificent aboriginal treasures, ogle award-winning nature photography, and look at the incredible restoration of fossils from 55 million years ago. The museum is packed with things to do and is one of the country’s best.

    • If you like spending time in nature, you might consider taking the 20-minute drive to Cleland Conservation Park, in the Adelaide Hills. The park is protected and maintained by the Australian Department of Environment, Water, and Natural Resources, and conserves a significant area of natural bushland. There’s multiple walking tracks that meander throughout the hills, a waterfall, and a wildlife park at its centre that is home to emus, kangaroos, koalas, dingoes, and other Australian gems. Cleland Conservation Park is the perfect place to get away from the madness of the city, and let nature work its soothing magic on you.
