Adelaide Convention Centre
Adelaide Convention Centre,
North Terrace, Adelaide,
South Australia 5000,
A striking landmark on Adelaide’s Riverbank, the Adelaide Convention Centre(ACC) is one of the world’s most modern, flexible and technologically advanced venues. Fifteen minutes’ drive from Adelaide Airport and a stone’s throw from South Australia’s famed tourist regions, the ACC combines state-of-the-art facilities with creative menus and innovative event technologies.
National Wine Centre of Australia
Corner of Botanic & Hackney Roads
Adelaide, South Australia
Australia 5000
The National Wine Centre opened in October 2001, and has gone on to win many architectural awards for its use of natural light, metal and wood. From the rammed earth walls to the 150 year old jarrah wood floors in Hickinbotham Hall, the Centre conveys a real sense of being in a winery or vineyard. Its curves and arches evoke the staves of the wood barrels used to age many of our best wines, and the rammed earth walls echo the soil of our vineyards. It also has its own vineyard - right in the middle of the city. Some of the Australian wine industry's most important varieties are grown here, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Semillon and Riesling. The greatest number of vines is given to Shiraz, the varietal on which our wine industry developed its worldwide reputation.
