Re-energise those study brain cells with an easy weekend away - just hop on a bus, hop in the car or grab a cheap flight and you're there!

You don't need to wait for your next holidays to getaway from the stress of study with bargain YHAs in great locations just a bus, car or plane ride away from Adelaide.

Top 5 things to do in Adelaide on your uni break:


Splash it up at the beach, get zen on the jetty, catch a wave, watch the sun jump out of the water - and then back in again - just a 90 minute bus ride from the city - easy peasy!

 Bushwalks galore, sunsets over the city, koala cuddling and kangaroo feeding at nearby Cleland Wildlife Park - heard enough? Head for the hills! Just a 25 minute drive from the city and a world away from everything.

 Sea lions, sharks, seafood, sandboarding! Sound good? A quick flight across 3 peninsula's will get you there for an unforgettable weekend of adventure.

 You COULD spend a whole weekend checking out the amazing street art everywhere - add in some live music, a footy game, amazing food, art galleries and a spot of shopping and you've got the ultimate city break.


 Walk, climb, be one with nature, pet the hostel chickens, eat their yummy eggs and chill out to the breathtaking view. Just get in the car and drive East until you see the beautiful mountains - maybe follow a map, just in case.
