Thinking of popping over for Mad March in Adelaide? Here are the top 10 reasons to make the trip.

1. The Adelaide Fringe (of course!)
Visit Adelaide during February and March for the Adelaide Fringe - the biggest & wildest arts festival in the Southern Hemisphere with an unbelievable eclectic program of local and international artists. The city transforms during the festival, it's Adelaide like you've never seen it before.

2. Sunny Days & Balmy Nights
Not only does South Australia have some of the most beautiful beaches in the country, we also boast an average temperature of a balmy 29 degrees Celsius during the festival months. Lots of outdoor venues mean you can enjoy a night out under the starry sky.

3. Fabulous Venues
Adelaide has more live music bars and clubs per capita than any other Australian city. Adelaide Fringe has over 400 venues across the state.

4. Great Wine
If you've heard it once, you've heard it 1000 times, but South Australia's wine region is truly amazing to behold. Not only do we have the most cellar doors in the country, we also have the highest quality wine. Personally, we're partial to this McLaren Vale label.

5. The Best Beer in Australia
Wine not your thing? Adelaide is the cheapest city in Australia to buy a pint of beer! Grab a locally brewed Coopers while you're here.
6. Fabulous Food
Something else that is the biggest and the best in the Southern Hemisphere is the Adelaide Central Market! Adelaide is a foodies paradise and if you like to brunch, we've got you covered.

7. The Perfect Size
It's small but it's mighty and it's super easy to get around. The city was designed in a grid-like pattern so it's almost impossible to get lost. Locals will also tell you that you can get anywhere is Adelaide in under 20 minutes!

8. Amazing Architecture
We've got some beautiful architecture in Adelaide and this Fringe, the iconic buildings on North Terrace are going to be transformed into a living canvas of lights.

9. Sportspeople
More AFL players are born in SA than any other state. Is there something in the water? You'll have to visit to find out!

10. The Best Price
The city itself in inexpensive in every way, from transport to eating out to accomodation. Adelaide is an affordable place to holiday. The Adelaide Fringe also puts on a number of family friendly free events as part of the Fringe Presents... program.
