Adelaide, South Australia’s cosmopolitan coastal capital, is simply enchanting. It is a treasure trove of shopping, fine arts, gastronomy and outdoor activity. Adelaide is the heart of the world's opal industry, selling gorgeous stones from South Australian mines. Its ring of parkland on the River Torrens is home to renowned museums such as the Art Gallery of South Australia, displaying expansive collections including noted Indigenous art, and the South Australian Museum, devoted to natural history.
The city's Adelaide Festival is an annual international arts gathering with spin-offs including fringe and film events. Lonely Planet’s Best of Travel 2017 has declared South Australia as the best travel experience in the nation for its unspoilt beaches, wild outback, Kangaroo Island, wineries and Mad March’s Festival season. Stay on after the Meeting to hike the Mt. Lofty Ranges or catch a wave off the Fleurieu Peninsula. Indulge your adventurous palate and traipse into nearby wine regions like the famed Barossa Valley to pick up a deliciously drinkable souvenir.
Whatever your interest in respiratory medicine or life outside, the 2018 ASM has something for you to enjoy and we look forward to seeing you in Adelaide in 2018.
