Travelers who visit during the Australian summer months and want to get the maximum out of the Australian sun should consider a convertible. When driving mainly through the city, opt for a smaller car, also because petrol prices are considerably higher in Australia than in the US, and a compact car will use up less gas.
Remember that all speed limit signage is given in kilometers per hour in Australia, so make sure you know the conversions (but the speedometer is also on km/h, so it should be no problem). Generally, 50 km/h (31 mph) is allowed in built-up areas and 100 km/h (62 mph) is permitted on rural roads and highways.
Petrol is considerably more expensive in Australia than in the US. The average price per liter lies at AUD$1.45, which is about $4.24 USD per gallon. Most petrol stations in Adelaide will require drivers to go into the station to pay at the counter, where both cash and cards are accepted.
There are various park possibilities in Adelaide, though the easiest is still to opt for a hotel with a parking space included. Alternatively, there is metered on-street parking, where some machines only take the exact amount of coins and no cards, so check beforehand. There are also commercial parking lots like UPark or a P+R or the Adelaide Entertainment Centre Park 'n' Ride, from which public transport operates into the city.
