  Getting around

Adelaide Airport is located on the eastern shores of Gulf St Vincent, about 6 km west of the Central Business District (CBD) of the City of Adelaide, on Sir Richard Williams Avenue. Driving time from the airport depends on the time of day and roads can get quite congested in peak traffic.

The Adelaide Airport car rental desks are located on the ground level of the terminal adjacent to the baggage claim area. Parking for car rentals is located on the ground floor of the multi-level car park.

There are no toll roads, and the city has a good road infrastructure with abundant parking space.

  Tips and advice for renting a car at Adelaide Airport


In urban areas, the default speed limit is 50 kph and on highways it is 100 kph, unless otherwise sign-posted. Police officers conduct speed checks via speed cameras and radar along all types of roads.


You must be 18 to hire a car and be in possession of a full Australian or International driving licence.


Even on major regional roads, service stations and roadside cafes may close overnight. If you are planning a long drive at night, make sure you know where and when you are going to get fuel.


Australia is home to some amazing wildlife, but keep an eye out for kangaroos, emus, and other animals when driving in rural areas.


The driver and all passengers must wear a seatbelt or child restraint at all times.


Keep left on the road, don’t use your mobile while driving, and never drink and drive.
