There are nine new hotels in the pipeline, one of which will probably become the city’s new tallest building, and almost 2,000 rooms between them. But, this isn’t enough.

Adelaide doesn’t have enough space to accommodate all tourists flowing in the city. This is good news for residents, however, who might be able to enjoy a few years of premium prices when listing their homes on sites like Airbnb.

Adelaide is getting the attention it deserves with a rapid increase in international tourists, rather than the domestic travellers that have long been its main guests.

 QantasLink came to Kangaroo Island in 2017, and starting in December Adelaide will become a new hub for day trips to the island.

 The Adelaide Convention Centre Upgrades. The first purpose-built convention centre in Australia will complete its long-awaited and much-needed expansions in 2017.

 Adelaide’s BioMed health precinct becomes one of the Southern Hemisphere’s major science centers, attracting professionals as guests and residents from around the world.

In 2015, Adelaide was ranked as the world’s fifth most livable city, according to The Economist Intelligence Unit.

Thousands of rooms will be added between 2017 and 2020, but it looks like it still won’t be enough. The city’s always been very dependent on its staples, including peak time tourism and the internationally regarded wineries, but as the city shifts to year-round tourism, visitors might start feeling crowded.
