Round 1 Accommodation Information 

Accommodation in Adelaide for March NOLs

The March 9th/10th NOL races are on a long weekend in SA (Adelaide Cup) and also during WOMADelaide music festival and the Adelaide Fringe, so accommodation will be tight and some places may have a 3-night minimum on bookings.

There are caravan parks at Belair, Brownhill Creek, Kingston Park(Brighton) and West Beach near the airport, and Hackney just NE of the city.

The YHA in the city is within walking distance to Central Market which is open Fri/Sat – and there are a number of other backpackers’ in the CBD.

There used to be a number of small YHAs in the hills which could be booked in their entirety but only the one at Mt Lofty is open now. It has 10 beds and it’s not yet booked out for the March long weekend (slight catch is that the key has to be collected from the office in the city during working hours).

Nunyara conference centre at Belair has a number of ‘family room’ units at very reasonable prices http://www.nunyara.com.au/accommodation.html
