How to have the ultimate girls’ trip in Adelaide, SA

3. Indulge in high tea at The Grand

We don’t know anyone who doesn’t love a sweet treat, so be sure to head down for an ultimate afternoon of indulgence at the iconic Stamford Grand Adelaide.

Famous for its luxurious afternoon high tea that will have you feeling like you’ve teleported to Paris, this stunning French-inspired spread features a variety of sweet and savoury treats including cream scones, jam, quiche lorraine, macarons, l’Opera cake, madeleines, duck pate and so much more!

Moreover, treat yourself to endless cups of the finest Dilmah teas that balance every dish perfectly. The Classical French High Tea at The Grand is certainly worth the money and is so decadent and delicious, we couldn’t fault anything!

PS: Not that you’d bring your kids on a girls’ weekend away but if you are so inclined, they also offer a kids’ high tea option which is absolutely adorable.
