South Australia has launched a website with all the information visitors will need to get the most out of their trip.
There's information on the historic Adelaide Oval, events around town, accommodation, places of worship and a guide to halal and vegetarian food around the city.
For those new to the country, there's even a guide to some fair dinkum slang visitors might hear during their stay. Check it out.
Tourism Minister Leon Bignell said that the site will be a one-stop-shop for information, especially catering to international visitors.
"The February 15 blockbuster, which is India's opening match of the ICC Cricket World Cup, has been a sell-out for months, and city hotels and retailers are preparing for a huge influx of cricket fans for this major event," Minister Bignell said.
"We want to make sure World Cup visitors don't just go to the cricket. We want them to take the opportunity to experience everything out state has to offer including our welcoming regions, great landscapes, and our premium food and wine.
