Adelaide is a beautiful garden city rich with parks and greenery, stunning architecture, exciting nightlife and plenty to see and do.
This is a city of restaurants, pubs, cafes, fresh food and fine wine. Adelaide's million or so people love to have a good time and host festivals for everything from the arts, and wine and food, to cycling and car racing.
Set beside the Torrens River between the Adelaide Hills and the Gulf of St Vincent, Adelaide is probably Australia's best-preserved capital city.
Designed by Colonel William Light in 1836, the city centre is laid out on a square mile grid of wide streets with gracious colonial architecture surrounded by 930 hectares of parklands.
