About Adelaide South Australia

Adelaide, the capital of South Australia, is home to around 1.2 million people. A diverse range of landscapes surround the city, including green parklands, the Mount Lofty Ranges and coastal beaches.

Referred to as the wine and festival capital of Australia, Adelaide is a great place to experience the culture and convenience of a nice sized city without many of the frustrations of a larger city. Adelaide is surrounded by parklands, together with a range of historic buildings, wide streets, various street cafes and restaurants and shops of all descriptions. Adelaide has a diverse cultural mix that guarantees the food is sensational. Accommodation is competitively priced.

Adelaide is famous for its many Festivals, Adelaide Festival, Adelaide Fringe and WOMADelaide (to name just three events). Sports’ fans will love the award-winning Santos Tour Down Under and Clipsal 500 V8 car race. March is event season when the weather in Adelaide is at its best.

Adelaide’s city centre has been well planned and is made up of a grid of streets and various squares. Being only one mile square makes it extremely accessible. The main street (King William Street) runs directly from north to south of the city through Victoria Square, which is at the heart of the city.
