Adelaide, the capital of South Australia, is a small elegant city in a park. Set beside the Torrens River between the Adelaide Hills and the Gulf of St Vincent, it 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. All the inner city highlights are within easy walking distance and it's almost impossible to get lost.

The Mediterranean climate encourages a relaxed and indulgent lifestyle. This is a city of pubs, cafes, restaurants, fine, fresh food and 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 roses, car races and horse trials. Every two years, the entire city becomes a stage for the internationally acclaimed Adelaide Festival of Arts and the Festival Fringe.
