Adelaide – one of the world’s most liveable cities

An abundance of cultural and sporting options, fantastic food and wine, a sunny climate encouraging an alfresco lifestyle, affordable housing, low crime, less traffic and friendly people all combine to make Adelaide a great place to live. In fact, the Economist Intelligence Unit consistently ranks it as one of the world’s most liveable cities. Founded in 1836 and named after Queen Adelaide, the consort of King William IV, the city has a proud history of being at the forefront of social change and for fostering the arts.

Getting around

As Adelaide is quite flat, walking – especially in the CBD – is easy. There is a strong cycling community, plenty of taxis and public transport options include buses, trains and a tram that connects Glenelg to the CBD and then to the inner west.

Beaches, gourmet food, wineries, festivals and sports

Adelaide is nestled between long white sandy beaches to the west and the Mount Lofty Ranges to the east. It’s home to many spectacular events and festivals including the Adelaide Festival, Womadelaide, Tour Down Under, Adelaide Fringe, Tasting Australia and the Clipsal 500 V8 car race. March is known locally as ‘Mad March’ because of its non-stop festivities.

North Terrace is the cultural boulevard with the Museum, Art Gallery and State Library next to each other and the Festival Centre, National Wine Centre and Tandanya National Aboriginal Cultural Institute just a short stroll away. Adelaideis home to a vibrant restaurant scene and a bustling Central Market for fresh produce.The world-renowned Barossa Valley is only 90 minutes drive from the central business district (CBD), while the McLaren Vale wine region is even closer.
