Adelaide is easy to get around. The city rises from the middle of a tree-covered plain, between rolling hills to the east and beaches to the west.
With a population of slightly more than one million, Adelaide is the “20 minute city”. The airport is only seven kilometres from Adelaide city. The Adelaide Hills and major beaches are less than half an hour away by car. That’s what we call liveable!
When Colonel Light founded Adelaide in 1836, he had a simple plan: a one square mile city centre and lots of open space. He laid out the streets in a grid, surrounded by a ring of what are now State Heritage Listed parklands.
Adelaide weather is moderate. Year-round big blue skies mean average winter temperatures of 16 degrees Celsius 28 degrees Celsius in summer. Hot days can be real sizzlers and easily reach 40 degress Celsius.
