Adelaide

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. Join the café culture lifestyle. Adelaide has a diverse cultural mix that guarantees the food is sensational. Accommodation is competitively priced. We’re proud to be Australia’s wine capital, with numerous regions on our doorstep. You’ll be spoilt for choice. See the 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. We’re proud to be Australia’s most sustainable city, with buildings, transport and many other “green” projects to enjoy. The world-class convention facilities also make Adelaide a great place to do business. You’ll love Adelaide. We do.
