Living in Adelaide

So what’s it like living in Adelaide? Whatever you know about South Australia’s capital one thing’s for sure: there’s never a dull moment here. Once dubbed ‘The City of Churches’, the city has redefined itself as ‘The City of Festivals’ – with a vibrant arts scene that includes the ever-popular Fringe Festival. Adelaide enjoys a healthy reputation as a centre for sports, wine, and fine dining – offering visitors and residents the perfect mix.   

Whether relaxing in the botanical gardens or watching the ocean from a sun-drenched promenade, Adelaide enjoys a unique position. Just 20 minutes from the CBD you’ll find yourself amongst rolling hills, on the beach, or strolling through award-winning vineyards.  

With stunning architecture, lush gardens and a flood of museums, cafes and restaurants, 1.1 million people enjoy calling Adelaide home.Tour Down Under
