The Adelaide lifestyle
Known as 'The City of Churches', Adelaide is only the fifth largest city in Australia, home to around 1.1 million people. The city was originally planned by the first surveyor-general of South Australia, Colonel William Light. He arranged Adelaide in a grid, with a ring of parks known as the Adelaide Parklands – a backdrop that, complemented by the city’s beaches and nearby hills, gives Adelaide a unique elegance, charm and intimate ambience.
You’ll find Adelaide’s a city with more than its fair share of cultural, sporting and entertainment events and venues, as well as an abundance of restaurants, cafes and bars. Given all this, perhaps it’s unsurprising that Adelaide was rated as one of the world's top cities for its lifestyle, living standards and affordable housing in 2008, according to the Economist Intelligence Unit's Liveability Survey.
