Welcome to Our City!

Sun-drenched South Australia is the driest of all Australian states with expansive semi-desert areas in the far outback. You won’t find
many of us living in the desert though!

South Australia’s capital city Adelaide is home to 80% of the region’s population of roughly 1.65  million.

Adelaide is home to many attractions which cater for a range of interests, so you will never be short of things to see, places to go and activities to get involved in. 

Adelaide boasts everything from historic landmarks and monuments such as Parliament House and the Old Adelaide Gaol, to Haighs
Chocolate Visitors Centre, where you can indulge in a sweet treat or two!

Put on your walking shoes for some serious shopping through Adelaide's vibrant malls and shopping strips or explore Adelaide's zoos, botanical gardens, art galleries and museums.
