Adelaide is dynamic and inspiring, cultured and warm city. Stylish, yet casual; artistic, but very down-to-earth. It’s large enough to be cosmopolitan yet compact enough to avoid big-city congestion, inconvenience – and cost. Renowned across Australia as being the festival city, Adelaide’s appreciation of the arts goes hand in hand with a penchant for good food and fine wine.
