SOUTH AUSTRALIA - ADELAIDE

Adelaide is the capital of South Australia, and is the fifth-largest city in Australia and was named in honour of Queen Adelaide. As the centre of a planned colony of free immigrants, Adelaide promised it's inhabitants civil liberties and freedom from religious persecution.

Located on the Torrens River, the area was originally inhabited by the Kaurna people. Adelaide was designed in a grid layout with wide boulevards and large public areas. It is a city known for it's beaches, restaurants and festivals such as the Adelaide Fringe Festival and WOMAD.

Education is an important part of the city's economy, with the South Australian Government marketing it as a "Learning City".

The Adelaide region is known as the wine capital of Australia. Within an hour's drive of the city, there are some of the finest vineyards in the southern hemisphere.
