Adelaide - South Australia

SEE ALSO PANORAMIC VIEWS OF ADELAIDE

Welcome to Adelaide, mate! It’s Australia’s fifth largest city and likes to be known for its once in two-year Festival of Arts, its restaurants and its generally high cultural tone. That’s partially because many of its early citizens were religious dissenters (e.g. from Germany) escaping from persecution in their home countries. They pursued both work and recreation in rationally planned surroundings of dignified elegance, unlike Sydney which sprang from it being a penal settlement.

The planned elegant surroundings of Adelaide [see map of Adelaide] were the vision of one man, Colonel William Light, who as South Australia’s Surveyor-General drew up a brilliant plan in 1836, to which the city has adhered ever since! It is rare in a city to be able to live in a Victorian villa looking onto splendid parkland, walk or cycle to work in the city center, spend the evening at the theatre, then walk home again – but in Adelaide residents can choose to do exactly that. Let us now take you on a quick [Virtual Tour around Adelaide].
