Adelaide is the capital city of South Australia. The City of Adelaide has earned a well-deserved 'green' reputation, with a large number of environmentally-friendly initiatives. Adelaide is one of the best planned cities in the world. It is a thriving city with plenty of attractions, restaurants, entertainment and a good base for exploring the surrounding areas. Close to Adelaide are the Adelaide Hills with national parks and reserves. To the west is Adelaide 's coastline with beaches and seaside suburbs. About one hour from Adelaide is the Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale wine regions. Adelaide is not that far from Melbourne where the world famous Melbourne Cup horse race is held once a year in November. In Adelaide, you can enjoy stylish architecture, boutique shopping, sandy swimming beaches, fabulous arts events, nightlife and fine dining.
Its population is slightly over 1 million, which makes it by far the largest city in the otherwise sparsely populated state. It is also known for having the conveniences of a large city, while at the same time being far less cosmopolitan than the “Big Four”. Adelaide is centrally located among the wine regions of McLaren Vale, Barossa Valley and Clare Valley, all of which are within day-trip distance.
Adelaide 's city centre is a contrast of beautiful old buildings and modern super sleek new structures with the river a wonderful escape from the city's bustle. Adelaide city centre measures just one square mile. Wherever you are, it is within the heart of Adelaide.
