Adelaide is the capital city of South Australia and is a relatively small city covering around 1.827 km. When he founded the city in 1836 Colonel Light had a simple concept in mind: a one-square-mile city centre and a lot of open space. The result of this is modern day Adelaide, a city with a square grid surrounded by a ring of state heritage listed parklands. The city enjoys year-round sunny skies with an average winter temperature of 16°C, and average temperatures of 28 °C in summer. Adelaide has fantastic transport links which allow passengers in port to easily discover the city. The shuttle tram in the heart of the city is free and the city even boasts the world’s first solar powered bus, ‘tindo’. The city also lends itself to walking and cycling due to the flat streets and easy navigation. You can even make use of free bike hire to help you get the most out of the city. Although Adelaide is proud to be an urban city, it is also only a short hop to Kangaroo Island, where you can see Australia’s native species in their natural habitat as well as the little Sahara.
