Adelaide City Video Guide

Adelaide is the capital of South Australia and is situated close to the Great Southern Ocean.

It is a compact beachside city that is full of churches, stone buildings and beautiful parklands.

This picturesque city is unusual amongst Australian cities in that it was founded by free settlers, not convicts. Those early founders put a lot of passion into creating a better life for themselves even though they were many thousands of miles from home.

Because of that history, Adelaide has a unique sense of refinement and beauty.

One of the most popular places to visit is Victoria Square which is right in the heart of the city. From here, it is easy to wander along the North Terrace District and admire the graceful buildings and museums which echo with stories from the past.

At the South Australian Museum, visitors can learn about the rich cultures that were in the area before the Europeans arrived.

Another great place to visit is the Art Gallery of South Australia where visitors can enjoy the extensive collections of Australian and International Art.

Don’t miss the legendary Adelaide Oval which many claim to be one of the most beautiful cricket grounds in the world.

Adelaide is also well known as a gateway to the famous Barossa and Clair Valleys which are a food and wine lovers paradise.

Many of the early settlers to this area were German and they brought with them grapes from their homeland.The area is now well-known for producing outstanding shiraz and reisling.

While you are in the area, stop at any of the many wineries for a wine tasting or to enjoy a meal using fine local produce.

Adelaide is an old world city that attracts visitors for its elegance and romance.
