The capital city of the Australian state of South Australia, Adelaide is a place of natural beauty and simple elegance. Its city centre has wide flat streets, and is surrounded on all sides by parklands. The urban landscape is highlighted with many elegant colonial buildings, museums, churches and galleries. Adelaide is noted for its many festivals and sporting events, its food and wine, its long beachfronts, and its large defence and manufacturing sectors.

Adelaide is situated on the Fleurieu Peninsula overlooking the Gulf St. Vincent, bordered by the low lying Mount Lofty Ranges to the east giving the suburbs a roughly north-south rectangular layout. In terms of population, at around 1.3 million (2014), it is the fifth largest of the Australian capital cities. South Australia is a uniquely highly centralised state; over 75 percent of the state's population is contained in the metropolitan capital of Adelaide.
