A little bit about Adelaide
Adelaide is paradise for the navigationally challenged: the city has grid-like streets and is centred on four main squares, with a fifth smack-bang in the centre. The first Australian capital not settled by British convicts, Adelaide boasts pristine inner-city beaches and kilometres of uninterrupted coastline. A relatively short drive in the opposite direction leads to the Barossa Valley, home to Australia's world-renowned vineyards and decorated wineries, a favourite amongst tourists and locals alike. Often given a hard wrap by other Australian cities, Adelaide has a reputation for being slow and sleepy... but as the curtain raises on this culturally festive city, international arts, theatre, music and sporting events are electrifying the South Australian capital.
