Sister City Information

City of Adelaide has a strong foundation of international partnerships through Sister City connections dating back more than 40 years, when we entered an agreement with Christchurch, New Zealand.

We now enjoy relationships with five Sister Cities and two Friendly Cities, across three continents. From diplomat visits to education exchanges, our Sister City partnerships are diverse and dynamic. 

The Sister Cities Movement is a worldwide concept which originated soon after World War II. National Sister Cities efforts were independently started on many different continents, with the same goal: to help develop enduring networks of communications between the cities of the world to cut across boundaries and reduce polarisation among nations.
