Welcome China

Hello and welcome to Adelaide, the beautiful capital city of South Australia!  

The City of Adelaide is the heart of the state's civic, cultural and commercial life.

Built on the traditional lands of the Kaurna people with a rich and deep Aboriginal heritage, Colonel Light planned Adelaide in 1837 with an inspired idea: an active city centre and an abundance of open space with the River Torrens at its heart.
