The City of Adelaide was designed with enjoyment in mind.

Colonel William Light's vision of a grid with large public squares, wide streets and an encircling belt of Park Lands, makes Adelaide the perfect spot to explore by foot.

Adelaide's grid pattern makes it easy to navigate and its compactness makes walking a great way to get around and explore the city.

South Terrace to North Terrace is about a 20-minute stroll and East Terrace to West Terrace can be walked in less than 30 minutes.

Along the way there are plenty of sights to stop and see.
