As one of the most liveable cities in the world, Adelaide is designed for life. The city’s rich stories were first created by the Kaurna people of the Adelaide Plains, which continue to be interwoven with the stories of those who now call Adelaide home.

There is an abundance of rich community, cultural and wellbeing experiences - right on your doorstep. Get connected with the neighbourhood, eat your way through the city’s delicious foodie scene, and explore the Park Lands as your very own playground.
