|The most understated of Australia's state capitals, Adelaide is a charming, medium-sized city with a contemporary edge. Its dry, Mediterranean climate means that most visitors will spend much of their time outside, wandering the central business district (CBD) and its surrounding green belt of parks and gardens, or perhaps dining alfresco at one of the city's many outdoor restaurants and sidewalk cafes.
Occasionally referred to as the City of Churches, Adelaide offers all the world-class shopping and fine dining you'd expect of a European metropolis, but without the hassle of most big cities. Transport here is quick and painless, and almost everything is within walking distance of the CBD. Beyond the city limits, a dizzying assortment of wineries, historic townships and unspoilt beaches lie less than an hour away by car.
Adelaide's population of just over a million is known for having a laidback nature - a disposition that belies the city's thriving arts culture. Home to the biannual Adelaide Festival of the Arts, and its grungier offshoot the Adelaide Fringe, the city presents a variety of cultural events year-round to an appreciative local audience as well as many visitors.
