Adelaide is the fifth- largest city in Australia set between rolling hills on one side and coastal beaches on the other. With a population of just over 1 million people, the city is planned around a grid system so although it may be smaller than other capital cities, it is perfectly formed. Famous for being the wine capital of Australia, for the Adelaide Writer's Festival and for the access to the coastal beauty of nearby Kangaroo Island as well its family friendly café culture, Adelaide and its surrounds have a lot to offer.
