    Neat, cultured, sophisticated and casual – this is self image that Adelaide projects which is an acknowledgment of the days of colonisation bereft the stigma of 'penal colony' just like the flamboyant capital of South Australia, Melbourne. Adelaide is the fifth largest city of Australia and it is fairly proud of its opulent heritage. Free immigrants largely from Britain, are known to have found Adelaide amidst the foothills of the Mount Lofty Ranges and the rugged South coast of Australia. Its layout was intricately formulated and bring forth a welcome sense of order equalized by the lax vibe.

    In the present scenario, the prosperity and the economy of Adelaide is largely built on agriculture and mining. Grand public buildings and magnificent private mansions command a pivotal place amidst the modern high rise buildings and monuments. Further, the gardens, galleries and museums are few of the finest treasures of the city. Art lovers can indulge in activities such as symphony, opera along with the growing live music scene. However, despite all these big city tourist attractions, the wide boulevards and parklands seem equally alluring. Multi cultural flavours infuse the restaurants of Adelaide. Moreover, the city’s festive calendar has vanquished the boring Saturday nights.
