Adelaide is the state capital city of South Australia, and a city that regularly wins liveability surveys. With a much smaller population than other of Australia’s state capital cities (for example, a quarter of Sydney’s population) people we have spoken to say Adelaide is a great place to live because it’s “easy”. Getting around the city is quick and all activities and attractions are within close proximity of the city – in fact South Australia’s official tourism site calls Adelaide the “20 minute city”.
