Adelaide, the capital city of South Australia, has enjoyed a special Sister City relationship with George Town for over 45 years. A deeply engrained appreciation for heritage and history, arts and culture, and the love of amazing food binds the two cities.

Stretching across the traditional Country of the Kaurna people, Adelaide is a city designed for life. This is reflected in Adelaide’s consistent ranking within The Economist’s top ten most liveable cities in the world. Residents enjoy a lifestyle where wellbeing and balance intersect with a world-renowned festival program and vibrant food and wine offering. As the world’s only city in a park, over 760 hectares of Park Lands serve as the community’s playground.

Students from across the globe have flocked to Adelaide to capitalise on South Australia’s three internationally recognised research universities, The University of Adelaide, the University of South Australia and Flinders University. In 2018, over 23,000 international students were enrolled in South Australian educational institutes. A thriving local economy presents various career opportunities in established and emerging industries.

The city is rich in cultural, community and culinary experiences. Adelaide’s laneways and streets are filled with some of Australia’s best restaurants and boutique bars. The calendar of acclaimed festivals and events encompass some of the biggest in the Southern Hemisphere and draw millions of visitors each year. The city acts as the ultimate springboard to South Australia’s picturesque regional neighbourhood, including pristine beaches and wine regions such as the celebrated Barossa Valley, showcasing the strengths that have established South Australia as one of the wine centres of the world.
