Living in Adelaide

Why come to Adelaide?


Adelaide is a cosmopolitan, multicultural city of about 1.3 million people who often welcome new residents and visitors from around the world. It is regularly ranked among the world’s 5th most liveable cities. In recent years everyone from the New York Times to Lonely Planet has named it one of the places tourists should visit.

The city of Adelaide is safe, clean, stable and well planned, with a high standard of living and a great range of services. Adelaide also offers an exciting program of arts, cultural and sporting events and a vibrant dining scene. Well recognised as one of the most affordable cities in Australia, Adelaide provides opportunity for quality engagement with all aspects of lifestyle.

Access to the city and other locations are by reliable public transport systems which include bus, train and, in some locations, tram.

Adelaide’s Mediterranean climate means we spend a lot of time outdoors.

There are plenty of clean beaches just 20 minutes west of the CBD, scenic hills to the east, and many recreation parks providing opportunities to meet kangaroos and koalas.

Most importantly, Adelaide is recognised as an education city that amply caters for the needs of international students. The city has produced an impressive list of high achievers, from Nobel Laureates and Rhodes Scholars to world-leading researchers.
