ADELAIDE CBD

Get to know
the area

Shaking off its sleepy town vibe, Adelaide City has been busy transforming itself into a vibrant, creative and sophisticated metropolis. Famous for its annual events, festivals, arts and culture scene, it offers all the benefits of big-city living with a refreshingly laid-back feel.

Lifestyle

A city defined by its beautiful parklands, buildings and academic institutions, Adelaide has been shaking things up in recent times. A burgeoning foodie, small bar and arts scene is making the rest of Australia (and beyond) sit up and take notice.

With well - planned streets and squares and a connected transport system, Adelaide has an urban vibrancy that resonates from the River Torrens to the Adelaide Park Lands. Undergoing a period of significant development, the city's ever-changing skyline is neatly contained within a grid of tree-lined terraces. The unique layout and flat terrain makes the city extremely accessible on foot, and cyclists make use of the ever-improving bike lane network. The city is also serviced by an integrated public transport system including a free tram that runs through the centre of town.

While Rundle Mall remains the premier shopping precinct, the newly redeveloped Adelaide Oval has sparked renewed interest in the Riverbank Precinct and a number of food and entertainment spots have popped up in response. Peel, Leigh and Gouger Streets in the West End are bursting with new bars and artisan outlets, while Ebenezer Place, Vardon Avenue and Rundle Street to the East offer cutting-edge fashion and some of Adelaide’s best alfresco cafés, restaurants and wine bars.

Adelaide City also plays host to a series of events and festivals through out the year – the Adelaide Fringe Festival, WOMADelaide and the Santos Tour Down Under to name a few. There is also a huge choice of leisure and recreational activities on offer; endless walking and cycling trails and an abundance of beautiful gardens and open spaces set within the Adelaide Park Lands.

Away from the hustle and bustle of the central business district, the city’s south-west and south-east corners offer a much quieter way of life. You can shut the door on the big smoke and retreat into your home while still enjoying access to all that the city has to offer.

Neighbours

Adelaide City attracts the young, dynamic and creative. There’s a large student population, living within walking distance of Adelaide's highly-regarded universities, niche colleges and educational facilities. The city is also a magnet for young professionals and creative types who enjoy being centrally located and living amongst the action. More and more retirees, baby boomers and empty nesters are moving back into the city to capitalise on the city’s conveniences.
