Located in South Australia, Adelaide has most often been described as a city within a park. In 1837, the visionary, Colonel William Light logically planned for the city to be laid out in broad streets, surrounded by plush, green parkland and set against the rolling hills of the Mount Lofty Ranges.
Today his vision makes Adelaide ideal for walking and resulted in a city that is free of traffic jams. The city houses a top-class golf course, numerous sports fields, beautiful gardens and dozens of picturesque walking and cycling trails.
The River Torrens winds along miles of cycling paths and hiking paths, through gardens, parks, and natural bush and as well as running through the heart of the city and out into the suburbs. When you are ready to slow down the pace, take a tour to the Adelaide Botanic Garden, Hallett Cove Conservation Park, Mount Lofty Summit, Cleland Wildlife Park, and Belair National Park.
On the outskirts of the city, the residential neighborhoods share space with protected natural bushland. These untouched bushland’s bordering the sea, the rivers and he foothills offer a plethora of recreational opportunities as well as protect the environment.
