City of Adelaide coat of armsSatellite view is showing Adelaide, most populous city and capital of the Australian state of South Australia (SA). The fifth largest city in Australia is located in the southern area of the Adelaide Plains on the southeastern coast of the country at a natural harbour of Gulf St Vincent, with Fleurieu Peninsula to the south. The city has a population of about 1.3 million residents (est. 2014).

South Australia's administrative, commercial, industrial, and cultural center is the seat of many governmental and financial institutions. The former capital of the British colony of South Australia was founded in 1836 as a planned city, the Adelaide city center is arranged in a grid with five squares and surrounded by a ring of parks, known as the Adelaide Parklands.

Today the city extends with its suburbs 20 km (12 mi) from the coast to the foothills, and from Sellicks Beach in the south to its northern extent at the country town of Gawler which is located 44 km (25 miles) north of Adelaide's city center.

The city is listed in the Top 10 of the World's Most Liveable Cities (rank 9), published in The Economist's "Liveability rankings" index in 2010.

Adelaide is Australia's festival and event capital, and it is well noted for its food, wine and culture, the city is home to the South Australian Museum, and the Tandanya National Aboriginal Cultural Institute, Australia's oldest Indigenous owned and managed multi-arts center.
