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.
