City Facts - Adelaide
Founded in 1836, Adelaide is the capital city of South Australia. The city is well-known for hosting a large proportion of Australia's defence industries with 70% of Australian defence companies located there. Its central area and nearby districts contain the majority of financial, commercial and governmental enterprises, in addition to numerous university campuses and research institutions.

Like all Australians, the majority of the 1.1million inhabitants are sports fanatics. For a true cultural experience, pay a visit to the Adelaide Oval when the national team are in town for a game of cricket. The Oval is ideally situated just north of the central business district, so it is the perfect addition to any corporate trip.

Adelaide benefits from an easily navigable gridded street system across the whole of the city, with the exception of a beautiful green belt of land surrounding the centre. The airport is located in West Beach, which lies 8km from the city centre. The majority of the serviced apartments Adelaide has to offer are near transport links of some kind.
