They call it the ‘City of Churches’, but the truth is, there’s way more to South Australia’s vibrant capital city of Adelaide than that. It’s a place that’s known for gorgeous scenery, world-famous wine regions, pristine beaches and a relaxed, easy-going vibe.
Adelaide is one of the greatest cities in the world, and here are our top 5 reasons to prove it.
Adelaide consistently ranks among the most liveable cities in the world. In 2020, it ranked as the most liveable city in Australia and third most liveable in the world. But other than the clean air, great atmosphere and stunning scenery, what makes Adelaide such a great place to live? Let’s get a little more into it.
2) Food and wine
Adelaide is the food and wine capital of Australia. With a diverse range of cuisines, from hearty South African, to mouth-watering Afghan and Ethiopian, to traditional Eastern European food, Adelaide will give you a first-rate education on the flavours of the world. Wine is something all Adelaideans know about: the city is within an hour’s driving distance from the Barossa, McLaren Vale, the Coonawarra, Clare Valley, Adelaide Hills and Langhorne Creek – all of which are globally acclaimed wine regions.
3) Traffic and easy lifestyle
Living in Adelaide is so easy. ‘Peak hour traffic’ in Adelaide means it takes an extra five minutes to get where you’re going. Adelaide is locally referred to as the ‘20-minute city’, based on one’s ability to get from the west to east, or the north to the south, within roughly 20 minutes. Don’t believe us?

OK, so you’ve probably heard of ‘Bondi’ and ‘Noosa’ – but Australia’s best beaches are secretly located in Adelaide. Pristine golden sands, calm waters and plenty of space between umbrellas is the description that can be used for all of Adelaide’s beaches, even on the hottest of summer weekends. Glenelg, Henley and Semaphore are some of our favourites in the metro area, with other amazing beaches like Port Willunga and Normanville being a little further out.
5) Housing market
Adelaide has one of the most affordable housing markets in Australia. The median rent price is just over $400, making it the cheapest in the country. House prices are also some of the lowest. So, if you want a nicer house in a nicer, more convenient area, be sure to put Adelaide at the top of your list of cities to check out in Australia.
