Adelaide was laid out in a square mile grid of wide streets with gracious colonial architecture. It is compact city making it easy walking and surrounded it with 930 hectares of parklands. The pleasant climate is perfect for leisure hours on its beaches, the Torrens River and at sidewalk cafes.

Suburban shopping precincts such as King William Road and North Terrace are also popular and fashionable.
