Adelaide Travel Guide

Introduction

Adelaide is a city of churches, though not in any puritanical way, only in numbers, with more of them here than in any other city in Australia. It is also the birthplace of media mogul Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation, owner of the American Fox network, and remains the conglomerate's "spiritual home." The city, in any case, is among the best planned and least hurried of all Australian capital cities, built around spacious squares, crisscrossed by wide streets and ringed by parklands. It has a venerable old university, the third oldest in the country, and a good store of colonial architecture in its downtown. It has its cultural aspirations, with first-class museums and galleries and a slate full of festivals, among them the Adelaide Festival of Arts, one of the world's major celebrations of the arts. The city also sits on the doorstep of Australia's most famous wine regions, the Claire and Barossa valleys, from which the world's most promising Shiraz is sourced, thus making Adelaide an ideal base for Australia's choir of wine snobs.
