The city of Adelaide rises from tree-covered plains and is hedged by the Gulf St Vincent and the low-lying Mount Lofty Ranges. It stretches 20 km from the coast to the foothills and was named Australia’s most liveable city in 2011 and 2012.
The city was founded in 1836 and was named in honour of Adelaide of Saxe-Meiningen, queen consort to King William IV. While Adelaide was the planned capital for a freely settled British province in Australia, the Kaurna people are still recognised as the traditional owners of the land.
