Adelaide is one of the world’s most liveable cities, perfectly positioned just a short drive from some of Australia’s most unique, globally-renowned regions, so whether you choose city, suburban or country life, South Australia offers something for everyone.
South Australia is one of the more affordable places to live and work in Australia. Homes are affordable with more than two-thirds of residents owning their homes. Adelaide continues to be one of the most cost-competitive markets for setting up business and leasing office space, and the regions are even more affordable.
Adelaide was designed for convenience. Our city planners surrounded the central business district with parklands and established a grid network of broad roads. As Adelaide grew, many of the outlying suburbs also embraced the grid pattern, so today, traffic moves freely and easily. Adelaide prides itself as a manageable city where you can spend more time where you want to be – not just getting there.
Driving Driving is the most popular way to get around Adelaide and South Australia. Our roads are well planned and maintained and our driving rules are designed to keep us all safe.
Public Transport Adelaide's public transport network is called Adelaide Metro and is made up of:
- buses and trains to metropolitan suburbs and the city
- free buses around the central business district
- a tram service between Glenelg and Adelaide Entertainment Centre
- an O-Bahn servicing the north-eastern suburbs.
Wherever you need to be, there is a public transport option to get you there.
Regional Travel South Australia also offers other regional public transport systems, both buses and rail, as well as flights to outer regions to speed up travel time when required. Overall however, South Australia is a very ‘driveable’ state with most regions accessible by car.
