Adelaide

Adelaide - the compact and elegant capital of South Australia is the fifth-largest city in the country with population above a million people.
First impression of the city is very pleasant. Thanks to a mild Mediterranean climate with a 15 C average daily temp. in winter and a 29 C average over the summer period, easy access to the ocean and beaches, wonderful historic buildings, 29 green parks and of course festivals, Adelaide became a very nice place to stay.

Continuation of Rundle mall is Rundle Street which is a "trendy" place.
By contrast if you walk opposite direction on the Rundle mall you'll get to Hindley Street - drug-users and prostitute place, quite dangerous for tourists!
Some people told us Hindley Street is not dangerous any more, but we've seen two armed policeman there, it should be a reason for them to be there!

The city is situated among the hills. It's a popular place to delight beautiful sunset.


One more good spot to taste Adelaide. The monument of Colonel William Light stands in the place where in 1836 he made a decision to settle up a city.


Here are the photos from New Years Eve in Adelaide. People comes out to the streets to celebrate the New Year. The streets are full of loud music and there is a feeling of carnival.
The clock on City Council Tower bell midnight and there are fireworks - not as spectacular as in Sydney, but also very nice.
