Due to its many colonial-era buildings that have been well-preserved, Adelaide has a distinctly European flair. Adelaide was a planned city developed around a grid that is now encircled by a main road, making the city borders plain to see. Once known as the “City of Churches,” Adelaide has reinvented itself as a sophisticated and multicultural city serving up world-class cuisine, memorable art and live music, and a fantastic festival schedule — fully surrounded by a wine region that produces award-winning wines. Additionally, Adelaide is an unofficial capital of Australian football and cricket, both of which are played in the Adelaide Oval Stadium. Adelaide also hosts the annual Tour Down Under, the biggest cycling race in the Southern Hemisphere.
