Adelaide is the fifth-most populous city of Australia. It is also the capital city of the state of South Australia. The demonym Adelaidean is used to denote the city and its residents.

Its metropolitan area extends 20 km (12 mi) from the coast to the foothills, and stretches 96 km (60 mi) from Gawler in the north to Sellicks Beach in the south. It has a population of 1.3 million people. Many people who migrate to Adelaide are grateful for it Mediterranean climate which is super pleasant for people seeking to build a new life in Australia.

Adelaide’s beautiful climate blended with the lowest house prices of any Australian major state capital makes a it a very lucrative as well as attractive place for migrants seeking to improve their lifestyles. Adelaide is Australia’s most affordable big city. The rapidly growing economy of Adelaide needs the skills of around 5,000 new people from overseas each year.

The city is planned well which can be seen by the many rectangular blocks with lots of straight roads and green spaces. The suburban streets of Adelaide are broad and uncluttered which means there is enough space for everybody to park their car off-street in driveways and/or garages, which makes life in Adelaide a heaven for car owners than in most other cities of over a million people. Adelaide has amazingly pleasant places to live in. The price of housing will vary depending on your choice of location for settlement in the city just like in any other city.
