The City of Adelaide is a small city with a big backyard that over 24,000 people call home and is visited by over 300,000 people every day. It’s a place where a vibrant arts and cultural scene sits in harmony with history and heritage, and thoughtful innovation blends with nature. Where little faces have big smiles and there’s time to do the things you love.  Adelaide is a city shaped by stories. A rich collection of stories, infinite in number. The first of these stories were created by the Kaurna people – the traditional owners of the land on which Adelaide sits. These stories are now interwoven with the stories of all the people who choose to live, work, study or spend time in the city. Old or new, each story is unique because the reasons that hold or draw someone to Adelaide are different for every person.
