Adelaide is the capital city of South Australia and has a population of 1.3 million. Adelaide is located on the south eastern coast of Australia and is well known for its arts and cultural festivals, beautiful beaches, great wine districts, and easy lifestyle. Although we travel to Adelaide during the summer break for North American universities, we are actually in Adelaide during their late Fall-early Winter seasons, near the end of the first semester for the University of Adelaide students. Adelaide has a Mediterranean climate with average high temperatures during June-July in the low 60s and low temperatures in the mid 40s. For more information about Adelaide, check out the Adelaide City Council web page and Explore the City and for more information about South Australia, and nearby National Parks.
