The Murdoch-owned Sunday Times bestowed SA’s “small and perfectly formed” capital pride of place on its list of desirable international residential destinations, which also included Adelaide’s sister city Austin, Texas.
“Adelaide is one of Australia’s best-kept secrets, full of elegant tree-lined boulevards, homes with lacy verandas and beautiful parks and gardens,” the Sunday Times gushed.
“It has the prettiest cricket ground in the world — the locals are obsessed with the sport — and one of the starriest night skies.”
The piece called our fair city “the perfect package”, founded as “the planned capital of a freely settled British province”.
“It is a city with a colonial past, but an increasingly hip future,” it enthused.
“The central food market will satisfy every culinary craving, while the vine-clad Barossa Valley is on the doorstep. It also has the lowest house prices of any Australian main state capital.”
