Adelaide is spread out on either side of the Torrens River, between Gulf St Vincent on the west and the Mount Lofty Ranges to the east. With the relaxed and friendly atmosphere of a country town, its streets are laid out in a series of easy to follow grids, similar to Christchurch. Adelaide was settled in 1836 on the site of present day Glenelg, however, the current location of the city has two major centres, Adelaide Central and North Adelaide which are surrounded by beautiful parklands.Referred to as the "city of churches", Adelaide has a lovely peaceful grace and elegance, as well as a certain refinement that gives it a distinctly Mediterranean feel. Everytime I have been in Adelaide it's been hot. soooooooo hot
