Adelaide

Adelaide is a city of light - the day-light can be intense and the skies are often a brilliant cloudless blue - for a visit remember to pack your sun glasses.

This exhibition takes an alternative view - and presents images of Adelaide by night-light.

Adelaide is the driest city in Australia, it has dozens of wonderful beaches of golden sand, and expansive great deserts to the north.

Adelaide was designed by Anglo-Malay Captain William Light (1786-1839) as a garden city with the CBD a grid of wide roads and five large public squares, all surrounded by 700 hectares of parkland.

Adelaide is Australia's most liveable city (State of Australian Cities Report, 2012) and the world’s fifth most liveable city (Global Liveability Survey, 2012).

Adelaide was settled by the South Australian Corporation as what has been called a “paradise of dissent” (Douglas Pike, 1957). Adelaide was founded on 28th December 1836 (after Sydney, Hobart, Brisbane, Perth and Melbourne) to manifest a Utopian vision of George Fife Angas (1789-1879). Adelaide has been described as “the city of churches” and from the outset it offered a refuge from the religious persecution and intolerance in Europe. Such early immigrants included German-speaking Lutherans from Silesia, Prussia (now Poland).

The city is named after Queen Adelaide (1792-1849).

Adelaide is the capital city of South Australia.

The population is 1.23 million (2011 census).

The city of Wuhan in Hubei, China, is a sister city to Adelaide.
