South Australia 

South Australia is often referred to as the Festival State because of the many art and cultural festivals, as well as major sporting events held throughout the year.
Around 90 per cent of the state's population resides in coastal areas with many attractions, holiday and recreation activities happening near or in the water, especially in summer.
South Australia's capital city, Adelaide, is consistently ranked one of the most liveable cities in the world and is among the most affordable capital cities in Australia.
In 2014, The Economist rated Adelaide as the equal fifth most liveable city in the world. It is internationally regarded for providing enviable work and lifestyle choices and a safe living environment.
Adelaide is:
  • A relaxed coastal city of 1.2 million people with a Mediterranean climate
  • Safe, open and tolerant, repeatedly ranked among the world's top 10 most liveable cities
  • At the centre of Australia's air, road and rail networks
  • A city of internationally regarded education, training and research centres and institutions.
  • Adelaide is also a gateway to the Outback, the dramatic Flinders Ranges, the natural beauty of Kangaroo Island, the River Murray and the many South Australian vineyards that produce some of the world’s great wines.
The combination of low living costs, some of mainland Australia's most affordable housing, great amenities and entertainment events enables Adelaide to offer an enticing mix of great lifestyle and employment options.
South Australia’s economic performance has been steadily improving, and there are plenty of things to see and do​ in Adelaide and around the State.
