The capital city and commercial centre of South Australia (and home to 75% of South Australia’s population with over 1.3 million inhabitants), Adelaide is noted for its electronic systems, manufacturing sector (heavily bolstered by defence contracts) and defence industry. The city experiences hot dry summers and short winters (although hail is common), both of which benefit the state’s wine industry. Adelaide boasts a vibrant arts scene and most bars feature nightly live music acts.
