South Australia sets an example for the country and the world

First-time visitors to Australia are often drawn to the big city attractions of Sydney and Melbourne or the fabulous beaches of Queensland’s Gold Coast.

For me, Adelaide’s greatest attraction is a huge market right in the city’s centre.
