Adelaide, South Australia

hello, I dont see my city on here too much, so its time to post some of my photos. Most were taken earlier this year when it was a bit warmer. Its winter now so its cold.

Adelaide is slightly different from most other Australian cities as it feels a bit more English. Its home to about 1.12 million people

Very nice bright pictures and some of that architecture is beautiful, some of which wouldn't look out of place in the UK at all! A nice clean diverse city by the looks of it, thanks for these photos.

Never seen a thread about Adelaide here before. Very nice pictures. Lot of different and old buildings. Didn't expect the roman style buildings. Keep them coming

Adelaide looks like the Boston of Australia.

(that's a severe compliment, BTW).

Great pics.

Yeah Sydney is always an eye-opener with all the bums hanging around with their cardboard signs. I think they're attracted there due to its size.

The Bums in Adelaide generally don't beg, they mostly go though street bins for cans and bottles for recycling (10 cents each). You see them walking around with shopping trolleys and garbage bags full of em. The council turns a blind eye as long as they don't make a mess.

Very nice work eastadl. Keep em coming.
