Escorted Rail Tours to Adelaide

The City of Churches, established in 1836

Adelaide, the 'City of Churches' is Australia's fifth largest city located in Southern Australia. More than 40,000 years ago the Kaurna Aboriginal people settled the Adelaide Plains, calling it Tandanya (place of the red kangaroo). It was not until 1836 the city was founded and named after Queen Adelaide, wife of King William IV. Adelaide's first settlers were free immigrants from diverse places, including Great Britain, Germany, Poland, Spain, Italy, China, Afghanistan and Scandinavia, all leaving their mark on the city of South Australia.
