One of the Best Places to Live and Study

South Australia is one of the country’s fastest-growing and most lively regions, with a terrifically strong local economy and a staggeringly beautiful natural setting. Studying in South Australia is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity; the state has a lot to offer to everyone who visits or stays there.

The weather in the area has beautiful, long summers and mild winters. In summer, temperatures often soar above 35 degrees Celsius (°C). That’s 95° Fahrenheit! Whether you come from somewhere warm or chilly, you will surely appreciate the warm and inviting scenery.

South Australia attracts so many international students in part because of the high-quality accommodation facilities and an affordable lifestyle. The stable political and economic environment of the region also make it a safe place to get around for international students.  

With its many and frequent festivals held throughout the year, including the Tour Down Under (a cycling event), Adelaide Festival (cinema), Adelaide Fringe (arts) and WOMADelaide (music, arts and dance), the region is well recognised for its commitment towards art and culture. 


South Australia is both the wine and seafood capital of Australia, which is saying something considering how many vineyards and how much coastline Australia has. The South Australian coastline is more than 3,800 kilometres long and is by the towns, beaches, cliffs and jetties.

Where the Murray River meets the sea, the coastline has fantastic fishing, boating and surfing. The Flinders Ranges and Kangaroo Island are unique and spectacular and are places of great cultural, natural and spiritual significance. While there are World Heritage Listed caves at Naracoorte on the Limestone Coast.

Capital City: Adelaide

Adelaide, the capital of South Australia, is a dynamic and pleasant city with spectacular beaches, magnificent green parklands and jaw-dropping blue skies. It features hip cafes, restaurants and anything else you would expect from a bustling and modern Australian city.


Voted as one of Australia’s most liveable cities, there are direct flights to Adelaide from major Asian airports and all Australian capital cities. Coaches and trains service Adelaide, including The Ghan transcontinental train which takes you from the south to the north of Australia, a unique experience that must be experienced at least once.

There are any number of things to enjoy in Adelaide: Indulge in some retail therapy; stroll along North Terrace boulevard and visit art galleries and museums; or visit giant pandas Wang Wang and Funi at the Adelaide Zoo. And if you ever feel like further stretching your boundaries, the Adelaide Hills and beaches are just 20 minutes drive from Adelaide City.

But to truly get the most out of your time in South Australia, spend some time in the country. The Barossa Valley, Clare Valley and McLaren Vale and are all just a short drive from Adelaide. It is God’s Country.
