As well as being the fourth largest state in Australia (covering an area roughly the size of France and Germany combined), South Australia has one of Australia's most liveable capital cities in Adelaide. It is the fifth largest city in Australia, with an estimated population of 1.29 million people.
Founded in 1836, it was built on the principle of a simple grid system with wide streets surrounded by lots of parks. That feeling of space, combined with a strong café and culture society and affordable housing, means that Adelaide consistently figures near the top of 'Best City To Live In' lists.
Famous for the Barossa and Clare valleys, where some of the country's top wines are produced along with many well-known ones such as Jacob's Creek, Wolf Blass and Penfolds. South Australia is also home to the Nullarbor Plain, a vast expanse of flat, semi-arid country that is a former seabed that hugs the coast for over a thousand miles.
With a diverse economy ranging from wine and agricultural produce to manufacturing and mining, people with professional and trade expertise are in strong demand.
