Adelaide was actually settled by decent people, and not by criminals like most cities on the east coast.
On December 31st, 1836, Colonel William Light, as surveyor-general of South Australia, selected the new city centre of Adelaide. Settlement began the next year in 1837.

It must be a good life in Adelaide, the London based Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU)'s survey in 2005 ranks Adelaide nr. 6 out of 130 cities surveyed worldwide. The EIU assessed the level of hardship for expatriates in the 130 cities, using 12 factors including housing, education, recreational activities, health, climate and terrorism.
