Australia - Adelaide and South Australia

Adelaide is the capital of South Australia with a population of 1.3 million in 2013. It was named for Adelaide of Saxe-Meiningen, queen consort to King William IV. The city was founded in 1836 and designed by Colonel William Light who chose its location close to the River Torrens surrounded by the Lofty Ranges. South Australia shares borders with all other mainland states and the Northern Territory. Most of its population live in fertile areas along the south-eastern coast and River Murray.
