Urban landscape with Torrens River and parklands hemmed by buildings of CBD in city of Adelaide, South Australia

There’s plenty to see in South Australia, and what better place to begin a virtual journey of discovery than in the state’s capital city of Adelaide. The Torrens River was once merely a trickling stream, but with a weir having converted it to a tranquil lake that’s now hemmed with parklands, it is, as photos in this gallery show, a picturesque landscape in the heart of the city.

Other city attractions that are shown here include the historic and elegant Adelaide arcade, the new and the old conservatory in the botanic gardens, colourful fruit and vegetable stalls in the central market, and examples of public art and sculptures that adorn the city – including the Malls Balls. Adelaide is known as the city of churches, and one of the city’s many places of worship, with its ornate stone facade, also features in this gallery.

There’s also an image of a church at the town of MInlaton and other photos show the elegant architecture of the old Port Pirie railway station, a unique stone public toilet building at the coastal town of Scaele, and a glimpse of the main street of Port Broughton.

Well way from the hustle and bustle of the metropolis lies Quorn, a small and historic town in northern South Australia. The images you’ll see here show the architectural grandeur of some of its most prominent 19th century buildings – its old town hall, the old mill and the railway station that is the terminus of the Pichi Richi railway that transports tourists to Quorn, with a nostalgic journey on board a steam train from the coastal city of Port Augusta.

Further north, in the state’s outback region, lies Oodnadatta, with pictures in this gallery showing  the town’ iconic pink roadhouse and the old schoolhouse that’s decorated with murals created by local aboriginal artists,
