As South Australia’s seat of government and commercial centre, Adelaide is the site of many governmental and financial institutions. Adelaide is noted for its many festivals and sporting events, its food and wine, its long beachfronts, and its large defence and manufacturing sectors.   

More than 450 bird species call South Australia home.  From urban areas, the Murray River floodplains, mallee scrub, forest and woodlands, lagoons, wetlands and the arid Outback.   The Sulphur-crested Cockatoo, Little Corella, Long-billed Corella, Rainbow Lorikeet, Noisy Miner, Grey Currawong, the White-backed Magpie and the Australian White Ibis may be seen in and around Adelaide.  The kookaburra has adapted well to urbanisation.
