Adelaide Plains

The Adelaide plains is the area of land between the Mount Lofty Ranges and Gulf St. Vincent. In 1836 this area was viewed favourably by Colonel William Light as a possible area to create the South Australian colony’s main settlement. This was due to the regions relatively high rainfall, and the numerous rivers and creeks that crossed it. Today, this area is the location of the city of Adelaide as well as some of the states most productive agricultural land.
