Adelaide, Australia

Adelaide is the capital and most populous city of the Australian state of South Australia, and is the fifth-largest city in Australia, with a population of more than 1.28 million.(wooooowwww, its almost like whole estonian poluation!) It is a coastal city situated on the eastern shores of Gulf St. Vincent, on the Adelaide Plains.
Named in honour of Queen Adelaide, the German-born consort of King William IV, the city was founded in 1836 as the planned capital for the only freely settled British province in Australia.

Thank you Bea for this lovely postcard, I love churches!:)
