Discover Adelaide

Adelaide is a cultural destination with many different nationalities, foods, festivals and events. It is home to some of the country’s best beaches, wine regions and parklands.


Adelaide is a city shaped by stories. The first of these stories were created by the Kaurna people of the Adelaide Plains, which remain alive today and are interwoven with the stories of all the people who choose to live, work and study in Adelaide. The city is a celebration of diversity and inclusion with a strong sense of community.

Bringing Families

Before you decide to bring your family to Australia, you should also consider the following:
  • The cost of supporting a family in Australia is very high and it is important to ensure that you bring sufficient funds to support them financially.
If you would like to bring your children to Australia with you, you must be aware that School - age dependents of international students studying on a student visa must undertake formal schooling while they are in Australia.


You will need to provisionally enroll your child in a school before you leave your home country and you will normally have to pay the school fees one semester in advance. The school will issue an electronic Confirmation of Enrolment Form (eCoE) stating the program and its duration, so that you can obtain the appropriate visa for your child.
