Beautiful city Adelaide - a living monument to the energy and insight of Colonel William Light, the man who founded and designed this city. He was a soldier, artist, merchant, explorer and builder of the city, whose foundation was the crown of his magnificent career.
He was appointed Inspector-General of South Australia in 1836. His main task was to build a new capital of the colony. For the construction of the city he chose a small island in the eastern Gulf of St. Vincent, who so admired the researcher to. Barker, watching him from the summit of Mount Lofty five years ago.
His selection was endorsed by no means all. However, Light, has promised to build a safe haven, to ensure the supply of fresh water, as well as hand out large tracts of settlers on the plains of Adelaide. In March 1837 he graduated from the planning of the city, including parks, which were to encircle the entire city. Colonel Light named the city "Adelaide".
Since the city was originally a carefully planned, he quickly grew and became one of the centers of commercial and cultural life.
