We wanted to know what makes Adelaide Adelaide. So, we put the feeler out on Facebook the other day to get the lowdown from you, our followers and readers, in the form of “Tell Me You’re From Adelaide Without Telling Me You’re From Adelaide ”.
For those that didn’t see it or actively refrain from reading the comments section on social media, we’ve rounded up some of our favourite responses.
