One of Adelaide's sister cities is Christchurch in New Zealand. The cities have similarities, geographically and culturally. Both were well planned British colonial cities and became important centres for the export of primary produce. Both cities are nestled between the coast and hills, and offer a relaxed lifestyle with many outdoor activities. The sister city link was established in 1972.
Both cities have many public parks, gardens and recreational areas. In 1997 Christchurch was named 'Garden City of the World.'
We both even have heritage trams! See an Adelaide heritage tram here. When I visited Christchurch in 2006 I really felt quite at home.
Adelaide's other sister cities are Austin (USA), Georgetown (Malaysia) and Himeji (Japan).
