After that, we had a walk by the River Torrens. There are 3 rivers that surround Adelaide, but the Torrens river is the one that runs through the city. There are a lot of parks and green spaces in Adelaide, making it a very pretty city to walk round. Along the river, there are cycle paths and always seems to be at least 2 people jogging. Australia is big on its sport. Rowing is another popular pastime with many rowing clubs, especially from the universities, of which there are 3 at the moment, with a 4th to be built soon.
The main square in the city centre is Victoria Square. This is where to catch the tram from to go to Glenelg. It is also where there is a big fountain/sculpture that was created to commemorate the Queen's visit in the 1960s. There are plenty of benches or grass to sit on and watch the world go by.
