About Adelaide

Welcome to Adelaide


ITA is located in Adelaide, the capital city of South Australia, an attractive city of just over 1.2 million people. Adelaide is renowned as a city of restaurants, quality wine, outdoor eating and a great lifestyle; an ideal place to come and learn the art of hospitality.


Students will find Adelaide safe, friendly, welcoming and easy to find their way around. Small enough to provide an ideal study environment, but when you’re not studying Adelaide offers all the usual options of cinemas, restaurants, nightlife, shopping and sightseeing to keep you entertained. As the Festival City with its world famous cultural events, Adelaide also serves up some not to be missed entertainment. And if you like water sports or just relaxing on the beach, then Adelaide’s kilometres of white sandy beaches will tempt you!
