1 Ade­laide was founded in 1836 by Bri­tish colonists, on the lands of the Kau­rna peo­ple; the lands on which the CBD now sits were called Tan­danya. 2 It was a free set­tle­ment with­out con­victs. Be­cause they de­clared free­dom of re­li­gion it be­came a de­sir­able lo­ca­tion for Luther­ans and other re­li­gious de­nom­i­na­tions to set­tle – which is why it’s called ‘City of Churches’. 3 The per­sist­ing pock­ets of Bavar­ian cul­ture such as Hah­n­dorf, and the Ger­manic name of many fam­i­lies and winer­ies, re­flects the early set­tle­ment of 500 Luther­ans, by agree­ment of a Cap­tain Hahn – who ne­go­ti­ated for them to live rent-free for a year. 4 The area around Ade­laide – the Barossa, Ade­laide Hills and Mclaren Vale – pro­duces no less than half of all Aus­tralia’s wine. 5 Ade­laide has had a huge in­flu­ence on Aus­tralia’s food cul­ture, thanks to in­di­vid­ual chefs like Phillip Searle, Mark Best, Chris­tine Man­field, Mag­gie Beer and Cheong Liew.
