Location

Prince Alfred College is located in Adelaide, the capital city of South Australia. It is a city of about one million people, noted for its high standard of living, great lifestyle, clean air and mild Mediterranean climate. 

Adelaide has three internationally recognised universities, and is a centre of research and hi-tech manufacturing, focusing on new technologies. There are more than 20,000 overseas university students who study here each year. 

Adelaide is a safe, tolerant and accessible city, with an efficient public transport system and very little traffic congestion. The cost of living is among the lowest in Australia, making it possible for students to enjoy life to the full.

The city centre is surrounded by parklands on all sides and bordered by clean swimming beaches to the west and rolling hills to the east. The world-famous wine region of the Barossa Valley is only an hour’s drive north of the city.
