Adelaide Plains

34° 30′ 00″ S 138° 30′ 00″ E / -34.5, 138.5000 Les Adelaide Plains sont une région de l'Australie-Méridionale située entre la chaîne du Mont-Lofty à l'est et le golfe Saint-Vincent à l'ouest. C'est une région de terres fertiles avec des précipitations annuelles d'environ 460 mm par an.

La région peut être grossièrement divisée en 3 parties. La zone sud est maintenant occupée par la ville d'Adélaïde, la capitale de l'Australie-Méridionale. La zone centrale est la zone agricole principale de l'Australie-Méridionale avec de nombreux jardins maraîchers et domaines viticoles, en particulier autour des villes de Virginia et Angle Vale. La zone nord est principalement utilisée pour la culture de céréales comme le blé, l'orge et le canola, et l'élevage des moutons.

Les Kaurnas sont les aborigènes qui vivaient dans la région au moment de l'arrivée des Européens.

Les Adelaide Plains sont traversées par un certain nombre de rivières et de cours d'eaux, souvent à sec au cours de l'été. Ce sont notamment les rivières Onkaparinga, Torrens, Para Little, Gawler, Light et Wakefield.
