International Connections

The City of Adelaide has a strong foundation of international partnerships through Sister City and Friendly City connections dating back more than 40 years, when we entered an agreement with Christchurch, New Zealand.

Adelaide has five Sister City relationships and two Friendly City relationships across three continents. From diplomat visits to education exchanges, our Sister City and Friendly City partnerships are diverse and dynamic.
