The coastal city of Adelaide in southern Australia has thriving arts and culinary scenes and a dream location on the Gulf of St. Vincent at the foot of the Mount Lofty Range. Brian Parkes, CEO of creative hub the JamFactory, relocated here three years ago from Sydney, where he was Associate Director at Object Gallery. Parkes is a big proponent of the lifstyle in this laidback arty center. “We live among gum trees with a view of the water and I can still cycle to work in the central business district each day.”
