Welcome to Adelaide
ICHM is located in Adelaide, the capital city of South Australia, an attractive city of just over 1.2 million people. Adelaide is renowned as a city of restaurants, quality wine, outdoor eating and a great lifestyle; an ideal place to come and learn the art of hospitality.
Students will find Adelaide safe, friendly, welcoming and easy to find their way around. Small enough to provide an ideal study environment, but when you’re not studying Adelaide offers all the usual options of cinemas, restaurants, nightlife, shopping and sightseeing to keep you entertained. As the Festival City with its world famous cultural events, Adelaide also serves up some not to be missed entertainment. And if you like water sports or just relaxing on the beach, then Adelaide’s kilometres of white sandy beaches will tempt you!
South Australia keeps Central Standard Time, which is 9.5 hours ahead of Greenwich Mean Time. Students from Asia will share the same approximate time zones as their families. ‘Daylight Saving’ operates between October and March, when clocks are advanced one hour, allowing residents to enjoy long, sunlit evenings.

“A very easy place to make friends and living in Adelaide is so easy! It’s clean, fresh and sunny.”
“Love Gouger Street with its great variety of restaurants and cafes, Chinese, Korean, Indian, Vietnamese, Italian, French and many, many more. One of our favourites is Mapo, we meet many of our friends there after class and on the week ends. We can show them Korean food. They are amazed at the variety.”

185 rooms equals 185 friends!”
