Adelaide is relatively safe for the most part, I was able to walk by myself in the city without any trouble happening (Though you'll sometimes get approached by a couple of druggies that are looking for ciggies or something.) However i would recommend staying on the walkway's where the trams and car pass by at night and would strongly recommend walking with a group when crossing into Hindley street at night. Another thing i would like to say is, stay out of the low income area such as Elizabeth,Davoren park,and maybe Smithfield cause that's where drug dealing is rampant.

I have never ever felt unsafe in Adelaide, spent many hours Adelaide city nights doing photography. Live in a low socio economic area, has some drug issues, but all in all; people still walk their dogs, get out and about. street crime is minimal. Never been attacked or accosted in Adelaide, cant say the same for Sydney.

Do not let what im about to say truly ruin your opinion on Adelaide, but I feel this need to be said. Most people who have commented are under the assumption Adelaide is flawless and safe. Wrong. Ice is being sold everywhere in Adelaide now, and is affecting the West, North and far Eastern suburbs. This in turn has brought a lot of crime to our streets, and most crimes don't get reported, so just be aware in adelaide
