In terms of religious, racial, economic and cultural diversity, are the people of this city or town diverse? Are they accepting of differences? Describe.

The size of Adelaide can be a pro or con, based on your personal preference. It's a small city which operates more like a large town and while it is diverse, it can be a bit insular. It takes patience to break through and settle in.

What are the main industries in this city? What types of career opportunities commonly exist? How do most people find new jobs?

http://www.seek.com.au is the best web site for job hunters. There are many recruitment agencies, although finding the initial job can be difficult if you are not a native speaker of English. Preparation is key.

In general, what are peoples' priorities in this city? For example, do lives revolve around work, family, socializing, sports, etc.?

Locals are friendly and it is easy to find your way around. Meeting people can be difficult at first and it is important to be outgoing here.
