Global Biomedical Industries

Welcome to South Australia, a land of natural beauty, rich history, and thriving healthtech innovation. Offering world-class healthcare facilities, cutting-edge research and development opportunities, and a supportive ecosystem for entrepreneurs, innovators and partners in the health and medical innovation sector.

The $4 billion Adelaide BioMed City is in the heart of Adelaide, comprised of leading-edge anchor research and educational institutes, companies, that cluster and connect with start-ups, business incubators and accelerators. The state’s three growing innovation districts include Adelaide BioMed City, Lot Fourteen and the Tonsley Innovation District, which capitalise on South Australia’s competitive advantage in emerging sectors of advanced manufacturing.

South Australia, Your Destination for HealthTech Innovations

Adelaide’s competitive advantage includes significant investment and committed future plans for capital developments forming a connected locale of mixed-use infrastructure. South Australia has rapid regulatory pathways and globally accepted quality data systems which are attractive for conducting world-class clinical trials. Adelaide’s central business district hosts a connected network of clinical research organisations, clinical trial sites, and analytical services.

Geographically, South Australia is centrally located to other domestic cities, forming Team Australia, and an accessible launch pad to key fast-growing Asian markets, such as China, India, and South East Asia. It is also a great place to live.

The city is home to the Royal Adelaide Hospital, a technologically advanced hospital which offers a range of specialties including cancer treatment, cardiac care and neuroscience. Other leading healthcare facilities include the Flinders Medical Centre and the Women’s and Children’s Hospital, both of which are dedicated to providing exceptional care to patients and their families. Adelaide is also home to the new Australian Bragg Centre, a purpose built biomedical development set to be home to leading cancer research institutes as well as the first clinically dedicated proton beam precision therapy centre in the Southern Hemisphere.

Wonderful City, 
Beautiful Country 

The city not only provides excellent facilities but also offers a range of unforgettable experiences. You will discover a city that is easy and safe to stroll around with plenty to see and do. When you visit Adelaide, make sure you stop to admire the heritage streetscapes, charming buildings and public art. Walk along the river and through the parklands, or just lounge on the beach or at one of the many cafes. The airport is only seven kilometres (4.3 miles) from Adelaide city and the Adelaide Hills with the Barossa Valley and major beaches a short drive away by car.
