"In the middle of everything"

I've lived in Morphettville for 12 years. It's an absolutely fantastic place to live for the young and those with families. Just down the road from Marion Shopping Centre, the beach, Glenelg, the hills. Plenty of public transport around; bus, tram, train all just around the corner.
There's a sports centre and pool, Morphettville health clinic and gym, a couple of bars, bicycle track. You can often get up close to the beautiful horses around the racecourse.
Schools and parks are abundant in and around Morphettville. Good crowds gather to watch the footy and cricket at the local oval. The tennis courts are often packed.
And the cherry on top, the FOOD! Get down to Denham Avenue, sensational food there. Morphett Fish and Chicken is always quality, as is PK Pizza next door, just across Morphett Rd is Suzi Wong's...this is flavour country!
Pros
  • Proximity to transport, schools, shops.
  • The food!
  • The parks, community and facilities.
Cons
  • Morning peak hour on Morphett Road. On random mornings you can end up sitting there for 10-15 minutes.
