"Great suburb with all facilities nearby"

Lived here for 13 years and counting. Great location close to Centro Colonnades, Noarlunga Hospital, Movies, Bowling, Swimming Centre, Bunnings!, Public Transport, Southern Expressway, The Beach/River...the list goes on.

Quiet area with not much traffic and great neighbours (OK, I don't speak with them all but I have no reason at all to dislike/hate them).

High speed internet is available for most premises thanks to NuSkope with fixed wireless broadband. Don't need to rely on ADSL or wait for NBN.
Pros
  • Great Neighbours
  • Shopping Options
  • Close to everything

thesuburbreviewer25
thesuburbreviewer25 Well, I think your review secretly says it all - you strongly think that the southern suburbs are worst suburbs and the northern suburbs, including Salisbury, Davoren Park, Elizabeth, Salisbury North, etc, are much better. Are you seriously joking me right now?! Go live in all these areas, and there's more than that, and after, come back saying how much better it was. If you want to say things about a suburb that you obviously think are way better than the northern suburbs which are the worst and most unsafest, drug-related, gang-related areas of Adelaide, I suggest you go to the northern suburbs, open your eyes until they hurt, and you will completely change this review for GOOD. Don't riddle with areas that deserve more praise and credit because that's what they actually deserve, but instead, be wiser and see the northern suburbs for yourself. Christie Downs won't be so bad, after all. Enough said!

"Christies beach with transport and cheaper"

Christie Downs has all the beaches accessible easily to those at christies beach, however it is located within walking distance to the major regional hub of Noarlunga centre where all facilities are located.(Noarlunga hospital , wallis cinemas, the whole cento collonades shopping centre, ten pin bowling, the library and government service departments).Bus access is good or you could catch the train.Drop onto the express way to get to inner metro Adelaide or catch the train to Adelaide or other beachside suburbs such as seacliff or Brighton, and with the train extension south Seaford from 2014.With all this at Christie Downs and the boom occuring in christies beach, christie downs is bound to boom on the back of christies beach and is currently an excellent investment for those who like beachside living but can't afford the beachside price.

"Lived there for 10 years"

Pretty much grew up in this suburb, it inspired me to get the hell out as soon as I could. Housing Trust estate. Gangs of Teenage and Younger kids. I was looking for something positive here, all I can come up with is our house block was a resonable size. Yes there is parking (if you don't mind your car on bricks when you get back...if its there) Yes there is Public Transport (if you don't mind sharing a bus with someone that hasn't used a shower in a year) Yes there are parks (avoid the gangs and needles)

It's just a place to avoid at all cost
Pros
  • Block Size?
Cons
  • The People
  • Teenage Gangs
  • Safety
