"Flaggy...."

I love living in Flaggy.... as with all places there are pros and cons... public transport could be a bit quicker, but it does go to marion where you can connect to anywhere. Not a lot of restraunts, if any, but The Duck Inn is a short 5 mins drive, and that is a highly recommended pub. I love the greenness, the trees, the koalas, the odd kangaroo! The atmosphere of the country within a short distance to general "suburbia". I cannot even contemplate the possibility of living "down the hill" on straight roads, with houses piled against each other, and only the odd tree and asphalt to look at. The hills, the valleys, the creeks and rivers...birdlife and wildlife... The pre-primary and primary schools are absolutely fantastc, but we are lacking a really good high school.

All in all, a winner in my opinion!
Pros
  • Beautiful countryside
  • Great Neighbours
  • Well kept houses and gardens
Cons
  • train service could be quicker

"Supremly Quiet"

Great area, nice quiet and safe street. Good semi country feel, away from the hustle and bustle. Always relaxing to come home to from working in the city. Public transport could be better but not a fault of living in Flagstaff.

carob What does a long way to anywhere mean? Flagstaff hill has good local facilities. It's a few minutes drive to a Major Westfield shopping centre. Ten minutes from some of Adelaide's best beaches. And a very short drive to the beautiful Adelaide Hills. It is also peaceful, secluded, quiet, with natural parks and birdlife...

"A Hidden Gem in Flagstaff Hill"

An attractive street with several quality homes and easy access to schools, transport, shops, reserves and local Golf Course. Approx. 5 minutes to the Hub Shopping Centre and great local Library. Also a short 15 minute drive to Marion Shopping Centre (with everything) and 8 minutes to Flinders University and Private/Public Hospitals. Park Lane itself has very little traffic as it adjoins a no-through road (Taminga Way). Local wildlife seen in the street includes Koalas, Parrots, Native Ducks & Kookaburras, plus the usual Magpies!

Flagstaff Hill in my opinion one of Adelaides most underrated suburbs. A glorious quasi rural environement with fine homesreserves and walking trails. Approx 25 mins to cbd and just minutes to Marion and TheBay. Housing affordability is excellent with outstanding value for money. Just a gtreat place to live.

"Flagstaff Hill - something for everyone"

Still just 25 minutes from the CBD, Flagstaff Hill makes for an accessible area, with a get away feel. Within this very expansive suburb, you will find sections that have been extensively developed, and yet others where you have a gorgeous outlook over the tree tops. With great facilities, including Golf Course, local schools, good public transport, and stunning parks, inlcuding Sturt Gorge.

"Voted most popular suburb in Adelaide by British visitors and new arrivals!"

Flagstaff Hill is an extensive suburb located a convenient 15 mins from the beach and 25 mins from the CBD and airport. Classified as 'up the hill' rather than part of suburbia, it has a somewhat 'rural' atmosphere with plenty of trees, parkland and recreational facilities. Developed along the Sturt Gorge, the heart of Flagstaff Hill started about 35 years ago with the older homes central and surrounding the Flagstaff Hill shopping centre and Golf Course. This area is very popular as it is well settled and is walking distance to schools, shops, golf course and all amenities such as doctor, dentist & physio. The Flagstaff Hill shopping centre, although a relatively small parade of shops, covers the needs of the area with a very competitive IGA open until 9pm week nights and all weekend, Post Office, Chemist, Bakery, Florist, Chicken Shop, Hairdresser, Cellarbrations, Ray White Real Estate and opening soon an IMVS. Surrounding the shopping centre are the medical and dental centres. The Flagstaff Hill Golf Course is across the road and property surrounding and backing the golf course, is very popular with prices and returns at a premium.
The Craigburn Estate was the next to develop a little further along the Gorge, with properties around 10-15 years of age. This area attracted the more prestigious property builders and remains somewhat a 'cut above' for location and position.
The most recent addition to this lovely suburb is the Flagstaff Pines development started only 5 years ago with a couple of homes and now there are 100s. Once again, the relative newness of this area has attracted designer homes and still has some 20-30 show homes of various Builders attracting visitors to the area on a daily basis.
Being on of the most popular suburbs in Adelaide, property in the area has remained on an upward spiral when many other suburbs have experienced a loss or decrease in value in the last 12-24 months.
Overall, Flagstaff Hill is a great place to live, bring up a family and enjoy a great community lifestyle.

"What is there not to like about Flagstaff Hill - Leafy and Lovely"

Flagstaff Hill is about 16km away from the CBD and is a lovely, sprawling, leafy suburb that has lots of walking trails. A large proportion of Flagstaff Hill backs onto Sturt Gorge which is wonderful for bushwalking and just for children exploring in general. A number of new homes being built in the Flagstaff Pines estate as well as older more established homes. Very friendly neighbours and my street, Glendale Avenue is one of the nicest around with lots of trees, wide streets, lovely homes and stunning views. Shopping is handy - large shopping centre at the Hub (Aberfoyle Park), smaller shops at Flagstaff Hill (grocery, bakery, post office and florist) and very large shopping centre at Westfield Marion about a 10 minute drive away. Good beaches are also about a 10 minute drive away. Buses run from Aberfoyle Park and through Flagstaff Hill and there is a train service from Coromandel Valley about a 10 minute drive away. All in all, the perfect suburb!
