"Friendly and extremely safe while located seconds from the city!"

Located in the inner southern suburbs, Goodwood is an amazing area, and it is literally located seconds from the city centre of Adelaide! Goodwood is definitely a charm of a suburb, with many homes retaining a bungalow-style look while other old homes are being renovated or demolished for new homes. The streets are very clean and the locals here are quiet. Although it can be a bit pricey since the city is a doorstep ahead of it, most house prices are average. Goodwood is also very close to amenities, with small goodies, eateries/restaurants and daily shopping along Goodwood Road, Westfield Marion at Oaklands Park and Harbour Town at West Beach both only 20 minutes away, Unley Shopping Centre 5 minutes away, Burnside Village at Glenside 10 minutes and Rundle Mall in the CBD minutes away, to name a few. Schools covering the Goodwood are are excellent, with the widely-known Goodwood Primary School seconds away and Pasadena High School at Pasadena only 20 minutes away, Unley High School and much more. There are some nice parks in the area, too. Goodwood is an extremely safe neighbourhood as rarely any crime goes on around here and so goes the same for most of its surroundings. It's actually nice and pleasant to drive through this gem of an area!

Overall, what a beautiful suburb Goodwood is! Extremely safe, very friendly locals, and close to everything you need! I also like the fact how frequent festivals go on around this area or the other inner southern suburbs which are equally as beautiful and safe as Goodwood is. Move to Goodwood and fall in love, I'd sure love to live here if I could!

"Convenience of the City Fringe Lifestyle in a Family Friendly Environment"

Goodwood is a tremendous suburb with a great mixture of generations and ethnicity. It is very well balanced without the issues and crime of some areas, but all the shopping, cafes and creature comforts of a village type lifestyle with the CBD just a short bus, tram or train ride and even a walk, run, scoot for the younger at heart. We have raised our family here over the last 10 years and could not have asked for a more suitable place to do it.
Pros
  • City fringe
  • Village lifestyle
  • Security
Cons
  • Cost of housing precludes some from taking up residence
