"One of the worst suburbs in adelaide"

How can people on here rate the port anything but a struggling low social e onomic suburb. High crime, they tried to improve the area by spending money on the port redevelopment scheme and dodnt have much luck. No way would any normal family live here unless they had limited funds, at best long term investment.

backspace
backspace I like your attitude towards the port, but, I’ve got to say the opposite you... The area has tripled in price, but the crime rate is high, and centerlink and other government services that typically attract the lower class still remain a couple of streets over from housing trust and industry, all which are what border what they call the new port.

I am so hopeful for the port, but considering the government won’t make any efforts to reduce the commercial rental price or the possible re-location of the government services and practices that are attracting the impoverished, I have to say I would not recommend living in the port any time soon...

"Port Adelaide - where Community Spirit is alive and well!!!"

You could really be mistaken for thinking you were in a trendy melbourne suburb! Its a wonderful tree lined street, with stunning heritage listed buildings on either side. Many small businesses flourish here and there are also the most wonderful Museums too! Take the kids to the Maritime Museum which has hands on fun - and always a different show in school holidays. Once you're done there, scoot across the cobble stoned walkway to the Lipson Street Cafe. The food is always top notch, and you can choose to sit outside under the leafy trees. Such ambience! Its a short walk to the Port River Promenade, the landing dock for the Dophin Cruises - definitely a great destination for everyone!

"A lot to like, a lot of potential but it hasn't realised it yet. Give it time."

Supposedly undertaking a redevelopment, Port Adelaide could be one of the premier locations in Adelaide. It’s an easy trip into the city down Port Road. The Port River although functional could also be a beautiful spot. St Vincent street is the main shop district and it’s a nice looking street. It could easily form the foundation for a great 'village' out from the city.

There are a lot of older houses and row cottages here that aren't all that attractive and haven't been as well maintained as they could have. There are also some good sized houses around the place.
There are no worries with shops at Port Adelaide as there are some great butchers, fruit and veg places and other shops that provide some of the best value in Adelaide.

There is a lot to like about Port Adelaide; it’s just a pity the Newport Quays development hasn't lifted the rest of Port Adelaide up as it was supposed to. It will but it hasn't happened yet.

"Undergoing a major transformation - is this Adelaide's next big thing?"

Situated 30 minutes to the northwest of Adelaide, Port Adelaide is undergoing a major transformation. Well serviced by frequent public transport, it is not too far from the CBD.

The Port has always had some charm, despite its dubious reputation. It has a number of old pubs, an interesting Maritime Museum, bric-a-brac shops and markets. Now a number of developers have moved in, hoping to convert this rough and tumble location in to a homeowner’s dream.

A number of super-modern apartments are springing up along the Port with great views and excellent urban design. The hope is to lure professional couples and uni students, looking for a lifestyle similar to that of the Melbourne Docklands or Walsh Bay in Sydney.

There is a long way to go before the Port is fully serviced with a good range of cafes, friendly pubs and shopping options. Only time will tell whether it’s true colours will change!
