Vivonne Bay

"voted best beach in Australia and rates on a world scale"

One of the best beaches Adelaide has to offer. The town itself is small with a number of smaller houses and B&B’s hidden amongst the scrub.

There is a good chance you’ll see a bit of native wildlife around here. We saw a number of wallabies while staying on our honeymoon.

One of the nicest spots on the island, however, it is a long way from any significant shops. The shop at Vivonne bay is small and if you blinked you’d miss it on the main road. It has the bare essentials but for most things you’ll need to trek back across the island to Kingscote or Penneshaw.

A great spot for retirees or writers that want the peace and quiet.

Emu Bay

"Amazing views in a great location away from it all"

A great little sea side town on the north side of Kangaroo Island it has some stunning views. Emu bay itself provides some clear blue water that is incredibly inviting, even in cooler periods.

There isn’t a great deal going on in Emu Bay most of the time, it is a very small town. However, it is a nice town with a good feel. It is quiet and well located, not too far from Kingscote.

This is a great spot for retirees that want to sit back and enjoy the views, but not for young singles or couple looking for a good nightlife.

Kingscote

"A nice town on a lovely island."

The main town on Kangaroo Island, this is a small town. There is a good coverage of shops so you should be able to get most things you need here. However, for any major purchases you’ll probably need to make you’re way over to the mainland.

Kingscote has a great feel to it and would make a nice little place to live. However, it’s a lot way south so it is frequently cold and windy.

Kingscote provides the gateway to the rest of the island and there is a lot to like about the Island. Increasing numbers of wineries and tother great produce make it a nice place to visit and a quiet place to live.

Kersbrook

"Great country town only 45 mins from Adelaide"

Up in the hills this is a lovely little town. There are some good shops and a nice pub to get a good meal. It’s a reasonable distance back down to Adelaide, although you probably could do it in under an hour making it a reasonable commute length if you worked in the city.

For me its an area for a tree change. There is a good coverage of old buildings making it s lovely quaint little town. It has a great vibe. I visit here frequently as my parents in law are just around the corner in Humbug Scrub and have talked to friends of mine about the benefits of living here. A great place for the tree-changers that don’t want to be too far away.

With schools in town, some good shops and TTP not too far, a pretty nice blend.

Humbug Scrub

"A really nice country area just out of teh city"

This is a beautiful country area just out of the northern suburbs of Adelaide. While it is called Sampson Flat, there isn’t a lot of flat ground around, it is quite hilly and well covered by large gums.

The trip back into Adelaide is pretty easy and it’s probably only 20 minutes to Tea Tree Plaza. So going to the shops is nice and easy.

It is another 20-30 minutes into the city from TTP so it’s a reasonable trip if you work in Adelaide. As a result it is probably not the best location for people that want to get out every night for a good time.
You are more likely to get some acreage here than your standard block.

It is high on my list of places to live.

Dernancourt

"Beautiful suburb with easy access to Linear park"

There are some absolutely huge gums in Dernancourt. The suburb runs down towards the river so it is all on a slope. For me the area is great. Being close to the upper end of Linear Park, there are plenty of places to walk run or cycle and there is a good chance you’ll see a bit of native wildelife. The streets are well lined with trees and peoples gardens are well maintained.

There are some nice houses in the area, including some more attractive cream brick houses.
The houses are on good sized blocks giving you plenty of room to move.

Public transport is ok, but being a reasonable distance from the city there isn’t as much coverage of a lot of areas and it can take a little while. The trip back down to the city is pretty easy by car.

Campbelltown

"A great area to raise a family close to the city"

Campbelltown is a rather uninspiring area in a good location. Close to Linear Park with a good coverage of parks and playground and schools it should be a great spot. However, driving through there are a lot of unattractive cream brick houses on poorly maintained blocks.

I like Campbelltown in theory. Its close to the city and well serviced by public transport. There are a lot of good shops around and it’s not far from a number of good places to eat. It is well established with a lot of trees and the proximity to Linear Park, and a very nice part of Linear Park at that, makes for a good spot. However, it’s not for me as it’s not what I’m looking for.

It would be a great area to raise a family.

Greenhill

"A nice location up on the hills face"

Well up Greenhill Road, winding your way into the hills is Greenhill. Steep slopes and just a few houses it’s not a bad area. There is a real neighbourly feel up here.

Public transport is non-existent, you’ll need to get down the hill. Once you’re down the hill you can get a bus but they don’t run all that frequently.

Given it is essentially perched on top of a hill there aren’t a lot of shops or schools in the immediate vicinity, its all down the hill.

The road down to the city is steep and windy so its not an area for people with trouble with heights. However, you can get some great views up here.

Stonyfell

"A premier location with a lot to offer"

In amongst some beautiful countryside and adjacent sought after Hazelwood Park and Burnside, Stonyfell has a lot to offer. It is one of the premier residential areas of Adelaide

Public transport is a bit thin on the ground but there is some. It is also a bit further out of the city than you expect while still being quite close and within a short drive.

There are some great parks and pools close by and also the Penfolds winery.

It is a nice area for bringing up a family but its expensive.

Hazelwood Park

"Grand homes in a green area"

I had a friend live here and it is a top place. One of the best in Adelaide. There is a large park in Hazelwood Park and a public pool making it very appealing. Add to that the wide streets, beautiful old houses and large blocks and this makes for one of the best suburbs in Adelaide.

The streets are quiet and you don’t hear a lot of dogs barking at night.

Public transport isn’t too bad but its not as well serviced as some other areas. It is a fair way up Greenhill Road as well so despite being reasonably close to the city it is further than you think. But in terms of location, this is one of the prettiest suburbs.

Kensington Gardens

"Good blend of houses in a great location"

Very similar to Kensington, there is a good blend of houses to keep everyone happy. However, the units around the area are an unattractive cream brick.

I like Kensington Gardens but so do a lot of other people which means the price is quite high for what you get. It’s worth it in many respects. It is a well established area close to the city in a prime location. I have ofetn looked at houses and units in the area but it's a bit beyond me.

It is well serviced by public transport and close to area like Norwood making going out easy.

It is a great suburb for just about everyone. Tree lined streets make it feel nice and cool in the heat of summer but a lot of the trees are gums which makes me feel a little uneasy at times.

Kensington

"Close to Norwood and the city but quiet and relaxed"

Beautiful area, simply beautiful. I have had a friend live around the area and although the unit itself was an unattractive cream brick it was still a beautiful suburb to be.

The people were friendly in my friend’s block and there was a real neighbourly feel. This vibe seems to pervade across the whole area.

Wide tree line streets make it appealing for many. Although many of those trees are large gums making me a bit uneasy about wild weather.

It is close to the city and well serviced by public transport. There aren’t any places to eat of note that I’m aware of in the area, but there are a few close by.

This is a great area for everyone as there is a good blend of houses but you’ll pay for it.

Norwood

"Amazing suburb with a lot to offer."

Norwood is one of the premier suburbs of Adelaide and with good reason. There is a good blend of houses here making it great for everyone. From the large old homes on big blocks to townhouses and smaller units and apartments. All of which are well maintained.

There are plenty of places to eat around Norwood, especially along the Parade and you can get out to see a movie. There is a ten pin bowling venue in Norwood which is great and I think still does disco bowling.

There are plenty of shops around Norwood so you can easily get what you need.

Public transport services the area well and it is a really short trip into the city. You could easily walk it and it is a pleasant walk.

With so much on offer, Norwood is a great suburb, but it is popular on the weekends for a night out so in some places can get a little noisy.

It’s also expensive and so despite the fact that there is a house for everyone, everyone wants one and the prices are high.

Rose Park

"My dream suburb, except for that damn Clipsal 500"

Wow. I would love to live here. Wide streets, close to the city and close to the racecourse and some of the most beautiful streets imaginable. This is my ideal suburb. But obviously I’m not the only one that thinks so because the prices here will be out of reach of most people.

Just of Fullarton road just about every street is a winner. There are some good places to eat nearby and a petrol station not far away if you ever get in trouble.

The houses are old and simply stunning and the blocks are large and well maintained.

Public transport is good here with buses running along Fullarton Road, however it is so close to the city you can walk in easily.

A lot of people use Victoria park racecourse as spot to walk or run. The downside, well that would be the Clipsal 500 bringing in the riff raff and the noise.

Myrtle Bank

"Short trip into the city from this green area"

A stunning, yet expensive area. Further up Glen Osmond Road towards the freeway entrance this exclusive suburb sits proudly. Beautiful old houses on wide tree lined streets, just to drive through here makes you feel better.

There are some huge gums in and around the area so that could be a problem in severe weather but I’d say its worth it.

Public transport services the area well with the main bus routes running down Glen Osmond Road and Portrush Road. Its close to the city and there are plenty of good places to eat around the area.

Shops close by and a post office, the area has a lot to offer.

Myrtle Bank

"Expensive but with good reason."

Another one of the beautiful inner south eastern suburbs. Wide tree lined streets and beautiful old houses are the hall mark of this area.

It is well serviced by public transport and it’s a short trip on the bus into the city. You could walk if you wanted to as its not that far but it may take a while.

It’s a lovely quiet area that is perfect for families with good sized blocks.

There are some good shops near by, including the Arkaba and its not too far from Unley Road.
If you want to get out for a meal there are plenty of god eateries close by, including on Glen Osmond Road, Unley Road and into the city.

I really like Myrtle Bank but it is sadly out of my price range.

"A true gem in the inner south eastern suburbs."

This is a true gem in the inner south east. Only a small suburb but each and everyone of the streets is stunning. Well established large trees lining the streets gives it a cool feel even in the heat of summer. The houses are either older houses that have been redone and are beautiful, or new houses done in a similar style.

The area is quiet. It is not far from the city making getting out for a night out very easy. Although the Arkaba is just down the road. There are a number of shops close by and it is easy to get out of the city up the freeway.

There are some great places to eat nearby and plenty of good takeaways within a short distance.
A great spot for everyone…if you can afford it because you will certainly be paying for what is on offer.

Golden Grove

"A nice green area with a lot of appeal"

Golden Grove is a nice family area. Now well established the streets are tree lined and the houses are still reasonably fresh.

It is reasonably well serviced by public transport and it’s not far to Tea Tree Plaza. Golden Grove also offers a good range of shops a little closer than Tea Tree Plaza.

It’s not too long a trip into the city if you want to get out for a meal or a night out although there are a few places close by.

A nice area for young families that want to be a bit further out from the city. There are plenty of reasonable schools in the area.

Walkley Heights

"A nice new area with some great views"

A newer area in the North East this area has some great views down to the coast. It sits up on a rise and, while still developing, is reasonably well established. There are a lot of nice houses in here on reasonable sized blocks considering the area.

There are some steep streets and they can be a bit narrow but as far as new developments go this is one of the nicer ones I have seen recently.

There is a school in the area and it has a reasonable service for public transport.

Not far from Walkey Heights is Ingle Farm shops which have just about everything you could need including ten pin bowling for a bit of fun.

It’s a great area for families and young professionals.

Also I notice no one has front fences in Walkey Heights, Is that because you are not permitted from fencing?

Old Reynella

"Historic area with everything you could need"

Old Reynella is home to the Reynella football club, and a large shopping centre. So you can easily get out and about and do your shopping without having to go too far.

Old Reynella is well serviced by public transport as the major bus routes from the city to Noarlunga centre run through here. As a result it is probably the best for frequency of all of the southern suburbs.

As this is an older ‘town’ there are a number of older houses around giving the area a bit more history in its feel. However, there are also plenty of the 70’s and 80’s cream brick houses.

Not as attractive in some parts as its neighbours, but more so than others it is a great area. There are schools and kindergartens nearby and it has a good family feel.

There are also some homes for aged care so it's good for retirees as well.
