"Close-knit Community Surrounded by Luxury, Character and Charm"

At the heart of Walkerville is ‘Community’ - the people are friendly and the suburb thrives on neighbourly spirit. The streets are lined with leafy green trees and stunning homes that are full of character and charm. It’s the perfect place to raise a family with access to parks, recreation and Adelaide’s premier schools, such as Walkerville Primary, St. Andrew’s School, Wilderness School and St. Peter’s College.

If you love being active outdoors, you can easily walk, run or cycle through Linear Park as it runs through Walkerville through to the Adelaide CBD. I love how amazing it is to get out into nature while being only a 5-10 minute drive from Adelaide, CBD.

"Beautiful suburb only 3km from city"

Having lived in the area since 2005. Easily connected via bus to the city. Beautiful local businesses, cafes and Walkerville Tce is undergoing great rejuvenation. The property prices are high but have faced some stagnation in recent times. Great lifestyle with parks, ovals, tennis courts and always friendly people and neighbours about.

"Walkerville - Your Town."

Walkerville is Home to Linear Park, one of the best riding tracks in Adelaide. Walkerville have incredible houses on every street.

Walkerville is only 8 minutes to the CBD (10 minutes in current traffic)

Walkerville has some lovely parks, which have been well kept and neighbours look after it.

Of course, the neighbours in Walkerville are super friendly, they will say hello to you when you stroll in the street or River Torrens. They will also look after one another. Also, they will look after there houses incredibly well.

The construction of the Walkerville Shopping Centre is looking good. They still need to finish it, but they just need to fix those bits and peices.

The streets in Walkerville are absolutely huge. So visitors will be quite surprised when they see these big streets in Walkerville.

Also, the Internet Access is excellent, it runs really fast.

So if you want a safe and quiet lifestyle, then Walkerville is the place.

"A great community..."

What i like about Walkerville is that its not just a nice suburb with nice houses its also a small community within... It reminds me of Dalkeith, Western Australia with tree lined streets & quaint shops ie. IGA, Bakery, Fresh fruit and Veg, Butcher, Book Shop, Newsagent & all other necessities located around Walkerville Terrace... Walkerville has everything at your finger tips.. North Adelaide's boutique shopping preceint, Norwood parade & CBD all so close. Walkerville will not disappoint..

"Heaven... if you can afford it"

Walkerville is like a little town within a city. The area is very historic and features many beautiful Victorian stone houses as well as the newer mansions (many built in the Victorian style). It's an area for wealthy people, so expect to see lots of Mercedes and BMWs driving around :) This also means that some of the shops on Walkerville Tce are a little pricey. Walkervile Primary School is EXCELLENT and one of the most sought-after public schools in SA. You can try to enrol, but you won't be accepted unless you live in the zoned area. The proximity to the Linear Park make this a fantastic suburb to live in if you like recreation. There are good walking tracks and bike tracks as well as playgrounds and the river. All of this is within 5-10 mins from the CBD. Perfect!! It's one of Adelaide's most prestigious addresses.

Why has everyone have to rate Safe and Sound 4 stars. Walkerville has always been 5 stars for Safe and Sound for years and years now! You might have to change that, Tuscansun. And you too, Henry Gower.

I know that.I am not sure if that is 100% True about the whole having to live in the area to get a placement into one of the schools in Walkerville.In My Time when My Mum put me in for St Andrews back in 1989 to finish off my Elementary Schooling for the remaining two years of that part of my education after being very disheartened with the Public School System There was no such restriction.We had Kids living in Highbury,Vista,Tea Tree Gully,Colonel Light Gardens,Wynn Vale,Pooraka and in my case Salisbury in my home classes as well as virtually everyone else living within the close boundary of the school.I agree whole heartedly with the rest of the things written too.They even in the old days had a City to Salisbury Bus that used to go past St Andrews(206)Nowadays you catch a 202 from North East Rd to Ingle Farm Shops and connect onto a 500 or 502 the rest of the way.

"Green, beautiful and close to everything - when can I move in?"

One of the premier locations in Adelaide. There is a reasonable blend of houses around from the lovely Tudors on big blocks to the units and townhouses. All of which are maintained and the roads are nice and wide. Walkerville shops service the area well although there isn't that big supermarket in the area.

Walkerville backs up against a great part of Linear park which makes for a nice walk run or ride. However, it’s equally nice to ride, walk and run in Walkerville itself with its tree lined streets and beautiful houses.

Walkerville is within walking distance of the city and it’s not a long walk, maybe 25 minutes.
However, for all its benefits you will definitely pay for it. It is one of the most expensive areas in Adelaide.

"A leafy, established neighbourhood just minutes from the CBD"

Situated just a 5 minute drive from the Adelaide CBD, Walkerville is one of Adelaide’s prestigious suburbs. With a number of grand old homes with spacious gardens, it is expensive to buy but for good reason.

The suburb centres around Walkerville Terrace, which has a collection of coffee shops, casual pubs and smaller stores. There is a major shopping complex under construction (due to be completed in the next couple of years).

On the edge of the River Torrens, it is the perfect location for those who love to go walking or jogging. The suburb is well set up for families, with nearby schools including St Andrews (a private primary school), Walkerville Primary, Wilderness (a private girl's school) and St Peter's College (a private boy's school).

Walkerville is very well situated on the edge of Adelaide, and close to North Adelaide (with a huge range of cafés, restaurants and pubs) and Magill (with the Avenues shopping complex). There are frequent buses to the heart of the CBD.

Overall, Walkerville is a picturesque suburb with all you need in easy reach for a comfortable city life and great lifestyle.

Agreed, great suburb with a lot to offer, even a few units quick are as attractive as the rest of the area which is rare.

The Avenues is at Stepney, much closer than Magill
