Lifestyle

Home to world-class sporting facilities, trendy eateries and some of Adelaide’s most popular restaurants and bars, North Adelaide locals don’t have to go far to be entertained. O’Connell Street has an eclectic mix of alfresco cafés, bars and hotels – it’s a hotspot for live music. Pubs host evening revellers who spill out onto the street, while baristas are kept busy by weekday workers and ladies who brunch. 

Dining out is the norm with a variety of cuisines on offer while shopping is made easy with North Adelaide Village and the surrounding designer boutiques and specialty shops. Melbourne Street offers another strip of cafés, services and a handful of fashion shops, all within walking distance of the Women’s and Children’s Hospital and the Adelaide Zoo.

The iconic Adelaide Oval, home to passionate AFL and cricket fans, looms large beside the River Torrens, and sits in stark contrast to the nearby ornate churches and cathedrals that make Adelaide famous.

Locals of all ages spend their down-time going for leisurely walks through the Park Lands, running around the River Torrens or swimming laps at the Adelaide Aquatic Centre. Golfers are spoilt with three versatile courses at the North Adelaide Golf Course, while dogs and their owners can be found playing at the popular North Adelaide Dog Park.

With the iconic Adelaide Oval in the neighbourhood, an enviable selection of restaurants and over fourteen historic pubs, it’s no surprise that North Adelaide has a vibrant and lively nightlife. O’Connell Street is brimming with a number of restaurants. French, Italian, Indian, Moroccan, Mexican, Thai or Japanese – you name it, you’ll find it here.

BY NIGHT

Neighbours

North Adelaide has long been regarded as an upper-class neighbourhood where wealthy families live alongside celebrities in lavish manors. However, this stereotype is being increasingly challenged. A new generation of young professionals and students are moving in. While high prices put North Adelaide homes out of reach for many young families, the area continues to be popular with retirees, executive couples and established families.

Locals love

With lots of pubs and trendy restaurants on their doorstep, North Adelaideans love to wine and dine. Historic pubs that have been revamped sit alongside modern burger bars and contemporary restaurants, providing plenty of choice in style and cuisine.

Walk or bike to and from the city, or if you prefer, take the free City Connector Bus. Locals embrace the surrounding Park Lands. The horse paddocks are a favourite with early morning walkers and the Uni Loop provides a convenient challenge for serious runners as well as casual joggers.

There’s no need to be a sporting fan to love Adelaide Oval. Whether it’s AFL, cricket or a rock concert, the atmosphere is electric. Best of all, locals get to sidestep the traffic and simply walk to their stadium seats, enjoying the hospitality of their local pub along the way.

Property

The architecture of North Adelaide is aesthetically inspiring. Wide, leafy streets are filled with free-standing Victorian mansions, contemporary townhouses, modern apartment complexes and heritage-listed cottages.

On the western side, Mills Terrace, Barnard Street and Strangways Terrace host a number of impressive homes, while Lakeman Street is one of the more well-known laneways, noted for its row of cute townhouses with colourful front doors.

Towards the east, Lefevre Terrace is considered one of the best streets in Adelaide, renowned for its heritage-listed mansions and stunning character homes, complete with English-style gardens. The historic lodges along Kingston Terrace and Stanley Street are also highly regarded, perched on large blocks with ornate fences and breathtaking views over the city and towards the hills.
