Tucked away in Adelaide’s East, Campbelltown is a quiet neighbourhood that loves to make the most of its generous outdoor space. Bordered by the River Torrens and Fourth Creek, this slice of suburbia is teeming with parklands, playgrounds and sporting grounds – some are well established, and others have had a beautiful makeover with manicured gardens and paved pathways.
And it doesn’t end there. A new modern leisure centre, The ARC Campbelltown, has taken local’s love for sport to a whole other level, with its aquatics area, indoor courts and health club catering to a plethora of sports, including roller derby, futsal, basketball and swimming (to name a few). Sports and leisure aside, the main hub on Lower North East Road is a bustling spot and has all the amenities with a sprinkling of eateries and cafes.
Step away from the main thoroughfares and the streets take on a laidback, suburban feel. Solid brick homes nod to a nostalgia of backyard barbeques and impromptu games of cricket and football. And with the relatively flat terrain, many take in the much-welcomed views of beautiful Adelaide Hills.
Within easy reach of Adelaide’s CBD and with access to a selection of schools, it is easy to see why young families and those wanting a slower pace are drawn to the outdoor lifestyle that Campbelltown affords.
