The predominantly residential area of North Adelaide lies immediately to the north of the River Torrens and Adelaide City. With a much lower population density than its City-Centre neighbour, North Adelaide’s residents are mostly independent professionals drawn to the area’s lively nightlife and rich social scene.
Constructed during the 1930’s under the direction of Colonel William Light’s design, the suburb consists of three grid-like areas surrounded by lush parklands. Residential dwellings are largely terrace houses or apartments, with countless charismatic heritage buildings also dotting the area. The well-appointed and accessible area is tightly held by locals enamored by the thriving strip of O’Connell Street and the manicured riverside parklands, ideal for weekend strolls.
The highly sought-after stone terraces and Victorian villas provide a graceful air to North Adelaide’s residential areas, while more affordable living options exist in the form of modern developments, established in a wave of construction during the 1980’s and 90’s.
Several university colleges also call North Adelaide home, with students capitalising on the suburb’s enviable lifestyle. With pubs, restaurants and attractions aplenty, there is always something to do in North Adelaide; a visit to the Adelaide Zoo or Aquatic Centre rounded out with an AFL match at the Adelaide Oval is the perfect remedy for a hectic week.
