In and around Adelaide

Central Business District

Adelaide’s CBD has recently been revitalised, with the introduction of small bar licensing and the redevelopment of the Adelaide Oval. There are also the heritage and cultural institutions of the North Terrace adjacent to those green parks and gardens encircling the CBD.

North Adelaide

A great spot for Adelaide’s students, North Adelaide is within easy reach of the city centre with a relaxed feel. The well planned streets and classic architecture make this area ideal to live in.

Inner West

This is a rapidly developing area and is filling up with cool cafés, boutique shops and art galleries alongside existing music venues and pubs. The free tram to the city makes this area a good option for students on a budget.

Unley & Goodwood

These areas contain some of Adelaide’s more expensive homes but students can still find plenty of townhouses and apartments within their budget. The major roads in the area are full of boutique shops, brunch spots and dinner restaurants.
