Green Suburbs: Adelaide’s Leafiest Neighbourhoods

Find greener pastures in nine of Adelaide’s leafiest suburbs.

Punctuated by beautiful leafy streetscapes and sprawling greenery, these nine Adelaide neighbourhoods strike the perfect balance between village charm and urban convenience.

Mount Osmond

The pocket-sized suburb of Mount Osmond sits in the Mount Lofty Ranges, just east of the city centre. The Mount Osmond Gold Club occupies much of the suburb, and residents can enjoy a clean and serene lifestyle that’s hard to beat. There are endless opportunities to stretch your legs on the walking trails through Waterfall Gully and Cleland Wildlife Park, while nearby, the stunning Mount Lofty Botanic Garden promises a chance to reconnect with nature.

Walkerville

The well-heeled enclave of Walkerville lies just 4km from the city centre and combines premium homes with an authentic village-like feel. Sitting on the River Torrens, locals can walk, run or cycle part of the Linear Trail, among soaring river red gums, or relax in the neighbourhood’s pretty parks and reserves feeling at one with nature. There are sporting grounds, premier schools and boutiques and eateries dotted along Walkerville Terrace.

North Adelaide

The prestigious neighbourhood of North Adelaide is bounded by the idyllic Adelaide Park Lands, providing myriad space and greenery to breathe in the fresh air. A collection of 29 parks, these are diverse landscapes to play, get active or simply relax beneath towering Moreton Bay fig trees. The suburb has O’Connell Street running through its centre, home to some of the city’s most renowned restaurants, cafes and historic pubs.

Clarence Gardens

A 15-minute drive from both the CBD and metro coast, Clarence Gardens enjoys an enviable position combining lifestyle and city convenience.

There’s a football and rugby club, local parklands and a good range of quality schools, making this a popular pick among families.

Millswood

In Adelaide’s leafy inner south, Millswood has a charming, suburban feel while being just minutes from the CBD. Bike paths meander through tree-lined streets, while playgrounds, tennis courts and sporting ovals encourage families outdoors. The suburb is moments from the weekly Adelaide Showground Farmers’ Market, where locals gather to stock up on fresh produce, as well as the dining and shopping precincts of Goodwood and Unley roads.

Unley Park

Historic Unley Park remains one of the most sought-after suburbs in Adelaide thanks to its stunning properties, access to top tier schools and proximity to the city. Its tree-lined streets showcase impressive, high-end homes, albeit with the price tag to match. The suburb boasts family favourite Heywood Park, with its heritage gum trees, and Unley Park Sports Club offering tennis and bowls. Nearby, locals can tuck into notable brunch spots along Unley Road (try Pickle in the Middle or Whistle and Flute) and shop designer fashion on King William Road.
