The City of Charles Sturt would like to acknowledge the land we occupy today is the traditional lands for the Kaurna people and that we respect their spiritual relationship with their country. We also acknowledge the Kaurna people as the custodians of the greater Adelaide region and that their cultural and heritage beliefs are still as important to the living Kaurna people today.
The City of Charles Sturt was proclaimed on 1 January 1997 as a result of the amalgamation of the former City of Hindmarsh Woodville and the City of Henley and Grange.
The City is situated west of the Central Business District of Adelaide, South Australia extending to the coast with a population of approximately 105,000.
People choose to live in the City because it is close to the beach, the CBD, the airport and regional shopping facilities. The City of Charles Sturt has long been considered the sporting and entertainment hub of Adelaide, with national basketball, soccer and football stadiums, three privately owned golf courses, an international rowing course, the River Torrens Linear Park, the Adelaide Entertainment Centre, the coast and numerous highly regarded local sporting venues in the area.
The City is also well catered for in terms of schools, medical services, local sporting and community facilities including libraries and community centres.
The Charles Sturt area has evolved since the early days of settlement of Adelaide, and is characterised by a mix of residential, industrial and commercial land uses, which include contemporary and highly valued heritage areas. The transport networks within the City are well developed and is set to be further developed in future years to make public transport from the West to the CBD even easier.
