About our city

We live and work on the lands of the Kaurna people, the traditional owners of the Adelaide Plains. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging.

The City of Charles Sturt was proclaimed on 1 January 1997. It joined together the former City of Hindmarsh Woodville and the City of Henley and Grange.

Our Council is west of the Central Business District of Adelaide, South Australia. You can see an interactive map of the City of Charles Sturt boundaries.

Our vibrant population of 120,000 lives between the city and the sea. Our community enjoys a relaxed lifestyle close to the beach and CBD, with easy access to the airport and regional shopping centres.

We’re known as a major sporting and entertainment hub in Adelaide. We have national basketball, soccer and football stadiums, three golf courses, and an international rowing course. Our Adelaide Entertainment Centre hosts world-class music and events, and our community centres are constantly hosting a range of workshops and programs.

The tranquil River Torrens Linear Park is just one in our network of parks, reserves and playgrounds. Our city has a range of schools, medical services, sports facilities, community spaces and libraries.

Since early settlement, Charles Sturt has evolved into a thriving community. We're now a mix of residential, industrial and commercial land, with contemporary and highly valued heritage areas.

Our extensive transport networks are growing with exciting developments to better connect the West to the CBD with tram, train and bus upgrades happening now.

Charles Sturt is an innovative, contemporary City that is full of opportunities. Follow our social media channels to find out we love the Westside.
