Why We Love the Westside

Love The Westside logoWe have got everything you could ever want in a community. From the city to the sea, there is no other place better to be.

The Water

The Water

We have 14kms of amazing beaches, we have (the clean parts of) the Torrens, we have the dragon boat and rowing at West Lakes… throw in some amazing wetlands and duck ponds and we win. Boom.

Our People

Our People

From the super rich to the not so flush; from the Kaurna people who have been here forever to those who have just arrived, our people always find a way to connect.

Sunsets

Sunsets

Combined with our kick ass beaches, what’s not to love about the fiery send off the sun gives us each night?

The Best Shops

The Best Shops

Megashopolis x2 at ‘Westies’ and Arndale: most of same shops as Burnside, with a westside welcome, plus our cute corner stores.

Animals Galore

Animals Galore

We can’t turn around without stepping on a canine creature, or go for a walk without venturing into a dog park. We have very special bees who may just save the world too!

The Dunes

The Dunes

We have the only remaining dunes along our metropolitan coastline - our Tennyson Dunes Conservation Reserve is pretty unique.

The Best Pubs

The Best Pubs

From The Land of Promise and the Ramma to the newly minted hipster hotspots, our pubs keep it real and authentic.

Striking Streets

Striking Streets

Away from the CBD, a dish of deliciousness awaits at Queen Street, or wander through towering Norfolk pines on your way to smashed avo on Jetty Street.

Hindmarsh Cemetery

Hindmarsh Cemetery

The second oldest in Adelaide. Full of stories about a hard working community and those that established dynasties on its riches. Drama!

Henley Square

Henley Square

Named after a shape, that’s where the similarities end. Kids, oldies, and toddlers somehow manage to share a space rich in flavour, culture and activity.

Our Houses

Our Houses

Cheaper than the East but exactly the same… oh wait, except closer to the beach and the CBD. Check out the beautiful large villas in Woodville Park, perfectly lined by trees.

Libraries

Libraries

We have about 800 of them. Not really, but we do have 5 libraries plus a mobile one that takes books to residents who can’t get to their local. Warm fuzzies right there!

Connected Culture

Connected Culture

We always brag about our diversity and culture, with good reason. We speak over 100 languages, and have some amazing groups that call our city home.

Sia

Sia

Welllll… not really. But she did start out playing at The Gov, which is totally our local live music venue, and if it wasn’t for us, she wouldn’t have played there. Sia, you rock.

Centre Stage

Centre Stage

The Entertainment Centre for all functions, or Hindmarsh Stadium for soccer. Add the historic Woodville Town Hall, a rare gem from the golden age of cinema.

The video below celebrates the City’s points of difference, through its iconic locations, coastline, economic opportunities, people and attractions.

Many of us are already in the know, but find out why so many people love the Westside.
