We often get a bad rap for not being as exciting as some of the Eastern States in liveability and lifestyle, however, Adelaide is proving time and time again that it is a wonderful city to live in, raise your children, and create the life you want.
We have it pretty great here, but we don’t want to alert too many people to just how great Adelaide is.
At McGrath we like to support local business, to employ local agents, and to live and breathe the coastal lifestyle. There are so many wonderful things about living in Adelaide, and here are just some of them to get you thinking.
It goes without saying that the team at McGrath love a trip to the beach, and Adelaide has some of the best only 15 mins from the city. We are spoilt for choice with places like Henley, Glenelg and Brighton so close to the CBD. We are also spoilt with many other beautiful beaches just a stone’s throw or a short car trip away.
We are lucky in Adelaide that most of us only commute a mere 20 to 30mins a day to get to and from work. We have ample parks to roam, open spaces, fresh air, and things to see and do on the weekends.
South Australia has arguably some of the best wine regions in Australia, if not the world. We are absolutely spoilt for choice with so many wonderful wine regions so close to our capital city. Day trips to the Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale or the Adelaide Hills are always a fun day out and a perfect chance to re-stock the cellar.
Adelaide has some of the best festivals going around, amazing events, incredible art galleries and museums, and a plethora of other things to do. We even have an ice skating rink in the heart of Glenelg this school holidays to entertain the young, and the young at heart.
Unlike our Eastern counterparts, you can still buy a beautiful family home in Adelaide and not break the bank, or have to work ‘til you’re 100.
There are so many options to get your foot into the market, whether that’s buying your next family home, or you’re simply wanting townhouse living. There really is something that will suit just about anyone.
