"Be prepared to be pleasantly surprised...I was"

A surprisingly pleasant area to walk around. Alberton has a bad reputation, probably solely because it is home to the working class Port Adelaide Footy Club. But the streets have lovely old gums, are nice and wide with plenty of street parking. I've spent a lot of time down this way at various times. Coming to the oval to play or watch its always looked ok. But having recently gone back after so long, I was surprised how good the vibe was, how safe I felt with my kids. I think this is a great area ready to go boom.

It’s not far from the developing Port Adelaide area with plenty of shops and markets. It’s also an easy drive down Port Road into the city. There are some wonderful shops down at the Port so you should be able to get everything cheaply and of a high quality.

In can get a little busy around Alberton Oval on game days but not as bad as it once was.
I think this is an area to watch, as my last visit I was pleasantly surprised. One for families, dobn't dismiss it because it's Alberton...
