"Such an Icon, Brighton WOW"

So you want to know a little bit about Brighton hey.. well let me tell you all about Brighton in South Australia.

Brighton is one of Adelaide's most stunning coastal suburbs in my opinion.
Sure Brighton has its ups and downs, some streets are better than others, but the overall feel is amazing. It is only a 25 minute drive to the city and hosts one of Adelaide's best beaches. The neighbours are friendly and the streets at night are super quiet and safe, very different to it's mate Glenelg.

If your after not only a home but a lifestyle then Brighton is the place to be. With it's amayzing line up of boutique shops and cafes down Jetty Street why live anywhere else!
Pros
  • Beautiful suburb
  • Clean
  • Close to just about everything
Cons
  • Not much to do for Teenagers
  • Crossing Brighton Road

"Love this area"

Very close to the beach and public transport. Friendly area and close to major shopping centres, hospital, schools and the swimming centre. Nice little parks. Depending on which street you live on you may get the occasional sirens or loud cars but for the most part very peaceful. I personally plan on moving back to this area with my daughter in the next few months. Beautiful area if you like to be close to everything.

"Sunny side up!"

A great place to call home is this popular beachside suburb offering some of the best beaches across Adelaide. You will see many people throughout the day walking, running and exercising along the esplanade and provides for a safe place to swim, windsurf or relax. Jetty road has the cafe strip and many restaurants while a spread of other fantastic places to eat are along Brighton Road. A number of train stations run through the suburb that link to far south and ideal for catching a lift to the city. A real vibe exists here and a very easy place to live with plenty of shopping and things to entertain.

"One of Adelaide's Premier Beachside suburbs"

My family and I have lived in Brighton for over 35 years. The childrens education is well catered for here with a variety of both Private and public schools within easy access - Some of these schools require that you are residing within a specifically zoned area to be eligible to attend, so be sure to check with your school of choice on this. A variety of specialty shops are located along Jetty Rd Brighton as well as many quality Cafes & Restaurants. Westfield Marion is the major regional shopping centre and is only minutes away by car or if you don't drive there is an excellent bus service plus a train service to the city (only approx 20 minutes away). An Olympic size swimming pool is currently under construction adjacent Westfield. Flinders University & Hospital are within 10 mins drive. Brighton is a real Community, ideal for families, busy professionals or retirees and offers one of the best Beaches along the Coast!
