"Nice & easy"

Nice & easy place to live, easy commute to the city, beach & hills. plenty of shopping at Mitcham. Council need to keep sub division to a minimum.

"Lost little gem"

Great place to live & commute to city for work or social life. Easy access to hills or southern beaches & Fleurieu. Most people in Adelaide have no idea where Clapham is until you tell them. Very affordable for families or new home buyers. Nice size blocks.

"Quiet well maintained suburb - perfect for families."

We have been in Clapham for 2 years now and absolutely love it. The area is peaceful and well maintained and love that we can drive to work in under 20 minutes (we work in the CBD). Neighbours in our street are mostly young families and are very friendly. Blocks sizes are large and affordable. Great value suburb without any comprises.

"Onece you get away form the main roads its a nice area"

If you were just passing by Clapham on the main roads you wouldn't think much of it. However, it’s not far from the city and off the main tracks it really is a lovely area. There are tree lined streets and some lovely older houses making the area full of charm.

There is easy access to Marion and Unley road so there are plenty of shops to buy what you need.
It is well serviced by public transport, predominantly buses, making the trip over to Flinders University, Marion and the city very easy. The train could also be an option depending on where you are in Clapham.

It’s still affordable for what it is and where it is, although it’s getting a bit expensive for a lot of people.
