"A convenient location adjacent to the city and parklands"

Hackney is an inner city suburb, and a very convenient spot for the professional couple. Immediately opposite the National Wine Centre and Botanic Gardens, Hackney is a picturesque suburb with many renovated cottages, large homes and a retirement village.

Hackney is just a short walk from the CBD, only about 10 mins. Buses are available, but timing can be awkward. Taxis to here from the CBD will only cost $8 or so. Walking around the area at night is best avoided.

Rundle Street is only a 10 minute walk away, where you have a huge choice of restaurants and cafés. There are a couple of nearby pubs (the Hackney and the Royal), although both are centred around pokies. The Hackney is the nicer of the two, and good for a casual meal or to watch a game of sport.

The River Torrens and its picturesque walking/cycling trails are just a 5 minute walk away, so it's the perfect spot for the jogging enthusiast.

For grocery shopping, you will need to hop in the car and head to one of the nearby suburbs. The Avenues in Magill is the closest and is a great complex, just a 5 minute drive away. There is only a small shop nearby for last minute groceries (a Woolworths Express in the petrol station on Hackney Road).

Hackney is a convenient suburb that is incredibly close to the CBD, but it lacks a real heart or social hub. However it is neatly wedged between North Adelaide and Norwood, both with a huge range of cafés and restaurants which can be easily accessed in just minutes from Hackney.
