"Wicked... Stroll to Adelaide or Norwood"

Kent Town is such a great happening spot... Only 2 kilometres to Rundle Mall, and a quick stroll (5-10 mins) to Hutt Street or to Rundle Street, where cafes are aplenty... Plenty of car parks in the main streets, even during the working day. Even when Clipsal is on, residents get special parking permits, so it makes life SO much easier.... Neighbours are super friendly. Norwood only 5-10 minutes away; leave the car at home and make a romantic stroll of it all.

"A great spot for renters, just a casual stroll from the CBD"

On the inner ring surrounding Adelaide, Kent Town is a great spot for renters looking for a convenient location. Just a 15 minute stroll to the west and you’ll be on Rundle Street on the edge of the CBD, and just a 15 minute stroll to the east and you’ll be in the heart of the Norwood café and shopping strip with all it has to offer.

Accommodation is Kent Town ranges from modern townhouses and apartments, such as the converted Brewery Apartments on Dequetteville Terrace, to much more modest homes (some in need of some work!). Rents are still on the high side for Adelaide because of the excellent location.

Parking can be difficult in this location, but you might be able to get by without a car due to the close proximity to shops, two of Adelaide’s three universities and the CBD. Just be careful walking near the parklands at night time.

Kent Town is home to the recently refurbished and slightly whacky ‘Tap Inn’ (fabulous tapas menu and pub meals, and also indoor golf driving range).
