"30 years of living in Moana and it just keeps getting better!"

Moana is a fantastic area and the best suburb in Adelaide that I've lived. We're in front of the beautiful Moana South beach which is amazing all year round, especially for the kids in summer. As no cars can proceed onto this part of the beach, it's like our own private slice of paradise. Many locals appreciate Deep Blue Cafe which do great food and coffee. Shops, schools, doctors and transport are all close by which makes things convenient. All of my neighbours have been here for just as long which gives the place a great community feel. This is a place that many visit for a holiday so I consider myself lucky to be on holiday all year round!

  • Beautiful beach
  • Local schools

  • close proximity to restaurants and shops
  • On a bus route

"A relaxing holiday lifestyle at the beach with superb prospects for very strong growth"

Moana is renowned for it's wide sandy beaches and casual & carefree lifestyle.The local residents are friendly with a great community spirit. The area is experiencing a gradual re-invention of itself and in the process where once weather beaten timber beach cottages provided summer fun for families,they are now making way for brand new upmarket houses & townhouses for familys to call home and enjoy all year round.Recent major capital works have included the nearby Seaford Shopping Centre and Commercial Precinct as well as the Seaford Hotel on Commercial Road & Griffiths Drive, the new Moana Surf Club, and the refurbishment of a number of parks and reserves.As the area continues to mature so to will the needs of the community. The development of upmarket homes brings with it a change to the socio-economic structure and with this will be greater demand for facilities such as cafe's,restaurants and the like. Moana has always been immensely popular across the majority of demographic profiles and with the introduction of the southern expressway, rail extension to Seaford the popularity will now be matched by improved accessibility. Accordingly we anticipate very high growth prospects over the coming years.

"Love it"

I moved to moana because of the beach and it's close proximity to wineries and great restaurants in mclaren vale. My boys attend the local Catholic school that we consider to be excellent. I have spent many mornings (and evenings) having meals at the fabulous and ever popular 'deep blue cafe' that offer excellent coffee and lazy weekend breakfasts. It is very quiet and I have never had any issues with neighbours or theft. A wonderful place to live. Considering people come from everywhere to holiday here, I consider to be very fortunate living here every day of the year!
