"Ridleyton. Home to South Australia's Well Kept Secrets!"

Ridleyton is a north western suburb, with well landscape gardens and lots of quallity homes.

If you are looking for a good night life, everything is close by. 8 minutes to the city, the Brompton Pub, and among others.

There is some lovely parks in the area, which have been looked after very well.

So this is a suburb to look out for.
Pros
  • Beautiful, clean, safe, quiet, and friendly suburb.
  • Close to EVERYTHING
  • Mix of old & new homes
  • Parks, big & small
Cons
  • The odd commercial building

"Small City fringe suburb - Close to EVERYTHING!"

I've lived in Ridleyton since 2000. We love it here. Easy to get around, close to town, North Adelaide, etc. In the old days, it was called Croydon, the name changed on the eastern side of South Rd about 30 years ago. Most people don't know where it is. Sits between Brompton and South Rd, & Torrens Rd to the railway line. Got everything you need close by. Just 5 kms to CBD.

"Location Location Location!!!!"

So close to the city and North Adelaide!

Better neighbourhood and streetscape than Brompton & Bowden.

Local pubs, supermarket, liquor store, restaurants closeby.

Public transport is excellent with plenty of buses and now that the tram has been extended to the Entertainment Centre.

Perfect location.
