Location convenience

Prospect is located just 6kms north (approx.) of the Adelaide CBD. It is widely known for its demographic diversity, colourful personality, sense of community and eclectic dining experiences.

Prospect Road extends from North Adelaide to Prospect’s northern boundary at Regency Road before continuing through Blair Athol to Grand Junction Road. On Prospect’s southern boundary are the highly prestigious suburbs of Fitzroy, Thorngate and Medindie, perched on the glorious greenbelt fringe of North Adelaide.

Shopping and dining experiences

The eclectic hub in the centre of Prospect is home to a range of quirky cafes, vibrant restaurants, intimate wine bars and entertainment experiences such as the Palace Nova Cinemas.

Prospect’s lively vibe is brought about by a plethora of shopping opportunities and bustling markets including the Northpark Shopping Centre, Churchill Centre, Coles, Aldi, Mekko Market & Café, Vine Street Markets and a collection of boutique stores.

Homes in Prospect

We love Prospect’s character, boasting a diverse range of grand old bungalows and picturesque symmetrical villas on large and leafy blocks. But the thriving suburb of Prospect is also home to many low-maintenance lifestyle opportunities such as modern apartments and freshly-built contemporary homes on courtyard allotments.

From Prospect’s inner boundary closest to North Adelaide, buyers can find a range of luxury homes reflecting their close-to-city prestige. Further north and north-west are great options for affordable buying and first home buying within the city of Prospect.

The median house price in Prospect to January 2024 was $1,050,000. Units in Prospect are quite affordable, with a median price of $450,000 to January 2024.

Family-friendly living

Along with diverse eateries and entertainment, Prospect features a wide range of family-focused recreational opportunities including Prospect Oval and Memorial Playground, Prospect Tennis Club, Churchill Road skatepark and expansive leafy reserves such as St Helens Park.

Families love the education options in and around Prospect, including:

  • Blackfriars Priory School (R-12),
  • Rosary School (R-6)
  • Prescott College (7-12)
  • Prospect Primary School
  • Prospect North Primary School.

Easy public transport options

For commuters there is an abundance of bus stops along Churchill Road, Main North Road and Prospect Road.

Prospect’s western boundary runs along the railway line to include Dudley Park and Islington railway stations with Ovingham train station just across the border in the south-west corner.
