The City of Prospect aims to create an inclusive, vibrant community feel, and achieves this with a variety of events throughout the calendar year. Prospect Road is fast-becoming one of Adelaide’s premier cafe strips, with a variety of small restaurants, cafes, retail stores and a new cinema complex.

Geographically, the suburb is about 5km2 and has a diverse mix of real estate. Many large villas and bungalows still exist, on big family-sized blocks of land. While contemporary townhouses and units provide a cost-effective way into the suburb.

Prospect Estate

A popular location for events and weddings, or just a stroll through some open green space away from the bustle, Prospect Estate is a tranquil park.

With a fountain, creek, rock pools and large towering trees, it a shady and cool escape in summer-time.

Public art

With a strong arts focus, there’s a mix of street art in the form of sculpture, murals and commissioned graffiti art.

While the Stobie Poles of the area are disappearing with the power moving underground, many of those that remain showcase the work of local artists.

Cafe strip

Predominantly the stretch up to Gladstone / Alpha Rd, Prospect Road has a huge variety of cafes and restaurants. Italian or Greek, breakfast or lunch, coffee or cocktails… there’s variety galore.


The council hosts a variety of events throughout the calendar year – from exhibitions, to street fairs, and performances for everyone in the family – the City of Prospects strongly promotes community.
