One of Adelaide’s premier green suburbs, Kensington Gardens is within walking distance of the heart of the Festival City, with its shops, theatres, restaurants, gardens, sports grounds and parks, many of which straddle the Torrens River and its lake.
Adelaide is a delightful, people-friendly city in which the bustling central business district is totally surrounded by a green belt - a city made for walking and smelling the roses.
It is also a city of great diversity, renowned for its heritage sites, food, wine and arts which attracts culture vultures from round the globe every two years for an Arts Festival acknowledged as one of the best three in the world.
Kensington Gardens is part of Adelaide's City of Parks, the Burnside municipality. Burnside's signature is the jacaranda tree which bursts into magnificent purple blooms in spring and dominates the streetscapes.
The municipality is also home to Penfold's foundation winery, Magill Estate. Just 15 minutes from the centre of Adelaide, Magill is a living museum tracing the fortunes of one of Australia's first wine families.
