Lying just to the north of the heart of Adelaide, the City of Prospect is an inner-urban community of 19,000 people living in heritage-rich, tree-lined residential streets transected by major arterial roads. Well-kept parks and reserves enhance the quality of life.
Adelaide is respected round the world as one of the great festival cities. Every two years it stages a celebration of culture and art that is recognised as one of the top three festivals in the world.
It is also a genuine market city. Hub of the open air shopping scene is the inner city Central Market in the Chinatown precinct behind the Hilton Hotel. It is here that you will find cordon bleu chefs and housewives, tourists and secretaries, pollies and painters brushing shoulders as they wander from stall to stall in search of the pick of the garden fresh fruit and vegetables and other produce.
The East End Market in Rundle also draws bargain hunters to the city at weekends to shop for fresh fish, meat, vegetables, clothing and jewellery, while suburban stall-holders set up at the Brickworks Market.
