The City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters comprises one of Adelaide’s best concentrations of early, mid and late-Victorian residential buildings, ranging from small settler cottages to large Italianate villas and mansions.[1]

  • Norwood was previously a working class suburb and attracted many European migrants post-World War 2. It still has a very high concentration of people of Italian background. This is reflected in the restaurants and fashion boutiques of The Parade.
  • Each year The Parade hosts the Norwood Parade Food and Wine Festival, attracting over 80,000 visitors.
  • Norwood’sworking class heritage and bohemian character can be ascertained from the political voting patterns; it tends to be moreleft-wing in nature than the other eastern suburbs around it.
  • Norwood is a leafy suburb many of whose streets are lined with plane trees and older houses, though in recent years, due to a State Government initiative of “urban-infill”, there have been more higher density (by Adelaide standards) developments.
  • It is now a sought-after suburb to live in, but this was not always the case.[2]
