About Prospect:
Prospect, located to the north of Adelaide’s city centre surrounded by the suburbs of Kilburn, Fitzroy, and Medindie. Prospect’s boundaries are defined by Main North Road to the East; Carter Street, Audley Avenue and Avenue Road to the South; The Gawler railway line on the west and Livingstone Avenue, Angwin Avenue and Henrietta Street north of Regency Road.

The suburb is well known for its proliferation of character, Victorian era houses, and stately 19th century mansions, although not as grand as those on Fitzroy Terrace. Prospect has developed an undeniable attraction as a cosmopolitan inner city location complete with trendy shops (Prospect Road), that is perfectly complemented by stunning homes on generous blocks ideally suited to family living. The suburb is very appealing to those who want to live near the city, but not in such busy suburbs as North Adelaide or the CBD.

Prospects most prestigious streets include Clifton Street (Median sale price $745,000) and Carter Street (Median sale price $720,000). Homes in Barker Street also fetch high prices, with one selling in 2006 for almost $2.15 million.

The Prospect Road Fashion Food and Wine Affair is hosted annually by the City of Prospect, an event which allows local traders to showcase their goods and services in the wider community. This event is generally held on the 2nd Sunday in November and is becoming larger and larger every year.

The first Prospect Post Office opened around 1861 and closed around 1872. A Nailsworth office (open from 1861) was renamed Prospect in 1874 and has remained open since then

In 1940 the area now known as Prospect was a series of localities from north to south

• West of Prospect Road – Prospect Estate, Highbury and Dudley Park

• East of Prospect Road – Blair Athol, Prospect Hill, St Johns Wood and Prospect
