5 reasons defence families should call Springwood home

There’s a reason so many defence personnel and their families have decided to call Springwood home.

From safety to community spirit, proximity to the Edinburgh Defence Precinct and incentives for ADF personnel, when coupled with the huge range of land and house and land packages on offer, it’s clear that Springwood is the perfect home for defence families.

#1: Safe and strong community

Springwood is a safe, established and connected community in one of South Australia’s fastest growing areas.

When you choose to call Springwood home, you’ll be joining a neighbourhood with a like-minded community, who stay connected through regular events.

So, if or when you’re deployed, you can rest easy knowing that your family and house is safe and sound, being taken care of by a connected community surrounding them.

Springwood residents Belinda and Michael Oermann and their two children Matilda and Patrick love the community-atmosphere at Springwood.

“Springwood is such a lovely estate – it’s quiet, its peaceful, it’s very community-based, and they hold really nice events,” said Belinda.

“We’ve had street parties for Australia Day, Christmas and Halloween with our neighbours, and hold meet-and-greets too.

“Across the road from us now there are a couple of defence families, and they’ve all got kids that are about the same age as ours, so they play together and recognise each other from kindy.”

When you choose to call Springwood home, you’ll be part of the thriving Gawler community too. No matter your interests, there are plenty of opportunities to forge new relationships and build a sense of belonging.

#2: ADF personnel receive a $5K rebate!

#3: Family-oriented

From riding bikes down the street to the huge nature playground at Highfield Reserve, to playing footy with the neighbours’ kids on one of the many kickabout spaces – Springwood’s family-oriented nature lets kids be kids.

Some of South Australia’s best public and private schools are right on your doorstep at Springwood, as well as a range of childcare centres, preschools, a kindergym, children’s centres and playgroups.

Plus, in years to come, Springwood will welcome its very own reception through to year 7 primary school.

#4: Proximity to the Edinburgh Defence Precinct

Don’t waste precious time commuting to work every day – when you choose to call Springwood home, you could enjoy the convenience of living less than half an hour from work!

Springwood is an easy 25 minutes’ drive to the Edinburgh Defence Precinct, thanks to the opening of the brand new, six-lane Northern Connector, which forms part of the North-South Motorway.

But it’s not just commuting to Edinburgh that’s a breeze – the new Gawler East Link Road is making it easier and quicker for Springwood residents to commute to or from Adelaide and the northern suburbs. This exciting new connection from Main North Road bypasses central Gawler, and connects to Calton Road via the Springwood Village Centre.

#5: A better return on investment

Gawler East, home to Springwood, has been listed as one of South Australia’s top performing suburbs for climbing property values, a recent CoreLogic report has revealed!

With a median house value of $385,864, Gawler East has recorded an eight per cent increase in median value over the course of the year.

So, whether you’re planning on living at Springwood for a matter of months, years or a lifetime, you can rest assured knowing that you’re making a solid investment in your family’s financial future.
