Tranquilly nestled in the Adelaide Hills, Scott Creek’s scenic valley offers its residents an enviable lifestyle just 25 minutes from Adelaide’s CBD.
Its cooler wetter climate once made it an area of thriving dairies, market gardens and orchards, but today many of those those who live in the small rural properties dotted along the creek and over its green hillsides commute elsewhere to work while their children attend excellent local schools.
Among them are nurses, teachers, engineers, builders, artists, government workers, entertainers, accountants, retirees and trades people. A few properties are still used commercially with many residents enjoying growing their own fruit and vegetables. Hay is also grown and cut on many properties as stock feed.
All share an appreciation for the peaceful natural environment, clean air, scenic beauty, frequent encounters with wildlife and the sense of belonging to a community which is evident at social events or in times of need.
Steeped in history, the Scott Creek Progress Association (SCPA) works for the benefit the local community, encouraging interaction and supporting local groups and interests. The SCPA uniquely owns freehold the Scott Creek Soldiers Memorial Hall and manages the Scott Creek Oval on behalf of the Adelaide Hills Council. Recent projects include the building of a pleasant shelter for those visiting the local cemetery at Scott Creek.
SCPA always appreciates the community’s involvement, interest, ideas and support – all are welcome.
