Adelaide travel safety advice

The outer suburbs of Salisbury East and Para Hills are known for rock-throwing incidents involving buses. These include routes 205, 206, 560, 225, 226, T500, 229. In early 2009, there were violent incidents and social disturbances in Davoren Park, a northern Adelaide suburb, avoid being there at night. Many of the suburban railway stations are rundown and poorly maintained with poor lighting and graffiti ridden bus stop style shelters. If you catch a train at a suburban station, it is best to arrive at the station within 1-2 min of the scheduled arrival time. Trains in Adelaide are normally fairly reliable and arrive and depart on schedule. There are security guards on all trains after 7PM and many rail services have bus connections available. Exercise personal safety especially at Adelaide, Woodville and Noarlunga stations and on the Gawler and the Noarlunga lines. In Adelaide, car theft and break-ins are common. Do not leave valuables in view in unattended vehicles at any time, even for a few minutes. Adelaide is no more dangerous than any other Australian city of similar size. If you do not look for trouble, you will rarely find it. Police actively patrol the city centre, especially Hindley Steet, the latter being where many of the city's nightclubs and bars are located. Taxi ranks are located near the Adelaide Casino on North Terrace, the Hilton Adelaide Hotel on Victoria Square, and the junction of Rundle Street and Pulteney Steet outside the Hungry Jacks fast food outlet. Avoid the City Parklands areas after dusk on all sides of the city, but most particularly off West Terrace. These areas are isolated and have little or no lighting making them frequent locations for assaults. There are often homeless and intoxicated groups of people who gather there who may cause trouble with passers-by.
