More information below
Morialta is part of the Adelaide Hills Council area and proudly distinct from the other, densely-built, infilled areas of Rostrevor, which are covered by Campbelltown Council.
Morialta is characterised by giant red gums, significant areas of remnant vegetation, large open blocks, underground powerlines, the meandering Spring Gully Creek, abundant wildlife and the neighbouring Morialta Conservation Park.
Local residents have worked for more than 50 years to nurture this environment, paying out of their own pockets to underground the area's electricity supply almost 30 years ago and planting and caring for areas of native vegetation.
The Morialta Residents' Association is committed to protecting and preserving this special environment, particularly when increasingly intensive urban infill and over-development is so radically changing the face of suburban Adelaide.
