The City of Tea Tree Gully is committed to creating vibrant, attractive public places, and to supporting activities that encourage private and corporate investment in this dynamic precinct.

Changes in the Tea Tree Gully Development Plan allow for higher-density developments close to Tea Tree Plaza in the heart of the precinct. And as a result of encouraging new, mixed-use and high-quality developments, we are seeing the first stages of Modbury’s renewal, and the launch of significant developments in the area.

Connection and Connectivity

Modbury is a smart city with free public Wi-Fi hotspots at the Tea Tree Gully Library and Waterworld, supplementing residential and business access to super-fast internet through the NBN and 4G coverage across the precinct.

Improved transport links to the CBD have made the area very accessible for residents, particularly with the O-Bahn busway linking the Modbury Precinct and Adelaide’s CBD. Modbury is also listed as a potential Transit Oriented Development (TOD) site within metropolitan Adelaide’s 30-Year Plan. 

People and Potential

Modbury is an important employment centre with 7,271 jobs according to the 2016 ABS Census. This was a 1.1% increase in jobs from the 2011 ABS Census. Modbury is also well-known for its relaxed lifestyle and relatively low cost of living. This is further enhanced by the array of natural open space reserves and walking and cycling trails in the area.

Average property values in the area are generally lower than the rest of Adelaide making the region an attractive investment option with strong potential for a high return on investment.

To foster sustainable, positive growth for Modbury, the City of Tea Tree Gully is committed to working in cooperation with developers and investors to support the success of their projects within the Modbury Precinct.
