There is considerable accommodation available in Adelaide, but if you are going to rely on public transport, you will probably find it best to choose a place in the City or possibly, North Adelaide and the Eastern suburbs.


Saint Ignatius’ College is located at 2 Manresa Ct, Athelstone SA 5076 in the Adelaide foothills – about 20 minutes by car from the city centre and 15 minutes from Norwood.


Please find below a list of possible places for you to stay – Many thanks to Dragana Zulfic but spend some time on the Net before making your decision – there are many useful tools you can use that will make life much easier for you – and it will also be fun.


The most important aid maybe and it will help you find the distance between your accommodation and the school –and the possible route. Also, check for a complete guide to the public transport.
