Saint Marys is a suburb in the local government area of the City of Mitcham. It is situated in the south of Adelaide’s city centre.
Saint Marys had emerged from the Great Depression, becoming one of the fastest growing suburbs in Adelaide today. It used to be a farming settlement in the early 1800s, and was named after an Anglican parish built in the area called St Mary's-on-the-Sturt. The church’s namesake was a parish in Kensington, England, the hometown of John Wickham Daws, one of the suburb’s first settlers.
Stroll through history
Saint Marys’ rich agricultural heritage can still be seen today, thanks to the efforts of its local council to promote its history. Walking tours are common in the suburb, during which one can catch a glimpse of its history. Staples of the tour include the St Marys Anglican Church and Cemetery, land areas surrounding the church, gum and olive trees planted by Saint Marys pioneer Ben Babbage (son of Charles Babbage), some antique houses, and picturesque reserves.
Most of the homes for sale in Saint Marys are existing properties or lots with a proposed housing plan. Spacious homes for rent are also on the market, as well as newly renovated apartment units. While the suburb is not awash with new developments, property investments are steadily coming in Saint Marys.
