hope that helps alan and laura taylor aberfoyle park soon to be woodcroft.:D
Hi There, according to our map there is an area called "Wilfred Taylor reserve" just below Woodcroft we were looking about 1km below there. Karen..
Hi you are just mins away from shops and schools ect if you want any more advice give us a call 0882706046 all the best alan and laura.
wiil do this week.......thanks
When we first got here one of my favourite areas was Onkaparinga Hills. At the time I did not drive so for us the area was a non starter.
It is a lovely area but there is no immediate shops or schools so both would be a drive away. I think there is a bus route but nearest train would be at Noarlunga Centre.
Guzler & Sas are building a house (and very nice it looks too) there so I am sure she will have much more info in what exactly is around :o
Am driving now so things may be different if we were to look again. It has been in the paper a lot recently though due to residents fighting a re-zoning of some of the rural land for building purposes so may be another thing worth looking into

Onk Hills is where we live and have for the last seven years.
It is really divided into two areas - the Huntingdale Estate (Built around 85 - 95)with a few houses /streets surrounding and then larger plots of land/farms/smallholding/horsey land.
We live between with a small acreage that gives us the impression we are in the middle of nowhere.All amenities are withing easy reach but yet we are just a little set back from busy life.
It is fairly quiet here but we like it that way :D
opps missed this post! Totally agree with Tyke on this one. We have friends who live there, visit them loads and fell in love with the place. Saw our plot of land for sale and went for it. Hoping to be residents by Xmas - can't wait!
It is such a beautiful area but shuch a shame it may be rezoned and turned into yet another housing estate sold off to developers
With any luck the residents fight will not be in vain and it will stay as beautiful as it is - if this goes through which will be the next rural area to be ripped apart? It is a shame as one of our dreams was a large block for our house and now the plots are all being split so you are left with tiny or non existant gardens once your house is on
