Oaklands Estate Residents’ Association
Founded in 1952 by residents with a vision
Managed today by residents with a passion
Oaklands Estate is a small portion of the City of Marion in Adelaide, South Australia. It comprises the triangular area bounded by the River Sturt, Oaklands Road and the Adelaide/Seaford rail line.
It was named because the first European settler here planted a large number of oak trees on the estate. Today there are only a few remaining oak trees which can be found on the Oaklands Estate Reserve.
The district has been granted status as a Character Zone on the basis of its trees and environment.
