Suburb Overview

Stirling is a town located in the Adelaide Hills. It is administered by the Adelaide Hills Council. Its population is about 2500, though the town has largely merged with neighbouring townships such as Crafers and Aldgate. The towns closely surrounding it are: Aldgate, Crafers, Bridgewater and Heathfield. Out of those five, Stirling is one of the most popular to live in, This is because Stirling has a large main street and has more specific shops.

Founded in 1888, Stirling grew rapidly as a result of the expansion of apple growing and market gardening to satisfy the demand of the expanding city of Adelaide, whose centre is only 15 kilometres from Stirling. It was also developed as a residence for Englishmen who could not cope with Adelaide's hot summers. Today, farming has declined as more of the region has been urbanised, with many Stirling residents commuting to Adelaide daily. The Stirling area is a popular holiday home location for wealthy Adelaideans wishing to escape the summer heat. As a result many historic, grand mansions can be found in the area.

Owing to the wet and mild climate, many deciduous trees have been imported from Europe, and these are a popular tourist attraction in the autumn months. Other tourist sites include the nearby Belair National Park and Cleland Conservation Park.

Owing to its location near Mount Lofty, Stirling is the wettest place in South Australia, receiving an average of 1200 millimetres of rain per year - more than twice the average of Adelaide. Between May and August, the average monthly rainfall is as high as 155 millimetres, and in June 1916, over 450 millimetres fell. Mean summer temperatures are about 5

The Australian Bureau of Meteorology stopped the collection of weather data at Stirling from the 1980s onward. Weather recording instruments were removed from the grounds of Australia Post's Stirling office following a commercial dispute between these two Australian government organisations.

Stirling is located in the state electorate of Heysen and in the federal Division of Mayo. The local council is the Adelaide Hills Council in the Mt Lofty and Manoah wards.

A prominent landmark in Stirling is the historical Stirling Theatre, home to the Hills Musical Company, Stirling Players and Hills Youth Theatre. Stirling also has a strong affinity with books and has been referred to as South Australia's 'Book Village'. This relates to the close proximity of varied book venues Chapter Two Books, Matilda Bookshop, The Hut Book Shed and the Coventry Memorial Library.

The Stirling community is protected from fire, road crash and Hazardous Materials by the Stirling Country Fire Service Volunteers. In 2006, the Adelaide Hills Council stepped up efforts to relocate the station to Crafers, against the wants of the volunteers. The council proposed the move in order to sell the land currently inhabited by the CFS station on Avenue road, to fund a new Library. However, in mid 2006 the council elected to sell the land the fire station was on to SAFECOM. The new Library started construction anyway, in early 2007 and was completed the following year.
