Transport

Plympton International College is located 7kms to the west of the city of Adelaide's Central Business District and 3kms to the east of Adelaide's famous tourist destination Glenelg and its beach. The school's central western suburbs location makes it highly accessible using a range of popular transport methods, in particular public transport.

WALKING TO SCHOOL

Plympton is a relatively quiet, primarily residential suburb which makes walking to school quite a safe option, however, care should always be taken on higher volume commuter roads around the school such as Mooringe Avenue, Marion Road and Anzac Highway.

Gates to the school grounds can be found off of Errington Street or Streeters Road at the front of the school (closer to Mooringe Avenue / Marion Road), or at the rear of the school from Emma Place / Boswarva Avenue (closer to Anzac Highway).

ARRIVING BY CAR

Parents can drop off students out the front of the school in a 'Kiss and Go' drop off zone in Errington Street, Plympton. This street is not a major arterial road, with the majority of the street comprising residential houses, therefore it offers a quite safe passage for students entering and leaving the school.

Access is also available to students through the park in Myer Avenue.

Please note: The Myer Avenue entrance to the school is exclusively for school staff only - strictly no drop off or pick-up of students from this carpark. Parking is not allowed in this zone.
