Ring road around Brougham Gardens

Brougham Place is a street lined with large mansions set in landscaped grounds in the Adelaide suburb of North Adelaide, South Australia. It surrounds Brougham Gardens, (Park 29 of the Adelaide Park Lands), that joins the three grids that comprise North Adelaide. It was named after Henry Brougham, 1st Baron Brougham and Vaux. He was a staunch supporter of the 1832 Reform Act and the passing of this Act led to the third and successful attempt to found a colony in SA in 1834.[1]

Brougham Place starts and finishes at its intersection with LeFevre Terrace and Stanley Street and runs anti-clockwise around Brougham Gardens.[2] Like other streets in the City of Adelaide with properties only along one side, numbering is sequential from 1 to 228. There is also a short stretch of Brougham Place south of Melbourne Street opposite Roberts Gardens.
