Torrensville is in the City of West Torrens local government area, the South Australian House of Assembly electoral district of West Torrens and the Australian House of Representatives Division of Hindmarsh.
Both the state and federal MPs, representing the electoral districts that include Torrensville, are notable Greek Australians: Tom Koutsantonis and Steve Georganas of the Australian Labor Party. Their success in winning office is partly due to the high population of Greek Australians in their electoral districts, mostly from Torrensville, neighbouring Thebarton, and neighbouring Mile End which contains St. George, Adelaide's largest Greek Orthodox church.
Revitalization of the Adelaide's inner suburbs has made Henley Beach Road a vibrant shopping area with many cafes and restaurants.
New Thebarton Post Office opened on 1 November 1879 and was renamed Torrensville in 1909.
