Semaphore is a north-western seaside suburb of the LeFevre Peninsula, 14 km from the CBD and is part of the City of Port Adelaide Enfield. It is adjacent to Semaphore South, Glanville, Exeter and Largs Bay. Semaphore is primarily a residential suburb, although its seaside location makes it a popular local tourist destination, with numerous restaurants, takeaway food outlets and other tourism-oriented businesses. During weekends of the summer months the beach is patrolled by the Semaphore Surf Life Saving club. Walking along the historic jetty is popular and the jetty is the focus of cultural events, such as the annual Kite Festival and Greek Festival. The local public primary school is LeFevre Primary School in the neighbouring suburb of Birkenhead. The local high school is LeFevre High School in the neighbouring suburb of Semaphore South. The only school located in Semaphore is Dominican Primary School, a private school run by the Catholic Education Office. Another nearby faith-based private school is Portside Christian College in neighbouring Ethelton, a primary and secondary school. Semaphore Road has numerous retail stores, restaurants, clothing boutiques and gift retailers. Residents appreciate a butcher, bakery, fruit shop, post office, gym, newsagency, supermarkets, chemists and hairdressers. Semaphore also caters to the seaside attraction during the summer months, with Fish and Chips, Ice Cream, Coffee shops, a public playground that was redone in 2014, and the Semaphore Water Slide Amusement Park, there is no wonder Semaphore Road was voted the People's Choice Award for best main Street in South Australia for 2014.
