Dog Registration and local council
Hillcrest is part of the City of Port Adelaide Enfield www.portenf.sa.gov.au. Hillcrest vet care is available at Walkerville Vet.
Walkerville Vet is straight down North East Road towards the city. Once you cross Hampstead Road you need to find the first u-turn to access our car park. Returning is a simple left turn back up North East Road. Alternatively, you can go via Mullers Road. Just after it becomes Regency Road look out for the end of Galway Avenue on the left, and turn down here. Drive all the way to North East Road, turn left and our sign is only two streets further on on the left.
