Ethelton is a north-western suburb of Adelaide 13 km (8.1 mi) from the CBD, on the Lefevre Peninsula, in the state of South Australia, Australia. It is a residential suburb within the local government area of City of Port Adelaide Enfield, adjacent to the suburbs of Semaphore, Semaphore South, Glanville and New Port. It is bounded to the north by Hart Street, to the south by Bower Road and in the west by Swan Terrace and in the east by Causeway Road.


The suburb is not served by a public primary school. The nearest are Le Fevre Primary School in Birkenhead and Westport Primary School in Semaphore Park. The area was previously serviced by Ethelton Primary School, but the campus was closed when the school amalgamated with Semaphore Primary School (to form Westport Primary, mentioned above). The local high school is Le Fevre High School, in nearby Semaphore South. There is a private school in the suburb, Portside Christian School (Reception to Year 12). The John Hart Oval at the north-western corner is the main recreational facility in the suburb. Ethelton includes the Jervois Bridge on Hart St over the Port River. There is little commercial activity in the area, as Port Adelaide is nearby. New Port Quays is a new housing development on the Port River and is next to Ethelton. This is a good area for walking trails and is also heavily patronised by cyclists.


As of 2020 the 333 bus services Bower Road and Hart Street, while suburb is also served by the 651, 657, 662, 665, and 672.

The suburb also is serviced by a train station on the Outer Harbor railway line, the Ethelton railway station, and the H1 Outer Harbor to City train substitute service.
