Queenstown is a north-western suburb of Adelaide about 10.5 km from the CBD, in the state of South Australia, Australia and the city council area of Port Adelaide Enfield.

Queenstown occupies a triangular-shaped area of land which is bounded by the Port Road to the north-east, Old Port Road to the south-west and by Webb Street to the north-west.


The first Queenstown Post Office opened around 1865 and closed around 1869. An Alberton West office was renamed Queenstown East in 1948, then Queenstown in 1966 before closing in 1976.

The former Whittaker Memorial Primitive Methodist Church, later the Queenstown Church of Christ, at 193-195 Port Road, is listed on the South Australian Heritage Register.
