A suburb in the capital city of Adelaide in Australia, Klemzig is a small town in the City of Port Adelaide Enfield. One of the earliest settlements of German immigrants in Australia, Klemzig was named after the village of Klemzig in the German state of Prussia, from where the immigrants had arrived. The same Klemzig is currently in western Poland, and goes by the name of Klepsk.
The suburb, in its early days, was a port and many ships docked here. Klemzig has seen a few changes at the hands of history. During the first World War, anti-German sentiment was high, and owing to the same reason, the name of the town was changed to Gaza, along with many other German towns. However, in 1935, the name was later changed back to Klemzig.
Today, Klemzig is a quiet, residential suburb area in Adelaide. Getting there is easy, with many bus services connecting the town to the rest of Australia. However, if you’re not too keen on taking the bus, then you can always opt for a car or truck hire to Klemzig. The town is also a short distance away from the Central Business District, which can also be reached by a car rental from Klemzig.
