Wife of former Adelaide Crows chairman Rob Chapman, Lisa Chapman tweets lockdown made beach peaceful

The high society wife of a former bank chief declared the short-lived statewide lockdown made her beach ‘eerily peaceful’.

Lisa Chapman, who is married to recently departed Adelaide Crows chairman Rob Chapman, appeared to see the upside of South Australia’s 1.8million residents being confined to their homes.

She posted a video taken from the front of her house overlooking Holdfast Bay. 

‘Day 1. An eerily peaceful view of our beach today. Well done SA!,’ she tweeted on Thursday morning.

The peace is set to be shortlived with South Australia’s planned six-day lockdown now being lifted on Saturday.

Mrs Chapman, 52, whose husband was previously the chief executive of Bank SA and the St George Bank, lives in a four-bedroom, five bathroom house at Somerton Park, near Glenelg in Adelaide’s upmarket west.

With SA residents banned from leaving home to exercise, at least until tomorrow, the well-heeled mother-of-four could at least spend lockdown enjoying her panoramic views of St Vincent Gulf.

The Chapmans paid $2million for their water view house in April 2007, when Rob Chapman was the managing director of BankSA.

That price 13 years ago was more than double today’s median house price of $840,000, CoreLogic data showed.

Lisa and Rob Chapman are also ‘founding ambassadors’ of the South Australian Medical Research Institute. 

Daily Mail Australia contacted Lisa Chapman, a language tutor, for a right of reply.

Lisa Chapman has showed her support for coronavirus lockdowns  by posting social media images of herself with British television personality Joanna Lumley and the hashtag ‘#StayAtHome.’

‘Protect your community against COVID-19,’ the meme said. 

Last month, she posted a sunset image near her house, as her husband finished his 12-year run as Adelaide Crows chairman and handed over to former SA Liberal premier John Olsen.

‘Hmm … not too shabby a sunset,’ she tweeted.

Rob Chapman is still on the board of Coopers Brewery and Adelaide Airport and is the executive chairman of Chapman Capital Partners, a boutique advisory business.

Since midnight on Thursday, South Australians have been banned from leaving home to exercise or buy takeaway food but one designated person from each household can leave to visit a supermarket, chemist, bottle shop or doctor. 

The six-day lockdowns are causing confusion with SA Police on Thursday tweeting: ‘You cannot leave the house to walk the dog or exercise.’

Police Commissioner Grant Stevens said South Australians could walk their dog to the supermarket.

‘Just in terms of people accessing essential goods and services, if you make a decision to walk to the shop, that’s certainly a legitimate decision,’ he said.

‘It’s a means of transport that we acknowledge. If you take your dog with you or not, that’s a matter for you.’
