History

Adelaide has been used as a district name since 1902. In 1856 the electoral district of the 'City of Adelaide' was first created as one of the 17 House of Assembly districts. In 1861 it became 'East Adelaide' and reverted to the name 'Adelaide' in 1901.

Name origin: Queen Adelaide was the wife of King William IV when the site for the capital of the new Province was chosen in 1836. Adelaide is the only Australian capital city to be named after a woman.

Size: Approximately 23.4 km²

Location: The district includes the central business district of the State capital, all city parklands and the largely residential suburbs to the immediate north and northeast of the city.

Key boundary changes compared to 2010: No changes.
