History

Hammond was created at the 1994 boundary redistribution and was contested for the first time at the 1997 elections.

Name origin: Ruby Florence Hammond (1936-1993) was the first South Australian Aboriginal person to stand for parliament. She was active in public affairs and served the general community and her own Aboriginal people - particularly in relation to policy formulation - with great note.

Size: Approximately 6 245 km²

Location: Includes the rural hinterland farming area of South Australia to the south-east of metropolitan Adelaide and includes the historic river port of Goolwa near the Murray Mouth and the City of Murray Bridge on the River Murray.

Key boundary changes compared to 2010: Hammond loses the Southern Mallee District Council and the remainder of The District Council of Karoonda East Murray.
