History

This district was created at the 1976 redistribution and first represented in 1977.

Name origin:
Simpson Newland (1835-1925) belonged to a pioneer family and wrote the well-known book ‘Paving the Way’. He was a prominent advocate of moves to build locks on the River Murray and construct a north-south railway.

Size: Approximately 69.3 km²

Location: Approximately 15 km north-east of the Adelaide area, incorporating Tea Tree Gully and adjoining foothill suburbs and extending east into the Mount Lofty Ranges.

Key boundary changes compared to 2010: Newland gains the suburbs of Fairview Park, Surrey Downs and Yatala Vale, and the remainder of the suburb of Upper Hermitage. It loses the suburbs of Cudlee Creek and Paracombe, and parts of the suburbs of Chain of Ponds, Highbury, Inglewood and Millbrook.
