History

The district, previously named Spence, was created at the 1998 boundary redistribution and first contested and represented in 2002.

Origin of the name

The district of Croydon takes its name from the local suburb of the same name, which in turn takes its name after the town and borough in south London. The South Australian village of Croydon was laid out in 1855 and comprised Croydon Farm of 40 acres, the remainder being subdivided into five acre lots.

Key boundary changes following the 2020 redistribution

Croydon gains the suburb of Kilburn as well as a portion of the suburb of Prospect. Croydon loses the suburb of Athol Park and the remainder of Allenby Gardens, Welland and West Hindmarsh.
