Features of the district

Location

This outer suburban electoral district is located in the north of metropolitan Adelaide, covering part of the City of Playford.

Area

Approximately 24.5 km2

Localities

Elizabeth incorporates the suburbs of Blakeview, Craigmore, Elizabeth, Elizabeth Downs, Elizabeth East, Elizabeth Grove, Elizabeth Park and a portion of Elizabeth South.

History

The district of Elizabeth, as it exists now, was created at the 2016 boundary redistribution to replace the former district of Little Para, and was represented for the first time in 2018. A previous electoral district of Elizabeth existed from 1970 to 2006. The electoral district was renamed to Little Para in the 2003 boundary redistribution when a number of the suburban areas bearing the name Elizabeth were divided into two separate electorates. Most of those suburban areas were reunited by the 2016 boundary redistribution.

Origin of the name

The district was named Elizabeth after the former local government area of the City of Elizabeth, which included the many suburban areas bearing the name Elizabeth. All of those were originally named in honour of the sitting monarch.

Key boundary changes following the 2020 redistribution

Elizabeth loses the suburb of Elizabeth Vale and a portion of the suburb of Elizabeth South.
