I live and work in the federal seat of Adelaide and am passionate about the area I represent. I believe that Adelaide offers the best quality of life of any of Australia's capitals, with the natural beauty of our heritage buildings and parklands and our abundance of quality restaurants and vibrant arts scene.
The electorate of Adelaide covers an area of approximately 75 sq km from Grand Junction Road in the north to Cross Road in the south. Suburbs include Ashford, Clarence Park, Enfield, Goodwood, Kent Town, Keswick, Kilburn, Maylands, North Adelaide, Northgate, Norwood, Parkside, Prospect, Rose Park, St Peters, Toorak Gardens, Unley, Vale Park, Walkerville and the City of Adelaide.
The electorate is named after the city of Adelaide which in turn was named after Queen Adelaide, wife of William IV.
