History of Adelaide Through Street Names

Introduction and Map

These 63 names for the Streets and Squares of Adelaide were bestowed by a committee on the 23rd May 1837, two months after the first land sales in Adelaide had taken place.

They represent, except in a few cases, founders, friends and promoters of South Australia. Some of the pioneer/founders had laboured for over 6 years to establish the colony.
