About Elizabeth

Elizabeth is bounded by Dauntsey Road in the north, Main North Road in the east, Fairfield Road and Ridley Road in the South, and the Gawler railway line in the west. The suburb is named after Queen Elizabeth II.

The area began development when the South Australian Housing Trust established a new town to accommodate the growth in immigration, population and industrial development in 1955. During the 1960’s and 1970’s rapid growth took place, following by a decline of population in the 1990’s. There was then an increase in population between 2001 and 2006 as a result of new dwellings being added to the area.

Elizabeth is an established residential area, with a large commercial centre. Elizabeth has many major features including Elizabeth Shopping Centre, Elizabeth Aquadome, Elizabeth Magistrates Court, Council offices, TAFE of SA (Elizabeth Campus), Dauntsey Reserve, Hamra Homes Oval (home of the Central District Football Club), Playford Gardens, Ridley Reserve and a number of schools.

About Elizabeth North

Elizabeth North is named for the area north of Elizabeth, which is named after Queen Elizabeth II.

The area began development when the South Australian Housing Trust established a new town to accommodate the growth in immigration, population and industrial development in 1955. During the 1960′s and 1970′s rapid growth took place, following by a decline of population in the 1990′s due to little change in dwelling stock and a decline in the average number of persons living in each dwelling. Much of the area being redeveloped under the Rosewood Redevelopment project has resulted in recent stock loss.
