The District Council of Rosewater was a local government area of South Australia immediately east of Port Adelaide from 1877 to 1899.

History[edit]

The council was established in 1877, centred on the 'Rosewater' subdivision on Grand Junction Road, about 1.8 kilometres (1.1 mi) south east of Port Adelaide.[1]

The council was abolished in 1899, being the last small neighbour of Port Adelaide to be absorbed into the larger corporate town.
