|Namesake||Adelaide, South Australia|
|Area||76 km2 (29.3 sq mi)|
The Division of Adelaide is an Australian electoral division in South Australia. The 76 km² seat consists of the Adelaide city centre and spans from Grand Junction Road in the north to Cross Road in the south and from Portrush Road in the east to South Road in the west, taking in suburbs including Ashford, Clarence Park, Enfield, Goodwood, Kent Town, Keswick, Kilburn, Maylands, North Adelaide, Northgate, Norwood, Parkside, Prospect, Rose Park, St Peters, Toorak Gardens, Unley and Walkerville.
The division was one of the seven established when the former Division of South Australia was redistributed on 2 October 1903 and is named for the city of Adelaide, South Australia's capital. The seat was historically a fairly safe seat for the Australian Labor Party. However demographic change and boundary redistributions adding areas from the east and south of the city and removing areas from the north of the city saw the seat become marginal, and it was held by the Liberal Party from 1993 to 2004. Kate Ellis regained Adelaide for Labor in 2004 on a two percent two-party swing to a margin of 1.3 percent, increasing to 8.5 percent in 2007. The margin was reduced to 7.7 percent in 2010 and to 4.0 percent in 2013.
