Named after the Kaurna aboriginal tribe which originally inhabited the Adelaide plains, it is a 52.7 km² semi-urban electorate on Adelaide's far-southern beaches, taking in the suburbs of Aldinga Beach, Maslin Beach, Moana, Port Noarlunga, Port Noarlunga South, Port Willunga, Seaford, Seaford Meadows and Seaford Rise as well as parts of Aldinga and Christies Beach.
Replacing the abolished seat of Baudin, Kaurna was created in the 1991 electoral distribution as a marginal Labor seat, replacing the abolished seat of Baudin. It was first contested at the 1993 election, where it was won by Liberal candidate Lorraine Rosenberg as part of a large swing throughout the state. However, she was swept away at the 1997 election, with John Hill reclaiming the seat for Labor. He resigned from parliament at the 2014 election, replaced by Labor's Chris Picton.
