Elladoone is a suburb of Johannesburg, South Africa. It is located in Region F of the City of Johannesburg Metropolitan Municipality.

History[edit]

Prior to the discovery of gold on the Witwatersrand in 1886, the suburb lay on land on one of the original farms called Klipriviersberg.[1] It is named after the developer Arny Hohne's wife, Ella Hohne and became a suburb in 1955.[1]
