Named after town in Devonshire[edit]

Modbury was named by R.S Kelly on 1 September 1840 after a town in Devonshire. Reference cited--South Australia What's in a name? Historically significant place names by Rodney Cockburn ISBN 978 0 959 251 913 2007 Reprint. Published by Axiom Publishing Page 149. I can't Format it correctly because I don't know how to do Formatting. Kathleen.wright5 13:00, 17 October 2007 (UTC).

Shopping Presinct Image not best depiction of Modbury[edit]

The shopping centre in the image is "Clovercrest Plaza". The shops in question are on the very outskirts of Modbury, and is hardly Modbury at all except for address as that area is generally referred to as "Clovercrest" and everything in that area takes Clovercrest's name for clarification - e.g Clovercrest Family Practice, Autopro Clovercrest, Clovercrest Hotel.

I do not have the means to do so but it would be best instead to have an image from around Tea Tree Plaza, Tea Tree Plus, Civic Park, or Modbury Triangle. (talk) 03:24, 7 March 2015 (UTC)
