About Dunstan

Located directly east of the Adelaide city parklands, the district contains some of the older residential suburbs of Adelaide and popular shopping and dining precincts of Magill Road and The Parade, Norwood.

The district, previously named Norwood, was created at the 2012 boundary redistribution and first contested and represented in 2014.

Dunstan takes its name after Donald (Don) Dunstan AC QC (1926-1999) who was the Member for Norwood from 1953 until 1979 and Premier of South Australia between June 1967 and April 1968 and then from June 1970 to February 1979. Dunstan implemented substantial social reforms including introducing anti-discrimination legislation, pioneering Aboriginal Land Rights, decriminalising homosexuality, enacting consumer protection laws and electoral reforms including lowering the voting age to eighteen years.
