Suburb Overview

Marino is a suburb in the south of Adelaide, South Australia. It sits on coastal hills overlooking Gulf St Vincent, within the City of Marion Local Government Area. It neighbours Seacliff, Hallett Cove and Kingston Park.

The suburb features the Marino Rocks beach which has a steep cliff face and then a low and flat rocky beach, leading out to a reef on the southern end of Seacliff. Fishing and snorkelling are common recreation activities.

At the northern end of the beach, the public artwork Contemplation can be viewed, by artist Marijana Tadic. Launched in 2006, the artwork takes the form of a rocked boat.

Also as of 2006, at the access point to the beach, there is mosaic artwork on the outer walls of the toilet facility. These were designed and constructed by South Australian artist Michael Tye. Michael worked with local artists and community members in the design and construction of the mosaic artwork along the nearby retaining wall.

The Noarlunga Railway Line passes through the suburb, and there are two railway stations: Marino and Marino Rocks. The line has had an active history, first being built In 1913 to Marino and extending to Willunga in 1915. The section from Hallett Cove to Willunga was closed in 1969. In the 1970s the line was extended south from Hallett Cove, reaching Christie Downs in 1976 and Noarlunga Centre in 1978.

A number of walking trails are available through Marino including the Coastal Walk and the Coast to Vines rail trail. A signposted suburban bikeway from Glenelg to Marino travels along secondary roads in the area.

Marino is home to the Marino Rocks Lighthouse and the Marino Conservation Park.

A team, under the leadership of J.W. McLaren, completed the survey of the coastal strip of Brighton in December 1838. Land grants for sections 206 and 234 - 246 were allotted in March and April 1839. Section 244 was known as Marino, and granted to George S. Kingston. This is now mostly Kingston Park. Sections 245 and 246 were originally known as the New Brighton Country Lands and were granted to Matthew Smith.

Smith divided the New Brighton Country Lands into 40 blocks of 4 acres each. It was considered poor pastoral land, due to the exposed salt air and strong winds. By August 1842 Smith had sold only 15 blocks, mainly to notable business people who had little intention of living in the New Brighton Country Lands, but bought properties as a speculative proposition for future sales to fishing families or workers in the nearby quarry. Henry Hickling purchased 6 blocks. In 1884 John Roberts bought some of the remaining unsold blocks and 20 or so years later sold this land to George S. Kingston.

Local government in the area was formed in 1853, the 18th District Council constituted in South Australia. Its name was the District Council of Brighton. The first chairman of this new district was Thomas O'Halloran. The first meetings were held in the Thatched House Tavern, which, if still standing, would be on the corner of Brighton and Sturt roads. According to the 1876 Census, the District Council of Brighton totalled 328 schoolchildren of which 192 were able to read and write. In 1886 the council, less the now small coastal Corporation of Brighton, was renamed the District Council of Marion.

In 1875 a proposal was put forward to build an outer harbour at Marino. The proposal was furthered in 1880 in a report by Captain H.S. Stanley, R.N. In 1901 a Marino Outer Harbour League was formed. However the construction of the Outer Harbour near Port Adelaide, in 1908, finally laid these plans to rest.
