Suburb Overview

Para Hills is a residential suburb of Adelaide, South Australia, accessible from Adelaide by bus,. A train station is approximately 2 kilometres to the west. There is a light aircraft airport close to its boundary, and numerous sporting facilities, abundant parks and schools and two medium sized shopping centres. Most of the suburb is in the City of Salisbury while some is in the City of Tea Tree Gully.

The prefix "Para" is derived from the Kaurna word "Pari" meaning a stream of flowing water, which could refer to either the Little Para River or Dry Creek. Para is used to name many places in the area including Parafield Airport, three seasonal creeks, and some suburbs. The flat land between Dry Creek and the Little Para River is sometimes called the Para Plains and the facing hills the Para Hills.

An early settler family were the Goodalls, who established a farm at the base of the hills in 1850. When Andrew Melville Goodall expanded the farm in 1853 he named the property Para Hills Farm, building a farmhouse near what is now the corner of St Clair Avenue and Goodall Road.

Para Hills is built on an escarpment of the Para Fault Block at the edge of the Adelaide plains, rising 61 metres above the plains. The formation of this escarpment has led to short, steep-sided gullies which are characteristic of Para Hills. The gullies are usually dry, running only shortly after rain, and have mostly been left as public parks. Outcrops of exposed pre-Cambrian rocks have been quarried for use in roadmaking and construction since the late 19th century. The outcrops within Para Hills are not extensive and only one quarry operated in the suburb's residential area.

Prior to subdivision there is very little recorded about the vegetation of the hills. What records exist report that the plains where mostly covered in kangaroo grass, with the hills being lightly covered in Eucalyptus Porosa, Acacia paradoxa and Acacia pyncantha. Public parks in para hills are now landscaped with Australian native vegetation. Most of the streets show Salisbury council

The boundary of Para Hills is defined by McIntyre Road and the Para Hills reserve to the north, Kelly Road to the east, Bridge Road to the west, and Maxwell Road and Milne Road to the south. The northern boundary moved south from Wynn Vale Drive in 2002 when Gulfview Heights was declared.

At the ABS 2001 census, Para Hills had a population of 9,050 people living in 3,505 dwellings, but this has been reduced with the movement of the suburb's boundary.

The area was originally inhabited by the Kaurna tribe of Indigenous Australians. By the time the area was settled by Europeans in the 1840s, introduced diseases such as smallpox had already spread from the eastern states and decimated the population.

Land grants in the Para Hills area began in 1847. Notable farming families first settling the area were the Goodalls, the Kesters, and the MacIntyres. From settlement as distant farming land, to subdivision for residential development, the land increased greatly in value. The land was valued at

Farming and quarrying continued, as the sole activities on the land, until Reid Murray Developments began acquiring land for subdivision in 1959. The development was, at the time, the largest private housing development in Australia and had a budget of
