Suburb Overview

Walkerville is a suburb of Adelaide, South Australia. It lies just north east of the city centre, about 4 kilometres from the Adelaide GPO.

Walkerville was named after Captain John Walker R. N. who took up land in the district in 1838, two years after the first colonists arrived in South Australia.The area was attractive to early settlers and within a few years, the settlement had become a village. During the 1840s, Walker fell victim to over-speculation in land value and a state-wide financial depression. He was imprisoned briefly for debt and in 1849 he left the colony to take up a government position in Hobart. His connection with the state, although brief, is remembered in the naming of the suburb. Walkerville Post Office opened on 1 January 1896 and Walkerville District Council was established in 1855 after a petition by local residents proclaimed a desire to break away from the larger Yatala District Council. Initially, only the suburbs of Walkerville and Gilberton seceded from Yatala but within a few months, Medindie and Walkerville North were included also. The district boundaries remained unchanged until 1970 when Vale Park was added.

Early council meetings were held in a room at the local pub, the Sussex Arms, until 1893 when the foundation stone for the present Town Hall was laid on Walkerville Terrace. In 1908, the Institute Library was founded in a small room opposite the municipal offices. In 1963, it became incorporated as a Public Library and in 1970 it moved into dedicated quarters next door where the old Walkerville Police Station had been.

There are two primary schools in Walkerville: St Andrew's School was founded in 1850 and Walkerville Primary School was founded in 1884.

Today, the Town of Walkerville is Walkerville's local government area, named after Walkerville itself. Being an inner north eastern suburb, Walkerville lies in the state electoral district of Adelaide as well as the federal electoral division of Adelaide.

The current mayor of Walkerville is Heather Wright, elected in 2010.

The residents of the Corporation of the Town of Walkerville are represented by a mayor and eight councillors.
