The electorate of Kingston covers 165 square kilometres of the southern suburbs of Adelaide, stretching from Flagstaff Hill in the north, to Maslin Beach in the south.
The electorate is named after Charles Kingston, a former Premier of South Australia. Kingston was a father of federation and his government introduced a wide range of reforms, including laws which made South Australia the first place in the British Empire where women could become Members of Parliament.
Kingston is a large and diverse area which includes some of the best places in the world to live and work. The South is defined by its beautiful beaches which make up the western boundary of the electorate, and the rolling hills to the east and the south. Kingston is experiencing rapid growth and development of new suburbs with many families choosing Southern Adelaide to raise their children, as well as retirees making a sea change.
Amanda Rishworth MP was elected as the Member for Kingston for a fifth term in 2019.
