The seat of Black (named after the South Australian artist, Dorrit Black) covers a stretch of Adelaide’s coastal suburbs, extending from Seacliff in the north, to Hallett Cove in the south, moving inland to include the suburbs bounded to the north by Seacombe Road including Darlington, Seacombe Heights and Seaview Downs, and the southern suburbs of O’Halloran Hill, Trott Park and Sheidow Park. While suburban in nature, it is characterised by areas of precious open space including Glenthorne National Park and Hallett Cove and Marino conservation parks. The community is ideal for lovers of outdoor life with Seacliff’s sandy beach; Hallett Cove’s unique rock pools; the brilliant (and physically challenging!) coastal walking trail traversing the entire western edge of the electorate; one of the state’s best mountain bike parks at O’Halloran Hill; and the Lower Field River’s estuary providing a unique biodiversity hotspot at the electorate’s southern extremity.
When I was first elected to Parliament in 2014, I worked with the community to establish a number of priorities which I committed to advancing during my time in office. These priorities - community, small business, public transport, local environment, seniors and young people - are central to the work that I do and I strive to advance them in all of my work. They’re key to what I’m all about.
