Salisbury is a recognised national leader in a range of industries and takes in Technology Park, where companies deal in the many myriad forms of technology, such as computer systems, robotics and space technology. Salisbury is located 25 kilometres north of Adelaide.
The first people associated with the Salisbury area were the Aboriginal people known as the Kaurna. Recent research indicates that far from living a nomadic life style, groups were settled in campsites along the coast and inland plains of the Adelaide region. Many occupational and sacred sites still exist around the Salisbury area, including the Greenfields Wetlands. In 1839, three years after the founding of South Australia, a Scot named John Harvey migrated to South Australia. In 1847 he bought Section 2191 along the Little Para River and decided to develop a township there.
The township allotments went for sale the following year. John chose to name the township 'Salisbury' as his wife came from near Salisbury (on-the-plain) in England. His wife Ann (nee Pitman) was related to Sir Isaac Pitman of shorthand fame. Many of the streets in Salisbury are named after John and his family.
Most of the early settlers were English, Irish, Scottish and Welsh. There were also German settlers and some French.
Since World War Two Salisbury had grown and changed dramatically due to changes in transport, population growth, technology, immigration and its closest proximity to the city of Adelaide.
