One Tree Hill Area

Location

One Tree Hill is a northern suburb of Adelaide, in the state of South Australia, Australia. One Tree Hill is located approximately 28 kilometres from the Adelaide CBD and is located in the City of Playford.

 One Tree Hill is a predominantly rural area which includes the small township of One Tree Hill. One Tree Hill includes the suburbs of Bibaringa, Evanston Park (part), Gould Creek (part), Humbug Scrub (part), One Tree Hill, Sampson Flat, Uleybury and Yattalunga.

History

Settlement of the area dates from the 1850s when townships were established in One Tree Hill and Uleybury. While much of the area was traditionally devoted to agriculture and viticulture, hobby farms and horse studs are now more characteristic of the area. The most significant development occurred from the post-war years.

 The suburb takes its name from the 'One Tree Hill Inn' (licensed in 1851), for many years the meeting place of the District Council of Munno Para. The inn's name, in turn, referred to a giant red gum tree which stood nearby. The tree burnt down in 1890 and was cut down in 1934.
