Dunstan

Dunstan, formerly known as Norwood, is an electoral district of the House of Assembly in South Australia.

Steven Marshall has been the elected member since 2010 and has lived all his adult life in the area.

In fact, he is one of almost 25,000 electors who call Dunstan ‘home’.

Dunstan covers more than 14km2 across Adelaide’s inner eastern suburbs.

In 2012 the electorate was named after former Premier Don Dunstan who represented Norwood from 1953 to 1979.

Out and About

It’s a great honour and privilege to have represented the people of Dunstan, formerly known as Norwood, since 2010. I’ve lived my entire adult life in this electorate which is full of culturally diversity and community spirit.

Every week I’m out and about meeting with residents and community groups and listening to what they have to say. Here’s what I’ve recently been up to:

March Out and About

I was fortunate enough to attend Prophet Elias'  celebration for Sunday of Orthodoxy where they also opened the 33rd Christian Book & Icon Exhibition. Included in this exhibition was a great range of books that were suitable for a range of ages and definitely were a popular item on the day. Thank you to Father Stavros and his team for putting on a great event.

 

February Out and About

There were many celebrations in Dunstan throughout February, including the Norwood Greek Festival, the 60th birthday of the Kensington and Norwood Pool Party, the Lithuanian Independence Celebration and the 2017 Year of the Rooster Lunar New Year. I love being able to get behind a BBQ and chat to the locals, and seeing many friendly faces.

 

January Out and About

With 2017 already in full swing, it's hard to believe January has been and gone already!

 

December Out and About

With the 2016 Parliamentary Year over, I would like to thank everyone for their ongoing support. It has been a pleasure to assist hundreds of constituents on a wide variety of matters.

 

November Out and About

It was a pleasure to attend the City of Norwood, Payneham & St Peters Citizenship Ceremony where I welcomed new citizens into our community.

 

October Out and About

The Norwood Football Club recently held their 2016 Club Champion and Club Awards night. Congratulations to all those that were nominated and to those that won their category. I am looking forward to the 2017 season.

 

September Out and About

September rains have hit us hard. A number of my constituents have contacted me regarding flooding. I hope everyone stayed safe and dry, and your properties weren't damaged. I have called on the Government for an immediate independent inquiry into this State-wide blackout.

 

August Out and About

It was another cold morning this year for Walk a Mile in my Boots, raising much needed funds for the homeless in South Australia. To date, a huge $96,000 has been raised, all thanks to the 3,000 people that attended the walk. It was great to see so many people wake up early and get involved in this cause that affects so many people here in South Australia.

 

July Out and About

With the Federal Election well and truly over, I'd like to congratulate the Turnbull Government on their re-election. I look forward to working with the Federal Liberal team over the next three years as they deliver on their promises for South Australia.

 

June Out and About

I was delighted to attend a fundraising Family Breakfast at Mary MacKillop College earlier this month with the Member for Sturt, Christopher Pyne. This was a great morning that allowed for all the students and families to come together over a warm cup of tea and delicious breakfast to support Kick Start For Kids. Thank you Mary MacKillop College for a great morning, and congratulations to Kick Start For Kids for all the great work you do.
