|City of Noarlunga|
|Established||21 August 1856|
|Council seat||Old Noarlunga|
The District Council of Noarlunga was established on 21 August 1856 following lobbying by residents at Noarlunga on either side of the Onkaparinga River. The council area was formed from part of the District Council of Willunga on the south bank and part of the District Council of Morphett Vale on the north bank.
The remainder of Morphett Vale council was annexed by Noarlunga 75 years later on 12 May 1932 along with part of the District Council of Clarendon. This was as part of the statewide push in the early 1930s to consolidate local government into fewer governing bodies as promulgated in the Local Government Areas (Re-arrangement) Acts 1929 and 1931.
On 6 March 1997 the Noarlunga council was amalgamated with the City of Happy Valley and District Council of Willunga to form the City of Happy Valley, Noarlunga and Willunga which was renamed as the City of Onkaparinga on 22 December 1997.
I [...] have determined to separate from the District of Morphett Vale [...] and also to separate from the District of Willunga [...] and, to constitute such severed portions into a new district to be called the District of Noarlunga.
