The Division of Adelaide is an Australian Electoral Division in South Australia. The division was created in 1903 and is named for the city of Adelaide, South Australia's capital. The seat has always been based in the inner suburbs of Adelaide. The seat currently consists of the Adelaide City Centre and the suburbs of Ashford, Clarence Park, Enfield, Goodwood, Kent Town, Keswick, Kilburn, Maylands, North Adelaide, Northgate, Norwood, Parkside, Prospect, Rose Park, St Peters, Toorak Gardens, Unley and Walkerville.

The seat was historically a fairly safe seat for the Australian Labor Party, however demographic change and boundary redistributions saw the seat become marginal, and was held by the Liberal Party for eleven years from 1993 to 2004.
