The Kaurna Aboriginal people frequented the area in the warmer months. They camped at the mouth of Chrisites Creek where they had access to fish and crustations. A burial ground was nearby.
In 1838 a huge area was surveyed between Glenelg and Christies Beach and made available for settlement. The area remained a farming community until 1923 when Rosa Christie created the first subdivision, named Christies Beach.
The nearby area north was further subdivided a couple of years later and named O’Sullivans Beach after Ignatius O’Sullivan, a settler from Ireland who arrived in 1840. In recent times the O'sullivan Beach suburb was developed to provide housing for workers at the nearby Lonsdale Industrial Park and Port Stanvac Oil Refinery. (Wikipedia)
