List of places in South Australia by population

This is a list of places in South Australia by urban centre population.


25 largest urban centres or localities by population



Urban centres are defined by the Australian Bureau of Statistics as being a population cluster of 1,000 or more people. For statistical purposes, people living in urban centres are classified as urban. These figures represent the populations of the contiguous built-up areas of each city.

Suburbs of Adelaide are not included, with the exception of Gawler, Mount Barker, Crafers-Bridgewater and Nairne, which can all be seen as semi-rural suburbs but also as separate towns.
