The Hundred of Everard is the cadastral unit of hundred on the northern Adelaide Plains containing the Everard Central locality. It is one of the 16 hundreds of the County of Stanley. It was named in 1867 by Governor Dominick Daly after William Everard (1819–1889), a South Australian parliamentarian. The southern third of the locality of Condowie is also situated inside the bounds of the Hundred of Everard.
Everard Central contains a series of ephemeral salt lake basins. The lunette formations at the basin edges contain deposits of gypsum. Gypsum for agricultural use is mined at the site, with 35,000 t (34,000 long tons; 39,000 short tons) being obtained by G.J. Mills and McArdle in 2002.
