The land around Kangarilla was first settled in around 1840, with wheat and vineyards the main produce. A town was founded in 1849 by John Bottrill, and properly surveyed in 1860. The name was changed regularly in the early days; originally called Scaldwell, then Eyre Flat, the name "Kangarilla" (a word from the local Kaurna language meaning "place of two springs") was settled upon in 1862.
