Seaford is a metropolitan suburb of Adelaide, South Australia. It lies within the City of Onkaparinga. Seaford railway station is the southern terminus of the Seaford railway line from Adelaide railway station.
Seaford, a coastal suburb to the near south of Port Noarlunga, was set out on Sections 334 and 340, Hundred of Noarlunga, in 1954 by the Wakefield Land Company Pty Ltd. To the west of the horseshoe in the Onkaparinga River at Noarlunga, the land was first settled in the farming boom of the 1840s and 1850s.
Seaford was also the site, in the nineteenth century, of the Southern Race Course. The pursuit of horse racing and other sports, like hunting and ploughing matches, was an important part of the local social life.
During the mid-twentieth century, numerous land developments resulted from the movement of suburban population to the south of Adelaide and the rise of tourism along the beaches.
Seaford Post Office opened on 9 June 1992 replacing the nearby Moana office.
