Found this interesting, very detailed article about the History and goings on of the Parafield Poultry station, South Australia established in 1911

Great stuff. Love the old pics but the more recent ones of the fowls (mostly show fowls) look out of place.

I have it that some of the street names associated with the re-development of Parafield are in keeping with the history of the place - Australorp Ave, etc.

SA locals may be able to confirm this.

You might have it confused with Seven Hills in NSW. Redevelopment around the old Poultry Research Station here has retained street names such as Australorp, Sussex, etc
