Blackwood is a south eastern suburb located in the foothills of Adelaide, South Australia.

The first use of the name "Blackwood" appears to have been before 1880, in relation to the "Blackwood Inn", a small hotel located where the Belair Hotel now stands, and was probably derived from the Australian Blackwood tree which grows in the area. (Source: Wiki)
