Replacing the abolished seat of Baudin, Kaurna was created in the 1991 electoral distribution as a marginal Labor seat. It was first contested at the 1993 election, where it was won by Liberal candidate Lorraine Rosenberg as part of a large swing throughout the state. However, she was swept away at the 1997 election, with John Hill reclaiming the seat for Labor. For most of the time since then, it has been a fairly safe to safe Labor seat, as its predecessor Baudin had been for most of its existence.
