The suburb of Gilles Plains is located 11 km north east of the Adelaide GPO.

Gilles Plains is named after the first Colonial Treasurer, Osmond Gilles, a position he held for two years, after which he retired into private life. Osmond Gilles (1788-1866) was born on 24th August 1788 in London. He owned a sheep station adjoining the River Torrens. Early in 1838, this station was the furthest station in the colony from Adelaide.

He invested a large amount of capital in the colony and introduced Saxony and Merino sheep into South Australia.

He died at his home, Woodley, Glen Osmond on 25th September 1866
