The name Kareildung has been mistakenly ascribed to Hallett Cove as an Indigenous name. The Kaurna name of Murrkangga was derived from the meaning of Kareildung and applied specifically to the Amphitheatre in the Hallett Cove Conservation Park.
Sites within the conservation park are of great geological and archaeological significance, as well as containing sites of great cultural significance to the Kaurna people, including a significant site on the Tjilbruke Dreaming Track. The park features Aboriginal artefacts used by the Kaurna people about 2,000 and the Kartan people up to 40,000 years ago. Geological features include glacial striations on the clifftop which form part of the evidence for the Permian glaciation of southern Australia, then part of Gondwana.
Hallett Cove itself is a small rocky beach, named after John Hallett, who came across it in 1837 whilst searching for missing stock. The Field River runs out to sea at the southern end. The cliffs to the north are part of the conservation park.
The Hallett Cove Shopping Centre is the suburb's largest shopping centre, and includes underground parking, a food court, a Big W department store, and Woolworths and Foodland supermarkets.
