Eudunda – in the beginning

In the beginning…

Homo Sapiens have inhabited this region for 10,000 years and whilst no tract of large permanent camps, as found in other countries, there exists evidence of open air camps of brief duration.

One of these camps was at a spring on the Eastern side of the Mt. Lofty Ranges which form the Western Boundary of the Murray Flats. This camp was the resting place of the “NGADJURI” People, who were part of the “NGAIAWAND” Province which took on the greater part of the Murray Flats.

The “NGADJURI” People called the spring “JUDANDAKAWI” meaning Sheltered Water.

There was “once” a direct link to a web article at the SA Museum on the Ngadjuri Tribe but great to start back at Tindale Biography Web site – These “were” on the SA Museum web site, but since it has been redeveloped it is not. You will have to contact them directly to gain access.
