Abstract: Ngangki-parri (KWP New Spelling Ngangkipari) means ‘women’s river’, and is normally expanded to Ngangki-parringga (New Spelling Ngangkiparingga), ‘place of the women’s river’ – i.e. the Locative ngga ‘at’ is optional. It is the Kaurna name for a part of the Onkaparinga River: probably the extreme northeastern part of the ‘horseshoe’ loop at Old Noarlunga, around the ford on Section 71 and the campsite a few yards upstream on Section 61. The name may also apply in Kaurna culture to the whole flood plain and estuary system of the lower Onkaparinga River.
