Abstract: Tatatyilla is the Kaurna name for a site centred around a “well” or waterhole in Willunga Creek at Aldinga town, north of the Aldinga Arts Eco Village. It was recorded as “Tar-ta-chil-la” and “Tartarchilla” by survey labourer Louis Piesse during the first surveys of the area in 1839, and he must have obtained it from some of the Aboriginal men who were employed in the Aldinga surveys that year. He located it at “Section 399, District C” (now Hundred of Willunga).
