Abstract: “Moon-na” (Muna) was the Kaurna name for a site on or near the Little Para River, probably somewhere in the area from Salisbury to the Little Para Reservoir. It was obtained by William Williams, the Deputy Storekeeper and interpreter, probably in April 1839 during a police expedition to the Para districts in pursuit of Aboriginal men who had just killed two shepherds. Likely candidates for the site of Muna therefore include the places where this expedition crossed or camped on the Little Para, which include certainly the squatting run owned that year by Fisher and Handcock at the junction of the river with Gould Creek.
