Abstract: As the name of a railway stopping place on the former Willunga line, ‘Korra’ was approved by the Nomenclature Committee on 10th January 1946; but in the process thereafter it was mistranscribed as ‘Korro’ by either the Railways Department or the office of the Director of Lands. ‘Korra’ was almost certainly taken from Curr’s Australian Race (1886), in which Provis gave a wordlist in the language of the Aboriginal people of Streaky Bay on the West Coast of SA.
