|Abstract:||Piltangga (or Pirltangga in KWP’s New Spelling 2010) is the Kaurna name of the area at Willunga South on Sections 700 and 268 which was known as ‘Beltunga’ and ‘Beltunga Gully’ in the 19th century. The name means ‘brushtail possum place’. Probably this signifies that the thick forest here was a particularly good place to obtain this species whose skins were used for cloaks; the prime skincuring site was only 10 kilometres away at Wakondilla near Silver Sands. Or perhaps a site here had some connection with an unrecorded Brushtail Dreaming.|
