Abstract: Willangga (Wilangga in KWP’s New Spelling 2010) is the Kaurna name of a campsite area on Sections 258 and 248 where today’s Wirra Creek and another small watercourse emerge from the hills at Willunga town, probably centring around the best waterholes on Wirra Creek in the 700 metres upstream from St Peters Tce. The name was first recorded in 1837 by Interim Protector Wyatt, who identified “Willa willunga” as part of “Rodney’s country, Onkaparinga to Willunga” (referring to Ivarityi’s father, Ityamaiitpinna).
