Abstract: Watara-parringga is probably the correct spelling of the original Kaurna name of a place in southern Fleurieu Peninsula. It was near Mt Hayfield, on or near Waterfall Creek, probably on the Hay Flat plains. The name was recorded in several adapted Ngarrindjeri forms from Tindale’s Ngarrindjeri informants Milerum and Karlowan in the 1930s. There is no known firm evidence of it in any language from early settlement times; but information obtained from Milerum shows that a form of it was known to Southern Kaurna people in the 1880s.
