Abstract: Karrawatungga was a ‘Kaurna’-Miyurna name recorded in the 1840s with a variety of spellings by four settlers (John Clarke, the Boord brothers, George Foreman and John Heathcote senior). They all used it to refer to the locality which they were occupying between Myponga valley and the Yankalilla plain, i.e. the northern half of the valley now known as Wattle Flat, covering the vicinity of Sections 410 northeast to 495, Hundred of Myponga. 1 The exact location of the original Kaurna site is unknown.
