Abstract: Kadlatiangga (New Spelling Kadlatiyangga) was the ‘Kaurna’-Miyurna name adopted in 1849-50 for John Heathcote’s station in Wattle Flat, in the Anglicized spelling ‘Cudlatiyunga’. It had probably been obtained by the first surveyors in 1840 from ‘Kaurna’-Miyurna guides, who would have applied it to an unknown site on the station or nearby. Although Heathcote received no official land grants until 1851 and we do not yet know exactly where his station was in the 1840s, it may have been on Section 417, Hundred of Myponga,1 immediately north of the Bowyer Bridge crossing at Carrickalinga Creek. The name means ‘gap-tooth place’; but we do not know what this referred to: possibly a nearby feature of the landscape, or an unrecorded Dreaming story, or both.
