Narungga Nation

Narungga people have always lived on Yorke Peninsula. Our country extends as far north as Port Broughton and east to the Hummock Ranges. Our neighbours were the Kaurna of the Adelaide Plains and the Nukunu to the north, with whom the Narungga would meet for trade and ceremony. The Narungga nation was made up of four clans, the Kurnara in the north of the peninsula, Windera in the east, Wari in the west and Dilpa in the south.

Narungga people have lived and travelled throughout the Point Pearce area long before the arrival of Europeans. To our mob it was known as Bookooyanna. Campsites can be found everywhere, especially along the coast, where stone tools, food remains and old fire places occur in abundance. Indeed throughout the entire Yorke Peninsula, the Point Pearce and Chinaman's Well area contains perhaps the richest record of presence.

The area has many attractions, reefs rich in shell fish, good fishing and hunting, a wealth of bush foods and perhaps, most importantly, reliable fresh water which could be obtained from a series of wells and springs along the coast. Located at the Willows, these soaks would later become the main water supply for Point Pearce Mission.
