Abstract: Five kilometres south-southeast of Aldinga, in the bare grassy paddocks behind what is now the holiday suburb of Silver Sands, there was once a wetland of wonder. The original form of the Kaurna name for a place near Silver Sands, in the immediate vicinity of the extinct Blue Lagoon and Washpool, was either Wakondilla or perhaps Wangkondilla (we cannot be sure which). Probably it referred to the cluster of campsites and old springs (some now extinct) on Sections 607, 615 and the southwest of 742; and near the skin-curing workshop area somewhere near the boundary of 614 and 615.
