dc.description.abstractYarnkalyilla (or perhaps Yangkalyilla) is the Kaurna name of a site at or near Section 1001 at the mouth of the Yankalilla River Gorge (at Lady Bay where Colonel Light’s survey team camped in 1836). It can also refer by extension to the entire Yankalilla Plains. Its meaning is probably ‘the place where [something] keeps on hanging down’ (or ‘imparting or infecting’). This might perhaps refer to the dangerously overhanging rock strata on the seaward side of Yankalilla Hill (on Main South Road from Lady Bay to the Little Gorge on Sections 1080, 1081, 81 and 80).en
