Abstract: Marndudla (or Marntudla in KWP’s New Spelling 2010) is the Kaurna name for a site in the vicinity of section 622, Hundred of Willunga (around Christie Creek on the west side of the Southern Expressway). By 1840 it had been recorded as ‘Mandoodla’, probably by the first surveyors. Its meaning (if any) is unknown; though it might possibly be connected in some way with marntu (‘uninitiated youth who is of age for initiation’). If so, we do not know what this may have signified about the location.
