Abstract: Mandarilla (or Mantharrilla in our New Spelling) is the Kaurna name for a surface water site somewhere on Christie Creek or one of its tributaries: probably in Morphett Vale East near Parnangga. It was recorded as ‘Maundarilla’ by Louis Piesse sometime before 1844, probably in 1839 when Piesse was a survey assistant in the first Country Surveys. Its meaning is uncertain, but probably ‘place of the handle or girdle string’.
