Adelaide region

Adelaide waterhole

The Adelaide region is the most populated and includes the state capital as well as Port Augusta, the Adelaide Hills and the Barossa Valley. The communities of Davenport and Point Pearce are located in this region.

The artwork representing this region depicts Emu and Kangaroo visiting a centuries old waterhole on Kaurna Country. Large strands of stringy bark trees form the eastern border of Kaurna Country, while tufts of kangaroo grass grow westerly across the plains.

The Ibis is a significant cultural icon of the Kaurna people that can be found around wet areas. Cultural icons from neighbouring groups radiate out from the flames of the seasonal fires that burn brightly on Kaurna Country to regenerate the landscape.
