TRADITIONAL LAND OWNERS
We acknowledge the Kaurna Nation and its people as the Traditional Owners and custodians of the land and waters in the area now known as the City of Onkaparinga.
We understand the Port Noarlunga area to be of high cultural value to Kaurna and other Aboriginal people. From the coastal dunes to the Onkaparinga River and its estuary, the area is rich with Kaurna cultural history, story, meaning and connection. The word Onkaparinga is derived from Nangkiparringga meaningwomen’s river place. The Port Noarlunga area is also strongly tied to the Tjilbruke dreaming story. One of the four Tjilbruke Dreaming Track cairns in the
Onkaparinga region is now located in Tutu Wirra Reserve, on Witton Bluff, commemorating the nearby spring site created by Tjilbruke on his journey down
OLD JETTY – NEW JETTY
The first jetty at Port Noarlunga was constructed for coastal trade. Work on this jetty commenced in 1854 and on its completion the following year was known as Port Onkaparinga. Local produce including barrels of wine and wheat were bought down by barge from Old Noarlunga to Port Noarlunga before being loaded onto ketch sailing ships, the transport of the day.
Jettyfest is a 3 Day Festival celebrating the role Port Noarlunga Jetty has played in all our lives. South Australians, visitors from Interstate and Overseas have engaged in a variety of activities or interests on, under , above or around Port Noarlunga Jetty and surrounding area creating their own fond memories of Port Noarlunga and surrounds. Come along to JETTYFEST100 in 10-12 December 2021 to hear stories, document your own, create new ones. Immerse yourself in the wonderful abundance of natural environment, pause for a moment to consider the fast paced progressive changes that have happened over 100 years and reflect on how we may embrace a future where a visit to Port Noarlunga Jetty ends in even more great memories. It already looks promising. Friends of Gulf St Vincent are measuring water quality control through their Secchi program and Port Noarlunga has a great report.
