Cultural Heritage

For more than 60,000 years, the land on which Lot Fourteen now sits was of major importance to the Kaurna people of the Adelaide Plains.

Between the banks of Karrawirra Parri (River of the Reg Gum forest; River Torrens) and the waterholes of Kainka wirra (Eucalypt forest, Adelaide Botanic Garden), the Country within and around Lot Fourteen has been a place for camping and ceremony. 

This is a place that the Kaurna people have a strong cultural and emotional connection to as it is the Site of Evaritchi next to her Watering Spring.

For many years after the arrival of the British settlers, the areas around Lot Fourteen continued to provide refuge for the Kaurna and was a place to continue to practice culture.
