Kaurna landmark at Kingston Park

This sculpture is erected at Kingston Park, a southern beach suburb of Adelaide. Unveiled in 1972 by SA's governor, it is a reminder of the Kaurna people, the traditional Aboriginal inhabitants of the area.

It represents Tjilbruke and his nephew who, under tribal law, was slain for killing an emu. Click on the image below to read the full inscription.
