Abstract: Tuttongga is the most likely original of a Kaurna name recorded in the Upper Inman. Its Kaurna location was most likely the area of high summits here above the steep northern scarps of the glacial valley. It was recorded in several spellings in the 1840s as a district name for the valley which is watered by the Boundy River on the east and by an unnamed neighbouring creek on the west. No doubt it was obtained originally by the early surveyors, and the Kaurna applied it to a site somewhere in or near this valley.
