Abstract: ‘R. Ouiwachilly’ was recorded with this spelling by surveyor G Bryant in 1839 during the first surveys of Fleurieu Peninsula. It is an Aboriginal name for the main course of Nowhere Else Creek around 2½ km above its junction with Yattagolinga Creek near Rapid Bay, below the reach which he marked ‘Ichicouinga’ (see PNS 5.4.1/12 ?Ityi-kauwingga). It is not known whether ‘Ouiwachilly’ was originally a place-name, nor which language it is in (probably either Kaurna or Ngarrindjeri). Its meaning is unknown.
