Excerpt from Publication 101
Before the Buffalo
"The settlers of 1836, however, were by no means the first whites to set foot on South Australian soil. The first three decades of the nineteenth century witnessed considerable activity both by sea and land in that area. In 1800, Lieutenant James Grant, on an “experimental” voyage in “LADY NELSON”, a vessel of 60 tons fitted with “Sliding Keels”, sighted and named Mounts Gambier and Schank, and Capes Banks and Northumberland. Grant made no landing in the area."
Membership is open to any person with an ancestor who arrived in South Australia
