Showcasing Meningie's Rich History


Did you know that 'meningie' is a Ngarrindjeri word meaning 'mud'?

There must have been a lot of mud around when the town in the beautiful Coorong District was first established in 1866.

Local historian Maryanne Cunneen joins Jennie Lenman this SA History Month to talk about an exhibition on from Friday 7 May onward at Coorong Cottage Industries.
