South Australia has an area of 1,043,514 sq km and a population of around 1.5 million people. Its capital is Adelaide.

Naracoorte 7
8 years ago we visited Naracoorte seeking information on our ancestor george ormerod who was the first settler in naacoorte. We were given lots of help from the caravan park receptionist including how to find his original home [now a B&B.]..we went to visit the owner and were shown over his two homes[ one of which he turned into the first bakery in naracoorte In jan 2013 his great grandson went to the tourist info centre in Naracoorte seeking similar information ...nobody knew anything about george ormerod..wouldn,t you think that someone would have some inkling about the man who founded their town? beth hill nee ormerod
