Kooringa, South Australia



 



Tree: Penarth Ryans
Notes: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burra,_South_Australia#Kooringa

Kooringa was the first company township in Australia [40] and, until the closure of the mine, was maintained as a strictly company-run town. The township's name is derived from the Aboriginal word kuri-ngga meaning either in the circle or locality of the sheoak.[6] During the life of the Burra Burra Mine, the township was widely reported as shabby, rundown and poorly maintained with the inhabitants having little incentive to maintain their rented properties. Kooringa is still the main section of the town and is known as Burra South.
