Welcome to Koonibba

Visit one of South Australia’s oldest mission-founded Aboriginal communities, with a history of more than 120 years. Indigenous people of Wirangu, Kookatha and Mirning descent have continued to live and practice culture on this land throughout this time, maintaining traditions through significant adversity. With strong and close kinship, flourishing sporting teams and vibrant arts and music contributions, the community is now proudly and completely self-managed.
