South Australia - celebrating 175 years since establishment

Notwithstanding and acknowledging the much longer habitation and history of that part of Australia, South Australia this year celebrates the 175th years since the formal establishment of the State of South Australia.

As part of activities for the year a range of events are taking place and resources are being created. These include:

The Oral History Association of Australia - South Australia Branch's  SA175 Oral History Web Gateway providing access to a growing collection of oral histories of residents of the State.

The Professional Historian's Association (South Australia) Celebrating South Australia site - with content including "On this Day" in South Australian history; and collections of documents, articles and images.

Bound for Australia 1836 - a blog which follows the journeys of the first nine ships bound for South Australia
