History of South Australia

The coastline of South Australia was first mapped by Matthew Flinders and Nicolas Baudin in 1802, excepting the inlet later named the Port Adelaide River which was first discovered in 1831 by Captain Collet Barker and later accurately charted in 1836-37 by Colonel William Light, Leader of the South Australian Colonization Commissioners' 'First Expedition' and first Surveyor-General of South Australia.
On 15 August 1834, the British Parliament passed the South Australia Act 1834 (Foundation Act), which empowered His Majesty to erect and establish a province or provinces in southern Australia. The act stated that 802,511 square kilometres would be allotted to the colony and it would be convict-free.

The commencement of colonial government was proclaimed on 28 December 1836, now known as Proclamation Day.

South Australia was the second Australian state to be settled by free colonists, the first being the free Swan River colony in Western Australia, however in 1849 Western Australia was formally constituted as a penal colony. Although South Australia was constituted such that convicts could never be transported to the Province, some emancipated or escaped convicts or expirees made their own way there, both prior to 1836, or later, and may have constituted 1-2% of the early population

The current flag of South Australia was adopted on 13 January 1904, and is a British blue ensign defaced with the state badge. The badge is described as a piping shrike with wings outstretched on a yellow disc. The state badge is believed to have been designed by Robert Craig of Adelaide's School of Design.

The terrain consists largely of arid and semi-arid rangelands, with several low mountain ranges. The most important (but not tallest) is the Mount Lofty-Flinders Ranges system, which extends north about 800 kilometres (500 mi) from Cape Jervis to the northern end of Lake Torrens. The highest point in the state is not in those ranges; Mount Woodroffe, 1,435 metres is in the Musgrave Ranges in the extreme northwest of the state. The south-western portion of the state consists of the sparsely inhabited Nullarbor Plain, fronted by the cliffs of the Great Australian Bight. Features of the coast include Spencer Gulf and the Eyre and Yorke Peninsulas that surround it.

The southern part of the state has a Mediterranean climate, while the rest of the state has either an arid or semi-arid climate.

At the 2016 census the population of South Australia was 1.7 million residents.

House Styles in South Australia

In 1836, when British colonists first pitched tents at Holdfast Bay, they encountered an ancient housing tradition well adapted to the environment. The whole of South Australia was occupied by Aborigines whose housing varied according to climate and custom. In the wetter coastal districts of Adelaide and the South East housing reflected the local people’s semi-sedentary lives as they moved seasonally between the coast and inland hills. In the South East thatched shelters gave ample protection during summers on the coast but during the cold winters people moved behind the dunes into solid mud or timber structures covered with brush and skins. In the arid interior housing was simpler. On his northern expedition in the 1840s Charles Sturt described a camp of 400 people with well-constructed beehive-shaped shelters made of grass.

From the 1840s South Australian governments funded, built and managed housing for destitute women and aged men, the sick poor, children, prisoners and state employees, including many hundreds of railway workers housed in cottages the length and breadth of the state.

Settler’s Cottages were built by Adelaide’s earliest settlers. The cottages were constructed of local materials such as bark, logs, shingles, clay reinforced with straw, stone, brick or ‘wattle and daub’. The Colonial Cottage was a more substantial construction than the Settler’s Cottage. They were built out of local stone or brick and usually had brick quoins. The Symmetrical Cottage was generally a four roomed dwelling that was symmetrical in design and appearance. The Bay Window Villa added a rounded projection to the plain double front. The Villa has a step in the double front and an extended gable or hipped roof over the step. The Queen Anne has style is often mis-named as art Nouveau in Adelaide. The style incorporated a ‘Louvre roof’, which allowed greater flexibility in altering the roof shape.

Houses of the Queen Anne style often incorporated gables adorned with exposed ‘trusses’, circular bays with conical roofs, turret top entrances and rectangular bay windows. Verandahs were decorated with timber turned posts and wooden trellis, instead of iron posts and frieze work. Many of the Queen Anne homes incorporated stylistic decorative Art Nouveau features. Row Cottages were built to house the less affluent of the time. They are sometimes referred to as ‘Attached Row Houses’ or attached houses.

The first Home Unit was built in 1958. Colonial Style Units were built during the 1960s and 1970s. The first Townhouse was built in 1970-71.
