Artist's Description

South Australian coastline from Granite Island.

Granite Island known by Ramindjeri as Nulcoowarra is a small island next to Victor Harbor, South Australia, not far from South Australia’s capital city, Adelaide. It is unpopulated, however there are buildings and shelters on the island, including a cafe. It is a popular tourist attraction, particularly for people wishing to see Little Penguins (commonly called “Fairy Penguins”) which breed and live on the island.

The island is accessible across a causeway from the mainland, either on foot or by catching an antique horse-drawn tram.

Granite Island’s Little Penguin colony has declined dramatically since the 1990s. A count conducted in October 2013 totalled 38 penguins. In 2001, the population count was 1,548 penguins.
