In November 1836, Colonel William Light found a safe anchorage on the eastern side of St Vincent's Gulf at Holdfast Bay, about 11 km south-west of where central Adelaide is now situated. Glenelg was favoured by freshwater lagoons and shady trees, and on 28th December 1836, Captain John Hindmarsh proclaimed His Majesty's Province of South Australia at the proclamation tree, later to be a much photographed bent eucalypt.

Everything from the first sale of land, the the post office, customs, the jetty, the baths, churches, the morgue, banks, police stations, Governors of SA and more.
