A Small Village in South Australia
Now an inner city suburb of Adelaide, Mitcham (formerly Mitcham Village) was created in 1840 as a village separate from Adelaide, providing necessary support to a sheep station at Brown Hill Creek which was owned by the South Australia Company. The area was inhabited by the Kaurna people prior to European settlement with a group of approximately 150 camped at "Wirraparinga", now known as Mitcham Reserve (formerly Brown Hill Creek Reserve).

As part of the South Australia History Festival, the City of Mitcham is inviting you to take a guided walk through the Mitcham Village Historic Conservation area, to see and hear how Mitcham Village has evolved over the past 178 years.
