South Australia is the southern, central state on the mainland of the continent of Australia. It has an area of 984,377 square kilometres (12.8% of the total Australian land mass) and is the driest of the Australian States and Territories.

Water supplies are supplemented with water piped from the River Murray, the only major river in the State.

When South Australia was colonised in 1836 it was home to more than 50 different Aboriginal language speaking groups. The Department of Education and Children's Services acknowledges and respects the traditional custodians of South Australian lands and their deep feelings of attachment and relationship to country.
