It is situated 112 kilometers southwest of Adelaide in Gulf St Vincent in the State of South Australia .The island was about 10,000 years ago by rising sea levels separated from mainland Australia. The finds of stone tools lay close to the conjecture that this part of Australia was inhabited 11,000 years ago. The current view is that the former natives again disappeared around 200 BC. The reason for this is thought to be diseases, tribal feuds, climate change or migration.
