Note: As part of the 2016 Boundary Redistribution, the electorate of Goyder was renamed Narungga.
The meaning of Narungga is campsite. The Yorke Peninsula was the home of the Narungga people, who occupied the land from near Port Wakefield in the east to Port Broughton in the west, and down to the southern tip of the peninsula. It is believed that the Narungga people maintained large settlements along the coast through much of each year. Coastal campsites provided a regular supply of food and fresh water, as well as a gathering place for social and religious ceremony. The Narungga people managed and preserved their lands. They used fire to clear old grasses and to promote fresh plant growth. Fresh water rock holes were covered with slabs of stone or brushwood to keep the water clean and to prevent animals from drinking from them. Track ways were maintained through the thick mallee forests, linking places and people throughout the peninsula.
Centred around the Yorke Peninsula, Narungga is comprised of the District Council of Barunga West, the District Council of the Copper Coast, the Yorke Peninsula Council and portions of the Wakefield Regional Council and the District Council of Mallala.
