wurley: Word of the day for December 28, 2017

wurley , n :
(chiefly South Australia) An Australian indigenous shelter made from small branches with the leaves still attached. (chiefly South Australia, by extension) A settlement made up of such shelters. On this day in 1836, John Hindmarsh, the first Governor of South Australia, announced that South Australia had been created a British province, and that both the indigenous population and settlers would be equally protected by the law. For some years the date was commemorated as Proclamation Day, until the holiday was changed to the first otherwise working day after Christmas Day (usually 26 December).
