The Bound for South Australia website has been a team effort.

History Trust of South Australia, an agency of the Government of South Australia, initiated this project as part of its commemoration of the 175th anniversary of the establishment of South Australia in 2011.  The project has been undertaken as a collaboration with the South Australian Department of Education and Children’s Services (DECS).
