Turner’s Paddock, known officially as Park 23, is located in the parklands on the western edge of Adelaide. It is fairly representative of refuse dumps around Adelaide from that period (Piddock 1992). The site is located adjacent to Burbridge Road and the West Terrace Cemetery. The site was used not long after the formation of the colony and continued into the early twentieth century. The name of Turner’s Paddock came from the 1920s when it was used by Turner’s Butchers for pasturing their horses (Piddock 1992).

Date coverage: 1978 - 1995
Location: Adjacent to West Terrace Cemetery, Adelaide, South Australia, Australia
