Mulberry, Kangaroo Island and Yurara
Kangaroo Island (KI), Reeves Point, is home to a Mulberry tree that was planted by the State's first Colonists some 178 years ago, (approx 1836) it is the site of the first official European settlement in South Australia and this tree is believed to be the last remaining tree of the earliest plantation of European trees in South Australia and still bears fruit today!
Norma and Jeffery Jenkins were successful in their bid to purchase an original World War II soldier settlers farm 'Yurara' in 1964. Yurara is approximately 20 kilometres outside of Kingscote, KI. Norma and Jeffery moved from Kingscote, where Jeffery's parents Dorothy and Clem Jenkins ran the local butcher, to Yurara with their young family. There they planted Yurara's original Mulberry Tree amongst other fruit trees in the farms orchard.
