River Angas

The River Angas is a small river rising on the eastern side of the Mount Lofty Ranges in South Australia. Its headwaters are near Macclesfield and it flows generally southward through Strathalbyn, emptying into Lake Alexandrina near the town of Milang.

The river was discovered and named on 31 December 1837, during the exploration by Robert Cock, William Finlayson, A. Wyatt and G. Barton from Adelaide to Lake Alexandrina. "We gave to this river the name of Angas, in honour of the chairman of the South Australian Company, whose interest in and exertions on behalf of the colony are well known."[1]
