This is the second of two volumes with the title 'Kurlge', written at Tindale's residence 'Kurlge' in Blackwood, Adelaide, following his retirement from the South Australian Museum.Tindale notes on the frontispiece that 'Kurlge' is a Ramindjeri word for 'sheoak' and is the name used for his residence at Blackwood, South Australia. He writes:
'Our house was named for the very large sheoak growing in the garden. It was originally a sheoak grove on the site of an aboriginal campage Relics were unearthed when the garden was being prepared during 1955-1956.'
This volume contains pages 557 to 980. The period between 17 May and 8 September 1966 is recorded in the Colorado journal (see AA 338/1/51/1-3). The volume includes both a contents list and a 41 page index. The journal entries have been written on the right-hand page leaving the left for annotations, drawings, newspaper clippings etc. The volume's subject-matter varies widely, from results of insect light-trapping at Blackwood to botanical and ethnographic notes and records of family activities. The journal's last entry records the funeral of Tindale's first wife, Dorothy.
