Description:

Very rare colonial engraving of Killalpaninna Mission, or Bethesda Mission, was a Lutheran mission for Aboriginal people in northeast South Australia, the site is now located in the locality of Etadunna. It existed from 1866 to 1915. 

The mission was founded by two German missionaries, Johann Friedrich Gößling and Ernst Homann, and two lay brethren, Hermann Vogelsang and Ernst Jakob. After a difficult three-month journey from Tanunda, they established their mission station at Lake Killalpaninna (about 40 km south of Coopers Creek) and tried to convert the Dieri (Diyari) people to Christianity.
