Founded at the turn of the century as an indigenous mission community, Koonibba is about 586 kilometers (364 miles) northwest of Adelaide just inland from the southern coast. It is also 5 kilometers (3.1 miles) north of the Eyre Highway. The small community can lay claim to having the oldest indigenous footy club in Australia, the Koonibba Roosters, established in 1906. 

While still playing for the Adelaide Crows, small forward Eddie Betts and his in indigenous teammates paid a visit. For Betts, it was a homecoming of sorts as he was raised in Port Lincoln, just up the highway from Adelaide, While there he caught up with his brother. The video clip has comments from several locals as well as Eddie talking to his brother.
