Nunga courts operate at various locations in South Australia, including Port Adelaide (since June 1999), Port Augusta (2002), Murray Bridge (2001), Port Lincoln, Ceduna (2003) and Berri (pilot program). The Nunga court is designed to work with Indigenous people who have pleaded guilty to an offence. It operates with respect to Indigenous culture and is different from a regular court in that it is more informal (the magistrate sits off the bench) and the offender may have family or other cultural representatives in court with them.
