Either you had a discussion with a South Australian Senator (i.e., a member
of the Australian Senate elected to represent the state of South Australia)
or you had a discussion with a Member of the Legislative Council.  You can't
have had a discussion with a member of the South Australian Senate since the
upper house of the South Australian state parliament isn't called the Senate,
its called the Legislative Council.
