Visited on Tuesday 3rd March and Wednesday 4th March. The main towns are Wallaroo, Moonta and Kadina. All full of history about the early days of copper mining, two days was not enough, suggest you allow more time when you visit.

We travelled up from Adelaide and spent three nights in Wallaroo. The other towns – Kadina and Moonta, are within easy driving distance. Each town has an interesting shopping centre with good eating places. The towns each have a history relating to the old copper mines and the Cornish miners who came to live here. Each town has an historic town walk and town drive which are easy to do and give interesting insights. Particularly noticeable are the solid stone buildings of the time. Moonta's special feature is the nearby Mines area which is worth exploring. Kadina has an interesting painted water tower and art gallery. Wallaroo has a jetty frequented by ‘fishermen‘ alongside the grain silos. We feel that our length of time here was just right for us, and we recommend this area for an enjoyable vacation.

A quick stop off on the way down the Yorke Peninsula for work. Always finding a new cafe for lunch and not had a bad experience yet..
