About Moonta

Read more about Moonta

Moonta was once the centre of the copper mining universe in the 1860's, and the area is steeped in Cornish heritage and is still a thriving popular holiday spot on the Yorke Peninsula.

Moonta is one of 3 Copper Coast towns that are host to the Kernewek Lowender Cornish Festival held every 2 years during May (in odd-numbered years).  This festival is the largest Cornish Festival in the world.

The historic Moonta Mines Museum and the Sweets Shop is a must for all visitors.  The tourist train will take you around the Moonta Mines State Heritage Area on weekends - a fun thing for families to do.

If history and heritage is not your thing, relax on the white sandy beaches or fish from the jetties at Moonta Bay or nearby Port Hughes - you are bound to catch something, or you could book to go out with a Yorke Peninsula local on a fishing charter.

For something a little bit different visit the award winning Ducatoon Park horse stud just outside Moonta, on the Kadina Road.  Moonta has a large supermarket, antiques stores and a variety of retail shops. Moonta is approximately a 1 ½ hour drive from Adelaide.
