Surrounded by stunning seaside vistas, history-proud Moonta was founded with the
1861 discovery, initially in a wombat burrow, of rich copper deposits and it became
South Australia’s second-biggest town.
The mines were largely operated by Cornish miners, and Moonta is today tagged
“Australia’s Little Cornwall,” with no visit complete without sampling a
mouth-watering Cornish pastie from The Cornish Kitchen.
