Moonta is a town on the Spencer Highway as you head south from Kadina on the Yorke Peninsula in South Australia.  This area is known as the Copper Coast and the discovery of copper led to the establishment of the Moonta Mining Company which attracted skilled miners from Cornwell. The world’s largest Cornish festival is held biennially in Moonta, Wallaroo and Kadina and is a huge celebration of all things Cornish.  As you would expect this is the place to buy cornish pasties and some of the local bakers specialize in this yummy treat.

Moonta has some beautiful old buildings and the Moonta Mines Museum is well worth a visit - built about 1878.  Lovely looking main street with plenty of well maintained stone buildings that seem to be prevalent in this part of Australia. Some of the historical buildings in Moonta now contain antique shops, cafes and hotels.

Moonta is only about six kilometres from Moonta Bay – a lovely coastal village with large caravan park, great beaches, plenty of very good fishing spots and Splash Town (a council owned water park).
