Moonta Mines

Moonta Mines national heritage site forms a unique and important part of the Cornish mining heritage of Australia, and a visit to Moonta and the Moonta Mines State Heritage Area will ensure an educational and informative experience whatever your interests.

In the mid 1800s, Moonta had the richest copper mines in the country. Falling copper prices in 1923 caused closure of most of them. Fortunately much of the infrastructure remained to offer you the opportunity to see our unique and rare national heritage site.
