Moonta, on Yorke Peninsula, was a copper mining centre in the early days of South Australia. Many miners came out from Cornwall in England and as a result the mining buildings, such as these, are Cornish in style.
To this day Cornish pasties are very popular in the area.
We visited Moonta on a wet day and landed up with plenty of sticky clay on both the car and our shoes.
