Located some 150 km north-west of Adelaide via Port Wakefield is the Copper Coast, part of the Yorke Peninsula region, with claims to some of the best beaches in South Australia. Often referred to as ‘The Copper Triangle’, the Copper Coast is a small area that include the three major towns of Kadina, Moonta and Wallaroo that were founded upon the discovery of rich copper lodes in the 1860’s.

Wallaroo was soon processing the ore from the region in the largest smelters in the southern hemisphere. The majority of people that came to work the mines were mainly from Cornwall and Wales, as the Cornish people had the reputation of being the best hard rocker miners in the world, being able to work under severe conditions.

This Welsh heritage is still very evident today in the three towns, bestowing the title of Australia’s Little Cornwall. The miners and families of the time were to bring their religion, architecture and customs and today, their contribution to Australia is celebrated in the Kernewek Lowender Festival.
