Once the most important gold fossicking area in South Australia, today Echunga is a pleasant farming town with a good selection of historic buildings to admire.
The Jupiter Creek Heritage Trail interprets the mining craze that took place in the mid to late 1800s and includes visits to the 80 metre New Phoenix Tunnel and several old shafts. Don’t forget to take your torch! There’s also a heritage walk available in town, and a treasure market on the first Saturday of each month.
Surrounded by rich farmland and natural bushland, the 18 hole Echunga Golf Club is another attraction.
