Moonta Bay

A popular holiday town with good beaches, jetty and fishing, Moonta is located on the shores of Spencer Gulf 168 kilometres from Adelaide.

Copper was discovered here in 1861 and led to the establishment of the Moonta Mining Company. An interesting way to take in the history of this mining region is on the tiny tourist train that runs on weekends. The train station is opposite the Moonta Mines National Trust Museum, in the former Moonta Mines School.

There is a range of accommodation available, some of which is within walking distance of sandy beaches, jetties and cafes.

Where Are Australia's Best Beaches?

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
