Myponga is at the centre of rich grazing and dairy country, where herds of Friesian cows are often joined at dusk by mobs of grey kangaroos. The town is 58 kilometres south of Adelaide in the Southern Mount Lofty Ranges.

Head to Myponga via Carrickalinga and enjoy views of the coast from hilltop lookouts – some of the best in South Australia. There’s a good weekend craft and produce market, and a boutique brewery.

Many years ago, large gum trees were felled here and prepared for use in the Broken Hill mines. A cheese factory was also established and its produce was noted for its high quality, much of which was exported. In the early 1950s uranium was discovered and mining prospects investigated, however no mines were developed. The name derived from the Aboriginal word maippunga meaning locality of high cliffs.

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.
