Miners Cottage And Garden

From $4

The National Trust Miners Cottage and Garden gives an insight into the lives of the Cornish miners and their families who travelled from the other side of the world to work the great copper mines of Moonta and the surrounding areas. Built around 1870 and furnished in the pre-1900 style, the cottage is an example of a typical miner’s family home. Built of wattle and daub, mud bricks, clay and limestone and given a coat of plaster and whitewashed, many of these cottages were once to be found throughout the mine residential area. Multi ticket admission is available to Moonta Mines Museum, Miners Cottage and Moonta Mines Tourist Railway.
