Colourful culture and history

Copper was found at Kadina on the Yorke Peninsula in 1859 and resulted in a flood of workers from Cornwall, England. In recognition of this Cornish history, the Kernewek Lowender Festival is held every two years. It is the largest Cornish festival in the world.

Relive childhood memories and find a treasure or two at the Moonta Antiques and Collectables Fair. Car enthusiasts may find hidden treasures too at the Kadina Swap Meet, held in June.
