Moonta Mines

Hayesy visits Moonta in the state’s copper triangle and discovers the history of the area.  In its heyday Moonta was home to the richest copper mines in the country and just recently Moonta Mines was added to the National Heritage list.

Hayesy takes a stroll around the Mines, checks out the Museum and gets a lesson from the local blacksmith. Then he jumps aboard the heritage railway for a guided tour past the many historic landmarks, and finishes his day at the Moonta Mines Sweet Shop.
