Located 160 kilometres from Adelaide, Kadina is the largest town on the Yorke Peninsula.
It houses Australia’s National Dryland Farming Centre and a Banking and Currency Museum. Kadina is a key site for the bustling Kernewek Lowender (Cornish Festival) held every odd-numbered year. Along with the nearby towns of Moonta and Wallaroo, Kadina forms what is known as Australia’s Little Cornwall.
Kadina began as a township servicing the copper mines of the Wallaroo Mine. Copper was discovered in 1859. Now it is the largest commercial centre on Yorke Peninsula with government departments, four banks, shopping centres, three hotels and a caravan park.
