Kadina

Kadina - Yorke Peninsula - South Australia

Kadina plays host to the world's largest Cornish Festival, held every two years on uneven numbers since 1973, due to the large number of Cornish immigrants recruited to work in the copper mines. Kadina became the site of the launch of coppermining on the Yorke Peninsula, a consequence of wombat diggings uncovering copper, this led to the naming of Kadina's hotel; Wombat Hotel, as a tribute to this Australian marsupial. Kadina is the commercial centre for surrounding areas and is the largest town on the Yorke Peninsula located 144 kilometres north north-west of Adelaide.

Visitors can enjoy historic walks around the town and surrounding areas including fabulous specimens of Cornish architecture at the Royal Exchange and the Wombat Hotel, churches and the Kadina Hotel. Browse the Ascot Theatre Gallery, Victoria Square Park and The Farm Shed Museum and Tourist Centre on the outskirts of town towards Moonta.
