Let us take you on a journey of discovery.
Visit the friendly staff at the Moonta History Centre, located in the School of Mines, Ellen Street, Moonta. Our volunteers are experienced researchers in family history as well as the history of Moonta businesses and residences since the establishment of the district. Information is available about the mining history, mining era & families of Cornish Miners.
