Located 16 kilometres inland from Port Broughton, Mundoora is a small town with a population of around 130 people.

Mundoora was a hive of agricultural activity from the 1870’s through to the 20th century with a range of farming and cropping operations in the district, and prior to World War 1 Mundoora held the record for the highest wheat receival in South Australia.

On 11th March 1876, a 10-mile railway line operated between Port Broughton and Mundoora, linking the Port Broughton jetty to Mundoora.  Wheat and barley were transported in four-bushel bags from the Mundoora wheat stacks and railway line siding to Port Broughton, where it was then loaded onto ketches.  Farming was booming around Mundoora, with up to 100,000 bags of wheat stacked in one yield.

The ’Pie Cart’ operated on the railway line between Mundoora and Port Broughton, seating up to 12 passengers on four parallel seats.  Also transporting the mail, the journey took 75 minutes to travel the 10 miles to Mundoora from Port Broughton, and operated until 1923.

Mundoora welcomes travellers to explore their town with an overnight stay and camping area for motorhomes, campers and self-contained caravans in the heart of town. Find out more about the caravan park & camping facilities in the Top of The Yorke.

Nearby is the heritage display showcasing Mundoora’s railway and farming history, with a range of interpretive signage throughout the display area.
