The Moonta Area School Memorial Trail covers a 100 year timeline commemorating the conflicts Australia served in during the twentieth Century. A sign board gives a brief history of each conflict. Along the 275 metre trail you will also find signs for each year of the twentieth century with highlights from the history of that year. The walls are made from copper stone donated by the Poona Mines North Yelta. Servicemen and women born in Moonta are represented on the roll of honour.

The official opening of the Memorial Trail was awarded Community Event of the Year 2017 by the previous District Council of the Copper Coast. (now the Copper Coast Council)



The Yorke Peninsula is the traditional lands of the Narungga (Nharangga) people, who have lived on, and cared for, this country since the beginning of time. We work, live and travel on Nharannga Banggara [Country], and we take time away from those pursuits to acknowledge and pay our deep respects to the Nharangga Elders of the past and present. 

Today, it is essential that we continue to care for and protect our spectacular natural environment. Tread lightly and leave no trace. Learn more about responsible and respectful travel on Yorke Peninsula.
