The 1914 - 1918 Moonta Memorial Gun is located within the grounds of the Moonta Tourist Office in Blanche Terrace. The gun originally arrived in Moonta in 1919 by train and was placed at the Moonta War Memorial site, after several moves it fell into disrepair. In 2004 a committee was formed to raise funds to repair and display the gun. The dedication and formal opening of this display was held in February 2007. The display holds a fully restored 105 mm Light Field Howitzer used in WWI and a number of other articles with historical significance.

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.
