The Percy Beaglehole Memorial Gate was erected in Moonta in 1936 in honour of Percy Beaglehole, twenty years after he was killed in action in France during the First World War. The Memorial is made of white marble and is located at the entrance of Nankivell Park and the Norman McAuley Senior Citizen Homes at the corner of Blanche Terrace and Military Road. Private Percy Beaglehole, who was 25 years old at the time of his death, bequeathed in his will money earned from dividends that were paid from mining shares. The money was for incapacitated returned servicemen to Moonta who found themselves unable to earn their own living.



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.
