About 20 kilometres north of Kadina - the Yorke Peninsula’s largest town - Alford is a small village to the north of South Australia’s ‘Little Cornwall’, which is framed in a triangle formed by Kadina, Wallaroo and Moonta.

The area’s odd name stems from the flood of Cornwall miners into the region in the wake of the discovery of major copper deposits in the 1850s. The heritage is celebrated in Kadina (Aboriginal for ‘lizard plain’) in May in every odd calendar year with Kernewek Lowender - the world’s largest festival of Cornish food, song and music.

Kadina also boasts the multiple award-winning Banking and Currency Museum, which houses a rare collection of coins, notes and minting and banking memorabilia.

The village of Alford is just 11km from Tickera Bay which the locals insist is graced by the best crabbing beach in Australia. Alford is also connected directly by road to Wallaroo whose delightful, safe swimming beach attracts thousands of holidaying families every year.
