Kapunda  South Australia

On the fringe of the Barossa Valley 80km north of Adelaide, Kapunda might be small in size and population, but this market town is big on history.

Part of its history stands south of the town in the form of an eight-metre bronze statue known as Map Kernow or Son of Cornwall. Cast from the work of artist Van Zetten, the statue is a tribute to the Cornish miners who worked Australia’s first, incredibly rich copper mine.

The Cornish link is also celebrated in Australia’s oldest Celtic festival which is held on the weekend before Easter. The Celtic connection is underpinned by the Kapunda Museum collection displayed in the original Baptist Church and the displays presented by the Bagot's Fortune interpretive mining centre.

Kapunda was also home for more than 40 years to Australia’s Cattle King, Sir Sydney Kidman who owned a chain of cattle and horse properties whose combined area was greater than the size of England. His family home, Ereinga, now forms the main building of the Kapunda High School.
