In the beginning, there was the village of Mundoora serving the district farmers at the head of the Yorke Peninsula. Then the State Government stepped in to commission a local seafarer named Captain Dale to establish a port to move the wheat and other produce from the Mundoora region. The first jetty was completed at what we now know as Port Broughton in 1874. And in the intervening years Mundoora has changed little, while Port Broughton has become a popular fishing and boating resort and the commercial hub for the region. The focal point Mundoora village and nearby farms is the Community Sports Club. The Port provides not only swimming and boating recreation, but the deepwater harbour, which is protected by Mundoora Arm Inlet, supports a professional prawn fleet, while recreational anglers are attracted by the plentiful stock of fish and crabs. There are all weather boat ramps at Port Broughton and in nearby Fishermans Bay. Port Broughton hosts a Doll Spectacular in May in every even year.
