Moonta Mines Walking Trails

The Moonta Mines Walking Trails help you discover the history of this copper mining region via marked trails. Ryans Walk is a short walk of about 500 metres and takes about one hour. Hancocks Walk - from the miners cottage or sweet shop - is approximately 45 minutes return. Hughes Walk is a short loop around historic Hughes Engine House and takes about one hour. Interpretive signs illustrate the geology of Moonta ore bodies and the mining methods used to work them. A trail brochure is available from the Moonta Tourist Office and the Moonta Mines Museum. It's a fascinating part of South Australia's mining history, and well worth a look.
