For those of us who are young enough and able to, Splash Town at Moonta Bay is a great place for kids to have fun with water. This water park features slides, fountains and waterfalls, and has plenty of tricks that can ensure fun for all the young kids. Entry is free, and the water park is open during school holidays, weekends, summer and spring.
This 16km self-guided drive takes you on a grand tour of the town and the adjacent Moonta Mines with over 60 items of interest to see. The Moonta Mines were at the centre of copper mining and production in the 19th Century and although times have passed, the owners of local residences and properties have done exceptionally well to restore many of the buildings back to a condition akin to their hey-day.
On the tour around the town, opportunities exist to see some of the buildings of yesteryear, the mining equipment and houses, a tourist train as well as several walks and opportunities to climb some of the gigantic tailing heaps left behind by the miners.
