Historic copper mining town famous as the home and base of the 'cattle king', Sir Sidney Kidman
Kapunda is located 79 km north of Adelaide. It is a large and prosperous township which has enjoyed three clear periods of development - the period of copper mining, the period when it was the base for Sir Sidney Kidman's huge cattle operations, and the current period when it has become an important service centre for the surrounding rural area.
Still it is the mining connection which looms over the town in the very physical presence of Map Kernow (the Son of Cornwall) a huge 8 metre statue of a miner which greets visitors as they drive into the town.
