Kapunda became a very prosperous town and the income from the Kapunda mine and subsequently from the copper mines in Burra, gave a much-needed boost to the South Australian economy in the 1800s.

Kapunda was the first commercial mining centre in Australia. Francis Dutton (the brother of Frederick, the original owner of Anlaby) together with the son of Captain Bagot, discovered copper in 1863.

Kapunda has an excellent museum run by hard working volunteers. Well worth a visit. Open each afternoon 1.00 to 4.00 pm.

There are many fine buildings in Kapunda and there is a walking tour that can be taken to see the best of these. Details are available from the Kapunda visitor Centre in Main Street.
