The Cornish Triangle

Every country’s got a Little Italy and a Chinatown but what about a Little Cornwall? We do. It’s called the Cornish Triangle and refers to the land between the South Australian mining towns of Moonta, Wallaroo, and Kadina. It’s named after the thousands of Cornish who immigrated during the 1800s after their own mining industry collapsed.

The copper mines have long since closed but the Cornish presence can still be felt. Walk into any local bakery, and you’ll find pasties more popular than pies. And of course, there’s the Kernewek Lowender – quite the tongue twister (just like our pasties). Although a bit of a mouthful, it means Cornish happiness and is a festival that celebrates Cornish tradition and Aussie prosperity with pasties high on the menu.
