Wallaroo


Wallaroo is a port town on the western side of Yorke Peninsular in South Australia with it’s history in the copper mining industry. One of three towns that make up the Copper Triangle, the other two being Kadina and Moonta, the area was known as Little Cornwall due to all the Cornish miners who came to work in the mines. It now exports agricutural products such as barley, wheat, canola and continues to handle grains through the conveyor jetty and silos, which is what I went to photograph.
