Wallaroo - Copper CoastMarch 11, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C
Wallaroo was once a bustling mining town, which mined, smeltered and delivered copper and other metals to the world. Today it is a popular holiday town. Situated approx 160 kms from Adelaide, it now has a multimillion dollar marina with family recreation in mind. Boating, paddle boarding, windsurfing, sailing and swimming all popular.
