KAPUNDA, SOUTH AUSTRALIA

The first sight to greet visitors to Kapunda is that of The Big Miner which sits on the side of the road into the town. This is a depiction of ‘The Cornish Miner’ who was instrumental in the development of this whole region. The statue was named Map Kernow, being the Cornish dialect for ‘Son of Cornwall’, although he is more commonly known as Map the Miner now. It was unveiled on 5 June 1988 and the sculptor was Ben Van Zetten.
