Moonta Mines Sweet Shop – National Trust Property

Help the National Trust protect our heritage by undertaking a regular volunteer commitment!

The National Trust works to preserve and promote Australia’s indigenous, environmental, and built heritage and culture.

A huge number of positions are available across the state varying from front of house, food service and clerical roles to guiding, research, promotions and fundraising.

Volunteering at the National Trust is a fantastic way to meet new people, develop new skills and contribute to the history of your local community.

About this site: The shop was once a post office and was erected in 1946 and closed in 1976. At the time of closing it was said to be the smallest post office in South Australia. The old post office is now a sweet shop stocking old fashioned drinks, sweets and ice creams. It is listed as a protected property by the National Trust of South Australia.
