However on a trip there in 2005 I thought the town had grown rather tired. On a sunny afternoon in winter it seemed remarkably quiet and most of the main street businesses were closed. The contrast with, say, Tanunda is striking. Perhaps the place needs reinvigorating with a mix of public and private dollars. Many of the fine old buildings, both public and private, could do with sprucing up.
There is some excellent wrought-iron lace work.
Three of the photos of Kapunda were taken on a trip in 1981, using a conventional camera taking 35mm slides. They were scanned for the website. The rest were taken in Winter 2005 using a digital camera.
