70 things to do in KapundaWelcome to Kapunda Business Alliance where we showcase our fantastic resources, attractions and businesses. Kapunda is a one-hour drive from Adelaide and is a great place to visit, live or work. Hospital, Schools, Medical Centres, Supermarket, History, Copper Mine, Industry, Agriculture, best Folk Museum in Australia, and great people!

Kapunda Mechanical Bears
These little bears have entertained children, locals and tourists around Kapunda for a long time. Two people have complained to the Light Council and they have been taken away. More info to follow here soon.

New toy shop in Kapunda
Wild Woodland Toys & Gifts 

New Foodland Supermarket
The contract to build the new Supermarket has been let to local construction company Ahrens, so the process to construct it has now started.  Engineering and prefabrication work occurs off site.  We would expect on site works to commence early in 2019.  KBA believes the new Supermarket will be an excellent addition to Kapunda and hopefully will encourage more people to shop in the town, to the benefit of other businesses.  It is expected that it will also employ more people than the current supermarket.  It is a long time coming, but hopefully will be worth the wait.

Town Square progress
Kapunda Town Square Time-Lapse Video
The Town Square is essentially now complete.
The public carpark is now sealed and includes a Tesla electric vehicle recharging station.

Kerrstructions, Elbourne Engineering, Kapunda Shed, Bishop Building, Ahrens, Council’s Horticultural staff and many others have all been involved in this great project.
