DescriptionEdit

North Moonta is located within the federal division of Grey, the state electoral district of Narungga and the local government area of the Copper Coast Council.[4][3][5] It was originally a private subdivision, and the boundaries of the modern locality were established in January 1999. It includes the former Moonta Hospital in Majors Road, which closed in December 2013.[6][7] The former hospital operators, Moonta Health & Aged Care Services, continue to operate the adjacent Parkview Aged Hostel.[8] The Moonta Lifestyle Village in Barbary Court and the Copper Coast Lifestyle Village in James Place are also located at North Moonta.[9] The south end of the locality includes a residential-zoned area to the west of the main Moonta-Wallaroo Road, bounded by Haylock Road, and an industrial-zoned area to the east of the main road. It also includes a "rural living" area to the west of the residential area, bounded by Haylock Road, Muddy Lane and Binney Road. The remaining two-thirds of the locality is zoned for primary production.[2] On 14 August 2014, it received additional territory from Warburto and Cross Roads as part of a boundary realignment of the local area.[5]
