Kyancutta

Kyancutta

Where the Eyre Peninsula comes together.


The town of Kyancutta marks the junction of the Eyre and Tod highways and derives its name from an Aboriginal term "Kutta Kutta" meaning "Little Night Hawk".

Granite outcrops common to the area can be found nearby, and Polkdinney Park contains several implements that are indicative of the equipment used in the early days of settlement. A picnic table is also provided.

Things To Do


Corrobinnie Hill

The Hill, located approximately 20km west of Wudinna, is only accessible by 4WD and is a popular picnic destination with locals and visitors. Corrobinnie Hill is a large granite outcrop on the outskirts of the Pinkawillinie Conservation Park, providing views of the park and Gawler Ranges in the distance. Children and adults alike will have lots of fun climbing and exploring the granite boulders that characterise the Hill. There are no facilities and access is free.

Waddikee Rock

Located directly adjacent to the Eyre Highway at Koongawa, 20km east of Kyancutta, Waddikee Rock is a small exposed granite dome that provides an excellent view of the surrounding landscape. A monument to John Charles Darke, an early pioneer who was fatally speared while travelling through the area, is at the base of the rock.
