Ungarra SA


Postcode: 5607

Ungarra is a small agricultural town located in the north eastern Eyre Peninsula, South Australia approximately 630 km from the state’s capital, Adelaide. The name ‘Ungarra’ is derived from a nearby waterhole of the same name.

Settlers started farming the area in the early 1900s, however only a few of their original homesteads still stand, one being the Darve Homestead. Another relic of the past is the old windmill that still stands in Pioneer Memorial Park within the township.

The town has a number of facilities, including sporting grounds and a primary school. The town is part of a popular tourist drive that can be done from Tumby Bay, with no camping or accommodation available within the town. Other conveniences include public toilets and payphones.
