The District Council of the Copper Coast is a local government area (LGA) in South Australia located in the Copper Coast region of the Yorke Peninsula.

The council was formed in May 1997 through the amalgamation of the former District Council of Northern Yorke Peninsula and Corporation of the Town of Wallaroo. The Council area is divided into four wards and is represented by a mayor and ten councillors.[2]

The four wards are centred on the four largest towns in the council area: Wallaroo, Kadina, Moonta and Paskeville.[3]

Localities[edit]

The three largest towns of the Copper Coast council area are Kadina (the seat), Wallaroo and Moonta. Other towns and localities under the council's jurisdiction include:[4]
