Moculta is a settlement in South Australia.[1] At the 2006 census, Moculta had a population of 299.[2]

The earliest settlers in the area were English, Scottish and Irish migrants. German migrants also came to the area from 1853. They built both the Gruenberg (1859) and Gnadenberg Lutheran churches. The township of Moculta itself was surveyed in 1865 and occupied soon after.[3]
