Myponga is a settlement in South Australia.

Myponga began as a settlement as a series of land purchases on section 521 of the cadastral unit of the Hundred of Myponga in 1858. In 1939, a sub-division was laid out on part of Section 521. Boundaries for the locality were created on 5 August 1999 for the "long established name."[1]

At the 2016 census, the locality had a population of 744 of which 393 lived in its town centre.[3][2]

One of the first pioneer families to settle the area, was the family of Con Polden and Mary Windsor (c.1840) along with their children from Wiltshire in South West England.[citation needed]

Myponga is located within the federal division of Mayo, the state electoral district of Mawson, and the local government area of the District Council of Yankalilla.[7][6][1]
