Darke’s Monument

Darke Peak (formerly Darke’s Peak) is a small agricultural town located in central Eyre Peninsula. The town takes its name from the explorer John Charles Darke, who was injured in a spear attack by local Aboriginal people whilst travelling through the area on 24 October 1844. He died the next day and was buried at the foot of the large peak. Governor Grey expressed a wish that some landform in the region of the grave should be named to honour him. The historical monument is located at Koongawa via Kyancutta, near the highway between Kimba and Wudinna.
