The smelting area was set up in 1861 following the discovery of copper ore at nearby Wallaroo Mine (Kadina) and Moonta. The first jetty was constructed in 1861 as part of the contract to build a tramway to the Wallaroo Mine. It soon became one of the busiest ports in the state and continues that role today with the export of grain. Wallaroo was named as South Australia's Small Tourism Town in the 2022 Top Tourism Town Awards.
