Mundoora is a settlement in South Australia, 16 km inland from Port Broughton, to which it was connected by a horse-drawn railway around 1876. Its tram, dubbed "The Pie Cart", which was described as a "kind of second-hand coffin drawn by one horse" and still in operation in 1923 was later relegated to the Railways Museum and the line dismantled. At the 2006 census, Mundoora had a population of 248.
