Port Pirie

Port Pirie - Flinders Ranges And Outback - South Australia

Port Pirie was once one of the busiest railway centres in the country and today is home to the largest lead smelter in the world. The grand buildings lining the pretty main street are just part of Port Pirie's personality along with a pride for its close proximity to action on the water at Spencer Gulf. Situated on the east coast of Spencer Gulf, 224 kilometres north of Adelaide, this seaport town is nestled at the foot of the stunning Southern Flinders Ranges. Visitors have options for their water activity from fishing to swimming, waterskiing and yachting.

Make time to visit the award-winning Regional Tourism and Arts Centre with its lifelike model of the longest white pointer shark caught in South Australian waters. The centre also showcases a fabulous mix of exhibitions and art but that's not all, the Pirie Rail Express calls the centre home as well. Visitors can embark on a 1.2 kilometre ride on the miniature railway which replicates the Port Pirie to Broken Hill journey.

Relax at any one of the picnic spots around town including Memorial Park and check out Solomontown Beach for the display of public art.
