Port Pirie

Port Pirie is a city steeped in history and proud traditions. From the early Italian settlers to our industrial cornerstones, this history is celebrated through places, people and events. Port Pirie was built upon industry and still celebrates this past while moving into a future as a progressive and beautiful place to live, work and visit.

Port Pirie is developing as a city with unique attractions and a thriving events program. Attractions based on the city's railway history include miniature and model railways. Marvel at the awe-inspiring shark exhibition, featuring a life-sized replica of a 5.5 metre white pointer that drowned near Port Pirie. Visit an award winning gallery, take a trip back in time at one of the local museums or relax at one of the many beautiful parks and gardens dotted around the city.

Port Pirie is ideally located on the Spencer Gulf with the picturesque backdrop of the Flinders Ranges. Visit Solomontown Beach and Port Pirie Foreshore to take in the waterfront.

We encourage you to base yourselves in Port Pirie, enjoy our attractions then travel around the region to explore the Southern Flinders Ranges!
