How to Reach

By Car

Port Pirie is just off the A1 around 250km north of Adelaide, and an hour or so south of Port Augusta. The A1 leaves the coast at Port Wakefield and, with the exception of the salt lakes at Locheil, takes a direct route lacking in attractions. The Copper Coast Highway is an alternate route, hitting a few towns along the coast.

Key places to visit
Nyrstar Port Pirie Smelter, Flinders View Park, Solomontown Beach


Places to Visit

Nyrstar Port Pirie Smelter

Is the largest lead smelter in the world. The large chimney is visible from many miles around. The best view of the facility is probably from the other side of the Port Pirie River, just cross the river at the bridge to nowhere off the main street.

Flinders View Park

Flinders View is a suburb of Ipswich, Queensland, Australia. The origin of the suburb name is from the view and proximity to Flinders Peak from the suburb of Flinders View

Solomontown Beach

A nice pier, man-made beach and swimming spot. Take care with strong tides if you go too far out into the river. Showers and change rooms.
