The Area: Port Pirie
Perched on the east coast of the Spencer Gulf, Port Pirie is a quaint town The city is a gateway to South Australia’s largest mountain range, Flinders Ranges, but it retains much of its own charm, too. Beach enthusiasts can appreciate the safe waters of the nearby Solomontown Beach, while the Victorian-era Port Pirie’s railway station, which is now a museum, is eye candy for architecture buffs.
