Travel Tips for Port Pirie

Industry and history

by iandsmith

"What to expect"

Being the 6th largest town in South Australia isn't really a great claim to fame but it is one of things listed for Port Pirie in tourist literature.
You'll find it about 220 kms north of Adelaide on the eastern shore of Spencer Gulf.
The driving force behind the town are the huge silver, lead and zinc smelters which process the raw ore brought from Broken Hill and the large port needed to move it offshore.
Port Pirie proudly announces itself as 'The City of Friendly People' although the first sight one has is not of people but of the huge oil tanks on the outskirts of town and the grain silos. However, overriding all is the tall chimney at the smelter. It would be easy for the traveller to feel that here was a big smelly industrial city and keep driving but this would be to miss some fascinating buildings and a genuinely beautiful and gracious main street.
