Port Pirie Regional Tourism And Arts Centre

From $1

Visit the Port Pirie Regional Tourism and Arts Centre, formerly the Port Pirie Railway Station and redeveloped to reflect Port Pirie's heritage, with architectural features and artworks interpreting the city's industrial, maritime, transport and agricultural history. Get up close to the 'Longest White Pointer Shark Landed in South Australia'. Take a miniature railway trip on the Pirie Rail Express, with two locomotives, the steam engine 'Elizabeth' and a diesel engine 'Lady Pirie' that travels a 1.7 kilometre trip. Don't miss taking an 'Outside The Gates' guided town tour, where the guides will tell quirky stories of local history while showcasing how the largest primary lead smelter in the world shaped this regional centre. And taste the flavours of local food produce and grab a few mementos. Visit the Port Pirie Library, Internet Centre, and Regional Art Gallery - all part of a thriving cultural precinct. It's just a sample of what you can experience in Port Pirie, 'the Friendly City'. Bookings for all of the above can be made at the Tourism Centre - enquire direct for pricing.
