The main highways to Perth, Adelaide and Sydney pass through Port Augusta which meant that the traffic through town was constant. We headed down towards the foreshore to fill up with fuel and discovered some lovely old buildings - the area is quite pretty with wide streets and lots of shopping outlets.  

Port Augusta is situated at the head of Spencer gulf and close to the spectacular Flinders Ranges. With a population of about 14,500 it has great facilities:

  • accommodation - backpacker, camping, caravan parks, hotels and motels 
  • a selection of restaurants and cafes
  • recreational facilities
  • shopping malls
  • heritage walk 
  • Arid Land Botanic Gardens close to town
  • Yarta Purtli, a cultural centre in the CBD of Port Augusta

A major tourist attraction is the Wadlata Outback Centre (located on Flinders Terrace), which is also the Visitor Information Centre for the Port Augusta and the local area. This Centre has some amazing features to teach you about the history of the area, the Aboriginal people and the Flinders Ranges. The gift shop has a great range of Australian made gifts, a huge range of native bush foods, maps, books and general souvenirs. This is a really good starting point when planning to stay in the area.
