Port Augusta is known as the crossroads of Australia – where roads from Adelaide, the Flinders Ranges, Alice Springs, Perth and Whyalla all intersect.
This friendly city sits at the head of Spencer Gulf and is an excellent holiday destination with a number of world class attractions, a wide range of water activities, a relaxing foreshore including playground and barbecue areas, and extensive shopping facilities.
Port Augusta is home to the Wadlata Outback Centre which is a must see for all visitors travelling to the Flinders Ranges and Outback. Walk through the Outback’s “Tunnel of Time”, an interpretive, interactive, three dimentional display that provide a fun learning experience for the whole family. This will give you a better understanding of the Flinders Ranges and Outback. You’ll also find out about other places to visit and things you can see and do.
The Australian Arid Lands Botanic Gardens are just outside of Port Augusta, and provide a fascinating insight into the Outback’s plant and bird life.
Port Augusta is a great base for easy access to the attractions of the Flinders Ranges, Eyre Peninsula and Outback.
