Port Pirie  South Australia

Port Pirie, South Australia’s first provincial city, is also an important interstate and international seaport. Millions of dollars worth of grain and lead, zinc and silver produced in Broken Hill Associated’s huge smelters cross the wharves each year.

Originally known by the Aboriginal name of Tarparrie, the naming rights finally went to the work horse of the state’s sailing fleet, the schooner John Pirie. A replica of the ‘handy and roomy little craft’ is on display in the Port Pirie Corporation office.

The only memorial dedicated to the Australian veterans who fought in wars in Korea, Malaya, Borneo and Vietnam is located in Memorial Park. There is a wealth of history locked into the city and its buildings and one of the standout structures is Cairn Brae - built in the early 20th century for the Moyles family, founders of a state soft-drink empire.
