Port Augusta

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. The Wadlata Outback Centre and the Australian Arid Lands Outback Garden are here, and provide a fascinating insight into outback South Australia.

Port Augusta is a great base for easy access to the attractions of the Flinders Ranges, Eyre Peninsula and Outback.

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
