Living Here

Port Pirie is a great place to live. Located just 229kms north of Adelaide on the Spencer Gulf, the ‘city of friendly people’ enjoys a relaxed lifestyle and unspoilt surroundings.

It’s close to beaches, the beautiful Flinders Ranges, and the Mount Remarkable National Park. Boating, fishing, recreational facilities, and every kind of sport imaginable are all on your doorstep.

Living here is in fact little different to living in any other regional city in Australia. It simply requires a degree of common sense. And there are certainly plenty of people who can help you with any questions you might have, or with advice and practical help: from the Visitors Centre,  Port Pirie Regional Council and, of course, the Environmental Health Centre.

The Environmental Health Centre is a community health centre that can help you with any issues about lead, as well as the realities of living in this beautiful city. If you have any questions at all, want information about blood tests or how to maintain low blood lead levels, need practical domestic advice or diet recommendations, they can be contacted on 8638 4100.

You’ll find the Port Pirie community is more inclusive and supporting than almost anywhere else.
