Visitor Information


In 1981, Port Augusta's first tourist information office was established in the small reception area of the previous Homestead Park Pioneer Museum.   In 1988 the Port Augusta Visitor Information office was transferred to Port Augusta's first major tourist attraction, the Wadlata Outback Centre which is now known as  world class tourist facility that is able to provide accurate, unbiased information every time and on time in a happy, friendly welcoming manner.   

From its humble beginnings, to being the winner of six State Tourism Awards, the Port Augusta Visitor Information Centre is now recognised as a leader in the provision of Visitor Information services in South Australia.
