While travelling in the Port Augusta region consider visiting the Flinders Ranges in South Australia, Australia. Beautiful and stunning scenery.
Port Augusta has many interesting attractions including the Arid Lands Botanical Gardens, which is a must see. Entrance to the gardens is free. Coffee and meals are great. Port Augusta has full medical facilities and shopping supermarkets. Do something different and stay at Catninga station for a full experience of wonderful accommodation and a taste of the Flinders Ranges. The 4x4 scenic tour into the rugged ranges just behind the homestead is really rewarding with stunning views over the mountains and the Spencer Gulf. It is a dry weather 4x4 tour only as tracks are impassable in wet weather. Warm hosts with local knowledge.
Explore the outer coast of Pohatu Marine Reserve and marvel at its spectacular towering cliffs, rock stacks, reefs, and deep sea caves. Observe the diverse wildlife and marine species such as penguins, seals, various sea birds and possibly the world’s smallest dolphin!
