Outside the Gates Tours

Come along and join Port Pirie's newest attraction!

The Outside The Gates tour will take tour participants outside the gates of Nyrstar Smelter to showcase how Port Pirie's largest industry has shaped our city. This tour is a partnership between Nyrstar, Port Pirie Regional Council and Spencer Gulf Coaches and showcases sites of historical significance and local interest.

Hear amazing stories, from the children's playground built in a day, to how the Bridge to Nowhere received its quirky nickname. See the progression of homes from Port Pirie's early days through to the 'model suburb' created to attract new smelter employees. 

Tours are conducted by professional guides who are all retired employees of the smelter. Bookings can be made at the Tourism & Arts Centre.

Tours: Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 12.30pm. Duration: Approx 2 hours
