Have a look at our COASTAL PLACES GUIDE!

Printed copies available at the Port Environment Centre, or at the Port Adelaide Civic Centre and the Port Adelaide Visitor Information Centre.

This guide highlights some of our cherished coastal places. We hope this guide inspires and supports you to discover and connect with our diverse natural environments and that you enjoy connecting with Port Adelaid’es nature as much as we do.

Our coastal environments and the sites shared in this guide are treasured by many. We encourage you to take time to observe, learn and tread lightly when enjoying our coastal places.

Who we are

The Port Environment Centre is a place to meet like-minded individuals and learn more about the local environment, local environmental community groups and how to live more sustainably in your own home.

Come in to talk to us about the environment or sustainable living, find a book in our community library, or recycle your unusual items in our resource recovery station run by the Port Environment Centre Waste Advisory Group (PECWAG).

A big part of what we do here at the centre are events and activities. To be kept up to date with upcoming events and opportunities sign up to our mailing list for monthly emails.

If you need a space to host an environment focused event or meeting, ask about hosting an event here.

There are so many great ways to get involved with many active local environmental community groups. We would love to help you get connected, so drop in for a chat, consider volunteering or attend one of our events.
