The Port Environment Centre is a community driven organisation and 'gathering place' that supports the community in living sustainably, valuing, caring for, learning about and enjoying the experience of the natural coastal, marine and estuarine environment.

Thank you to everyone who completed our survey.

This community survey will form the basis for developing a project designed specifically to help people who work and live in the Port Adelaide Area to feel better connected with their local environment and the local community.

The survey closed COB Tuesday 20 April 2021 and the results are currently being reviewed.

A raffle was drawn 12 pm Wednesday 21 April 2021 for people who had completed the Survey^. The winner of the raffle was Amber, who has been advised and can collect her prize from the centre.

*This is a partnership project with the City of Port Adelaide Enfield.

UPDATE: January 2021 – The Port Environment Centre is now open Sundays.

Drop in and say hello. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday 10 am – 3 pm; 

Second Sunday of the Month 10 am – 2 pm.

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.
