Port Germein

Port Germein is a small coastal residential village located on Spencer Gulf about 23 km north of Port Pirie. The town has a population of 279 and is home to the longest original wooden jetty in the southern hemisphere. The jetty was built in the late 1800’s to handle the movement of grain by ship but now the jetty serves both the resident and tourist who enjoy the 1532 metre stroll to the end for enjoyment or to have fun catching blue swimmer crabs and fish. Port Germein is both a seaside ‘getaway’ for tourists and residential village for retirees and younger families taking advantage of the quiet and pleasant lifestyle. The town has a pub, general store, art gallery, junk shop, post office and a primary school.
