About this space

Enhance your holiday adventure with a visit to the Port Pirie Regional Tourism and Arts Centre. Not only does it serve as the official Visitor Information Centre for Port Pirie, but it's also a hub for a delightful assortment of unique attractions.

Meet Shakka the Shark! Shakka stands tall as one of Port Pirie's most legendary icons. This enormous great white pointer met an unusual fate, getting tangled in a snapper line and meeting its end in the depths of Germein Bay. Its story became woven into local folklore when it was brought ashore. Now, you can marvel at a life-sized replica of this 5.5-metre behemoth, complete with the original jaws, fin, and the captivating tale behind this magnificent creature, all on display seven days a week at the Tourism and Arts Centre.

While you're here, why not try Virtual Reality Shark Cage Diving. This interactive experience simulates a shark cage dive and is not for the faint hearted.

Or immerse yourself in a captivating underwater paradise as you join a team of researchers and scientists exploring the depths during feeding time at Cocos Shark Island.

Thrill seekers must be 12 years and above to take part in this experience (as per manufacturers guidelines) and must also complete a VR consent form on the day.

Please note the VR takes 15 minutes to complete, our capacity for the VR is two people at one time.
