Lisa is very knowledgeable in her information of Port Augusta. Whether it be the history or current developments happening around the town, Lisa knows her stuff. It was a very enjoyable couple of hours spent walking around the main shopping area of Pt Augusta.

Lisa made special arrangements to make herself available on a Saturday morning. She is superbly knowledgeable of all that is Port Augusta. She provided an entertaining two hour walk around the centre of town. Treat yourself.
