The Port Augusta Lions Club is involved in a wide variety of projects, activities and events.


Mitre 10 Saturday BBQ

Feeling peckish on Saturday morning? Why not head to Mitre 10 Woodcock Street, Port Augusta for the Lions BBQ, we are there every second Saturday (unless its really hot) selling bacon and eggs rolls and our delicious sausages. All proceeds to various charities. We’ll even put the onions on top (not like Bunnings!) 

Pichi Richi Marathon

Pichi Richi Marathon

For nearly 4 Decades, the Pichi Richi Marathon has been a family fun tradition for people of all ages. Participants love getting out in the community, mixing, mingling, keeping fit and supporting charity at the same time! 

The Port Augusta Lions Club has been involved for several years with organisation and logistics for the event with assistance from the Flinders Ranges Council. 

The event now is credited with the Association of International Marathon & Distance Races – AIMS.

The 2024 event will be held on Sunday 30th June so, dust of your runners and get training! 

Diabetes Awareness

Lions Clubs all over the world organise Strides events in their communities to heighten awareness of diabetes and its complications, and to provide information on preventing, and managing, the disease. 

These events promote regular, healthy exercise, and include participants of all ages.

Our Club was the first in our district to conduct a Strides walk, and continues to support this very important initiative.

Australia Day Breakfast

Since 2020 the Port Augusta Lions Club has hosted the Australia Day Breakfast. Providing a free bacon and eggs breakfast with assistance from the Port Augusta Apex Club, Rotary Club and the SES. Always a great morning with the new citizenship ceremony, raising of the flag and cutting of the cake. 2021 saw the inaugural ‘Port Augusta Championship Thong Toss’ which was great fun for the kids and adults alike. Hope to see you all on Australia Day!

New Toilets At Lions Park!

The Port Augusta Lions Park is used by many travelling visitors and local users daily.

We continue to upgrade the park and recently installed new toilet facilities thanks to the Port Augusta City Council, major sponsors and our fund raising efforts. The new modern facilities include 2 unisex cubicles, disable access and baby changing facilities plus a colourful mural depicting native plants and birds. Landscaping will be completed in coming months to celebrate local culture and history.  

This has been in addition of aluminium benches are more sturdier and will give years of service.

Also, next time you visit Lions Park check out our native garden established to commemorate 75 years of Lions in Australia.
