6 mins to The Smelters Tour

6 mins to the Producers Market held on the 2nd Sunday of each month.

1 hour to Melrose and Mount Remarkable

30 mins to Port Germein, with it's historic jetty built in 1881 with a length of 1676 metres. There is also a great Art Gallery.

Just over an hours drive to Port Augusta with the Wadlata Outback Centre, and more.

ENJOY PORT PIRIE AND SURROUNDS AND COME BACK HOME TO THE WET LIZARD.

The weather here is something else again. It is sort of sub-tropical (the palm trees love it) with occasional breezes with a hint of the outback.

The Wet Lizard is a modernised home which formed part of the original farm house of the Williams family. As the town grew the farm land was developed into what is now an inner area of the Port Pirie township.

Please note: We have made the Tidal Ponds as safe as we can, however, adult supervision of children is always required around water.

If partly relet then the amount paid will be proportionately refunded less the $100 admin fee. If you need to cancel please let us know as soon as possible. The more time we have, the better chance of reletting.Payments made through Stayz online bookings are subject to Stayz cancellation policy.

Great property

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay and property was great. Ple nty of room to move and ccomfortable. Getting in the locked gate at night was bit of a hassle, think you need more light on actual key pad as it was hard to see especially when it was raining at the time as well.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review Chris. It's appreciated. We didn't realise the light at the gate wasn't working. We'll get straight onto it.

Very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the Wet Lizard for four nights with three elderly relatives. Apart from some slight difficulty getting up three steps by the back gate, the house was ideal for them. It was very clean and comfortable, the bedding fresh and new, the shower easy to use, and the kitchen very thoughtfully equipped with everything we needed. The water feature is lovely--no sign of a lizard though!

The Wet Lizard is a lovely home to stay in. Features throughout the house are a delight. Would recommend as the place to stay in Port Pirie and we really enjoyed the outside area.

Good little place

  • 3 of 5

We did enjoy our stay lovely outdoor area. Just very noisy floor boards with a toddler causing restless sleep. Be careful with chairs in dining backs fell out numerous times on us. Overall nice place only 10-15min walk to shops.

Owner's Response: We are sorry your stay was not as enjoyable as it should have been. We were unaware of the problem with the dining chairs and have replaced them with new "solid back" ones. We hope your toddler has recovered from his restless night, and we hope you consider staying with us again.
