Minnipa SA


Postcode: 5654

Minnipa is a small town serving the local grain growing community located on South Australia’s Eyre Peninsula. Within the town are a number of grain silos that serve to store the local wheat crop. Adjacent to the silos is a railway siding which serves to distribute crops to Port Lincoln for on-shipment to ports around the world. Another use for these silos is to store local farmer’s grain for their own use.

The town has a rich rural life, boasting several churches a general store, roadhouse, caravan park, pub, butcher and other industry based companies. The town’s rich sporting tradition includes swimming Australian Rules football, Tennis and Netball. Table Tennis is also a favorite during the winter months.

The town is well placed, within an hour or two’s drive from the west coast of Eyre Peninsula but still close enough for a day trip to the Gawler Ranges.
