Stirling North is a small town located 7km east of Port Augusta in South Australia. It acts primarily as a satellite town to Port Augusta with the town’s railway station lying at a major rail junction linking the Port Augusta power station and the main east-west rail link to the coal rail link to Leigh Creek. It also lies on the junction of the Eyre Highway and Port Wakefield Roads.
Stirling North is not normally a tourist destination, but is commonly used as a service stop by travellers who don’t want to travel the extra 7km into Port Augusta. The town is situated at the base of the Southern Flinders Ranges, and is often used by people travelling north.
The town has a number of services including accommodation in the form of hotels, a public bar, a number of food shops, fuel outlets, a post office and public telephone.
Only two sporting venues are present in the town, a tennis court and a golf course.
