It is the first year that the Port Pirie Australia Day Committee has decided to cancel Australia Day celebrations.

Chairperson Trish Cable said, "we made the decision for the safety of people in our community of Port Pirie, we can not go on and have more cases of COVID in Port Pirie because of the event," "we are very concerned that our traditional celebrations could become a super spreader event."

Port Pirie Australia Day Committee secretary Ellei Bone wants the community to know that Australia day as a whole is not cancelled, and you can still celebrate in a COVID safe manner.
