What exactly is our brand? Quite simply it's our reputation. It's what springs to mind when people hear the name Port Augusta. It's also those things that make our city special, that make us different from any other place. So in what way is Port Augusta different? We did some market research to find out.
We found that our location is the number one factor that defines Port Augusta and makes our city truly unique - our traditional role as a meeting place and crossroads at the very top of Spencer Gulf, our proximity to Australia's iconic Outback and Flinders Ranges, our proximity to the mining boom in South Australia's north, and of course our spectacular desert-by-the-sea landscape bathed in glorious reds, blues and yellows.
These are the things that make Port Augusta unique. They are also things that can be marketed to attract more tourists, more business, more investment and more sporting and cultural events to our city.
Our challenge then is to make sure that people associate the Port Augusta name with the benefits of our unique location, with the things that make our city special. And how do we do that? By promoting the good stuff as much as we can in conjunction with a strong and memorable Port Augusta brand identity. And that's what these guidelines are about. They will help us to promote our city clearly and consistently as 'one voice' and to ensure that our promotional messages are seen, understood and remembered.
