Snakes and lizards are a highly valued part of healthy native ecosystems. Port Augusta is home to a number of species of snakes and lizards. While some snake species are highly venomous, they are unlikely to attack you. However, never try and approach a snake for a closer look, and control the curiosity of your pets, to ensure we can all live safely together.

Council officers are only authorised to remove snakes from Council owned properties and within a public place. Council officers do not remove snakes from private property.

If you have a snake that needs to be removed from your property, please contact
