Shipbuilding and maritime industries forged this little town on the east coast of the Eyre Peninsula and its coastline is speckled with heritage landmarks. Browse historic museums or go for a wander around the marina, where dolphins regularly meet and greet with locals. Go diving or snorkelling in the pristine waters. If you’re lucky, you might spot the spectral colours of a giant Australian cuttlefish. Walking trails, hilltop lookouts and conservation areas make Whyalla a good stop for those who like to keep their feet on dry land.
