Drop anchor in historic Whyalla, the port town that’s launched a thousand ships.

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.
