Self-drive idea

Take a self-guided journey to discover the stranded shingle ridges at Fitzgerald Bay. It's just a 20 minute drive to see the geological feature unique to Whyalla and it really gets you thinking about climate and the marine environment.

Just like their name suggests, these stranded shingle ridges were formed millions of years ago, when the sea levels were up to three metres higher than today and they've since become stranded high and dry, the result of Quaternary ice ages and ancient climatic events.
