RM Williams Outback magazine feature article


Giant cuttlefish season isn’t too far away as interest in Whyalla and its unique breeding ground for these amazing animals continues to grow.

The latest instalment on Whyalla’s cephalopod aggregation at Stony Point, nearly Point Lowly, comes from the RM Williams Outback Magazine February-March issue with an article written by Gretel Sneath. This follows hot on the heels of a segment in Jonathan Bird’s international Blue Water program and many more national and international TV and internet film features last year.

Gretel spoke with local diver Tony Bramley with pictures courtesy of Carl Charter from Experiencing Marine Sanctuaries, the organisation that hosts cuttlefish dive experiences during Whyalla’s Cuttlefest, for the RM Williams Outback magazine article.


LIMITED COPIES: The February-March RM Williams Outback magazine.

Limited copies of the magazine are still available from Playford Avenue Newsagency, News Extra Westland Newsagency and One Stop Newsagency.

The City of Whyalla is a proud major supporter of Cuttlefest which kicked off last year with a series of dive days, information and  events to celebrate the globally unique and wild Australian giant cuttlefish aggregation.

A series of four Cuttlefest family-friendly events were made possible through a partnership between the Eyre Peninsula Natural Resources Management Board, Department for Environment and Water and Experiencing Marine Sanctuaries (EMS), with funding from the Whyalla City Council and support staff from Natural Resources Eyre Peninsula.

Cuttlefest 2019, once again proudly sponsored by the City of Whyalla, will run between June and July with two community dive sessions, some VIP dives and school dives. Details to be announced.
