Unearth Whyalla


The annual migration of the Australian Giant Cuttlefish Sepia apama to the waters of the Upper Spencer Gulf, namely Whyalla OneSteel break waters, False Bay, Point Lowly and Fitzgerald Bay, is one of the most spectacular natural events in the Australian marine environment.

Flinders & Freycinet Lookout

Located at the intersection of Farrell and Elliott Streets, until 2002 the Flinders Lookout was a memorial to Matthew Flinders (1774-1814), Commander of HMS Investigator, who surveyed and named Spencer Gulf. The memorial was unveiled on Pioneers Day in 1950.

Maritime Museum

The Whyalla Maritime Museum is home of the former HMAS Whyalla - first ship built at the Whyalla Shipyard in 1941. It stands high and dry – 2km inland from its birthplace and 2 metres off the ground. Every year thousands of visitors enjoy actually walking under the ship before boarding it with a tour guide for a truly unique experience over the restored vessel.
