From the amazing marine wildlife to beautiful beaches and stunning sunsets, Whyalla has so much to offer those visiting the region. Known as the ‘steel city’ due to the massive steel works and shipbuilding heritage, Whyalla is the fourth largest city in South Australia with a population of just over 20,000 people.
The industrial and cultural history of Whyalla is accessible to visitors via several museums and public tours including the Whyalla Maritime Museum which features various displays commemorating the town’s ship building and mining history. You can also take a public tour of the Whyalla Steel Works where you can view the production of long products at this working plant.
