Hummock Hill Lookout

Hummock Hill affords an unequalled view of Whyalla and the vast OneSteel operations; Whyalla Foreshore and Marina; across Spencer Gulf to the Southern Flinders Rangers and ncluding the nearby Santos plant at Port Boython and the Point Lowly Lighthouse; and westward over the city towards the iron ore rich Middleback Rangers. 

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.

 The OneSteel Whyalla Steelworks are a fully-integrated operation, starting with the mining of raw materials and ending with the distribution of finished steel products. 

Northern Coastline

 There are many areas along our northern coastline worth a visit such as Point Lowly, just a 20-minute drive from Whyalla, Port Bonython, Fitzgerald Bay, the Freycinet Trail and the environmentally unusual and historic shingle beach ridges. 

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.
