Stand at the Southernmost part of the Eyre Peninsula and look out over the Southern Ocean! This drive has parking spots at some of the natural highlights which are worth a visit on foot. At the far end is the spectacular Theakstone Crevasse, both dangerous and fascinating.

A visit to Whalers Way will certainly not disappoint from the perspective of the magnificence of the views and the spectacular coastline. It certainly is an amazingly wild piece of coastline with pristine beaches, steep cliffs and turbulent seas. However, it is relatively expensive at $30 and the roads and facilities are a bit "rough and ready". Whilst a normal... More

12 Years ago I came here first and we went back here recently and it was just how I remembered. What a stunning coastline, nothing like NSW, VIC or QLD ( which are amazing too in a different way ) I could spend a whole week here, laying on the beach, crystal clear water, white sand, blue skies, rocky cliffs,...

Having grown up in this region it is always nice to go back. Years ago you could just drive there but now a key is needed. You need to head into the Port Lincoln Visitors Information Centre to purchase the key for around $30. It is well worth it. Make sure you go fully packed up for a day out... More

We loved our visit here. The main access roads are dirt/sand in generally good condition, some of the access tracks and car park areas are quite rough and rocky and we were glad to have an SUV for these. There are a lot of different sites to see, we spent a few hours and still didn't see every single one.... More

Some areas can be accessed without having to go through the area where you have to pay and the scenery is awesome and the sight of Emus running over the sand dunes was great

We were uncertain at first... We had a key for an old gate! We did enjoy our 3 hour driving along the tracks that gave access to spectacular cliffs, caves and coastline. Signage is getting worn by the elements...
