Spectacular coastline scenery, but the place has a sense of being in need of a fairly serious upgrade. We went to the end of the road, wanting to find what we'd been told was a lovely beach: even though we investigated a vehicle track, which ended at a cliff, and walked up and around a couple of sandhills, we couldn't...

The quiet, the views, the history, the fantastic flora, the well kept roads, the more than adequate facilities that do not detract from the natural environment.

No warnings were given to us about the terrible driving conditions. We are in a passenger car, no 4WD or AWD and we had to skip half of the self drive tour because of the terrible, dangerous driving conditions for fear of damaging our car. Not safe for children as there is no fencing or safety precautions at all. Shame... More

Excellent coastline, great coastal erosion formations, a fantastic crevasse, lots of seals, ospreys with their nest (in an amazing location), huge waves ( fortunately no freak ones whilst we were there) and so much more. A wonderful day....

A beutiful road with fine views, caves and on the day we were there rough sea with splashing of rocks and through crevises. We explored a coulpe of Caves, found many mindblowing rockformations, whale bones and even a Schingelback Lizard. The Whalers bay with it's fantasic beach and sanddunes are nearby and is well worth a visit

Costs $30 for the permit plus $10 refundable deposit for the gate key,to,a,privately owned park, which is about 15km across. You get a map, with all the points,of interest marked on it, and can also camp in there with a permit. K Most roads are suitable for all,types of vehicles, and the coastline views are incredible. We were there all... More

This was the second time that I had visited Whalers Way. The first time was about 40 years ago. Not much has change although one of the main viewing sites had closed due to unstable cliffs. The road was rough ( we were in a Mazda Sedan) and is not the best for a family sedan car. At one stage... More

For us poor sedan drivers we have a chance to see some of the beautiful coast line just 32 kilometres from the township of Port Lincoln. Whalers way is very accessible to all types of vehicles including our magna sedan. It's a $30.00 fee and $10.00 deposit for a gate key and a map full of little stops to keep... More
