What a beautiful part of South Australia, loved the rugged coastline, crystal clear water and white sandy beaches. Dirt road which is relatively good.

Plan to take a picnic lunch, comfortable walking shoes and plenty to drink, a camera is also a must. We spent the whole day just absorbing the sights and tranquility.

I grew up being able to drive thru this park without a gate any time of the year . When the local family built it into a attraction and named it Whalers Way the tracks and viewing areas got upgrades . Also we all learnt some more of the history of the area.

Driving through the maze of sand dunes is already an adventure in itself. But once you get to the beach of your destination, it is such a breathtaker. The waves are crashing against the shore, the wind is blowing and you can just stand there in awe. Certainly a spectacular coastline worth exploring!

At $30 per car this is a tad expensive when there are only two in the vehicle but we did see the fur seals in their natural habitat. Roads are a bit rough in places but by and large they are accessible to most cars.

We didn't explore enough to review but the Oyster Bay beach is a must to visit. Beautifully white pristine sand with crystal clear water

A nice scenic drive along the west coast of the Eyre Peninsular. Takes about an hour. Roads whilst being dirt in some places are in general good condition

If you love rugged coastlines, spectacular scenery. And just nature at its best, this is a must see. Take care around the cliff edges and stay in the marked areas. The blowhole is awesome on days when the sea is rough. Love this area

This privately owned scenic and historic area is a very worthwhile day trip from Port Lincoln. The cliff top views were spectacular, with many places to sit and rest, enjoying a cuppa and nature's wonders. The map provided with the entry fee ($13 per car) is a good guide to the area. Unfortunately the private owner does not maintain the... More
