Well worth the trip. Make sure you have a 4wd as the roads can be a bit rough. Follow the map and make sure to get out and enjoy the treks on foot. Be sure to have room on your camera!

Relaxing day and some exercise with the short walks to some amazing views our boys aged 10 and twins 8 loved the experience. Don't recommend using the BBQ facilities provided - take your own BBQ or packed lunch and allow a good 4-5 hours if doing all walks/stops

It has been 10 years since the last time I transversed this spectacular rugged piece of country. It was a cold wet day this time. As such there were huge waves pounding and the wind was fierce. Despite this, it did not diminish the enjoyment. The road is rough and there are warnings to stay away from the edge as... More

Glorious natural scenery that is wild and accessible. A fun couple of hours driving around the sites that offer spectacular views of the ocean, with white sandy beaches and dangerous rocks and bluffs. Seals were around, though at quite a distance. Please note, the road is unsealed so take care with your car if it isn't a SUV!

After paying and getting key from the Tourist Information Centre in Port Lincoln we headed off. Once going in through the gate our first stop was upon us. Great views of the beach and the surrounding Cliffs. Off to the Swimming hole and a spectacular view once a gain. The map provided to us when we picked up our key... More

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
