Half hour drive from Port Lincoln, Whalers Way offers some spectacular scenery of the Southern Ocean coast line. Privately owned the $30 entrance fee is reasonable. Takes several hours to see all of the sites and the track is quite rough in spots, regular vehicles...More

What a great drive along a spectacular part of our coastline. So many "wow" moments. We were happy to pay the 30 bucks for the privilege, (free not long ago) but were disappointed that the family trust that manages it does not seem to think...More

Took the 30km drive from Lincoln to see this place. Its ok but nothing spectacular. Dirt road to get there, nice beach on arrival but that's about it. Plenty of other places to visit before going here.

Don t forget to buy your ticket and get the key at the visitor center before leaving to this beautiful place. Allow minimum 3 hours to enjoy all the spots on the road.

Best visited in a 4WD as the roads are rather rough and unsealed. The windswept coast of the Great Southern Ocean is just amazing. We visited on a wet, windy day which showed us the fantastic fury of wind driven waves on craggy coastlines.

If you ever visit Port Lincoln, take time out, buy the pass from the Tourist Information, pack a lunch and go, check out all the wonderful sights. Unfortunately, picture is not at Whalers Way but further up the coast on The Eyre Peninsular and is...More

You can get the pass key at the little kiosk thing at the gate. However, th permit needs to be collected from the tourist info centre. If they don't have any, they will be able to advise where to get them from.
