A private park which requires an entrance fee and a key to get in, Whalers Way is a must see on a trip to Port Linciln. It was a lovely sunny day when we went, perfect weather although the flies could be thick at times. We enjoyed a picnic on a cliff feeling like the only people in the world.... More

Running out of superlatives in regards to scenery. Such a deep beautiful blue, and rock formations are great.

A great way to spend a day driving the whalers way. Some great views and beaches. Gravel roads but firm so 2wd ok . Best is when it is a little windy or swell is running so that blowholes are doing their thing. Some short walks.

This was the third time I have visited Whalers Way and I seem to see much more each time I go. I really enjoy how close and how far you can get to the sites. In a national park all sites are governed on how close you can view the them, where as at whalers way you need to do... More

The fee to get in is $30 plus $10 key deposit so pricey. This park was built in 1971 and never touched again! The roads are rough. Views are amazing but extremely dangerous to get to some. Toilets and picnic area are unusable so we had to eat in the car. There is rubbish everywhere so bins are never emptied.... More

A must see if you are staying Port Lincoln way. Seriously scary seeing sights from the top of cliffs.... Privately owned property, so you need to pay for a key from Info centre

We did the whalers way on a pretty windy day with occasional showers so it wasn't the best day to go. The scenery was amazing but we found that on the cliff edges you had to use extreme caution as a few weren't railed off very well and you could see the erosion has been taking its toll on the...

The opportunity to see Whalers Way should not be missed. The rugged scenery, flora and fauna is beautiful. We picked up a key from the local tourist bureau along with a map and a few tips from the local girl. She was spot on when she said allow for three to four hours to see everything and we would have... More

We spent hours and hours exploring the tip of the Eyre Peninsula. Amazing views, reasonably good dirt road,bit rough in places, but not horrific. The signage needs updating as some sign are hard to read, bit weather beaten.

The coastline views are breathtaking. The surf was booming in, but too far below the cliffs to get to.
