Australia Whyalla white lighthouse on a headland overlooking the coast

Originally named Hummocks Hill, Whyalla is known as Australia’s “steel city” due to its steelwork and shipbuilding heritage. Whyalla has much more to offer than just industry though — the town is surrounded by beautiful beaches and dramatic outback scenery. With picturesque coastal walks, fishing aplenty and multiple beaches to lounge on, this gateway town to the Eyre Peninsula is well worth a few days of your time.
