Whyalla & Point Lowly are only 50 minutes drive South of Port Augusta along the Eyre Peninsula. A great idea is to travel to Whyalla check out the visitor information centre, then visit the adjoining maritime musuem & take a walk around the HMAS Whyalla(pictured below). After that travel to Point Lowly to travel along the scenic coastal Freycinet Trail to Fitzgerald Bay. This is one of the most scenic drives around giving views of Spencer Gulf & Flinders Ranges.
Whyalla like Port Augusta is quiet often not regarded for its tourism aspect yet boasts some great attractions. Including beaches, monster Snapper, giant Cuttlefish, steelworks, views of the Flinders Range & Outback. I highly recomend taking a time to explore this area for more information visit Tourism Eyre Penninsula's website or Whyalla's website.
