Steel city positioned between Spencer Gulf and the desert on Eyre Peninsula
It is hard to get excited about Whyalla. It is a steel city. Port Kembla or Newcastle on the Spencer Gulf. A large sad sort of place reddened, like a bruised eye, by the powdery iron ore which is blown over the city from the steelworks.
Located 76 km south of Port Augusta and 388 km from Adelaide, Whyalla is one of the three major centres on the Eyre Peninsula and, like Ceduna and Port Lincoln, it is driven by the local steel and petroleum industries. It is also the largest provincial city in South Australia.
