The north facing entry into Whyalla marina is not easy to see coming from the south, but as you head to the first big N/S shipping wharf, the opening becomes clear.


The industrial nature of the town should be noted for intending cruisers. Shower and toilet facilities are available at the yacht club. It is a brisk 20 minute walk in to town which is a major shopping area. Red dust has to be hosed from the pontoons to keep the boats clean. In a northerly the iron ore dust comes across the town and marina.
