Jim Pollock Whyalla Wetlands


An ideal picnic area with barbeques, a nature playground, toilet facilities and shelter for any weather; a perfect spot for time out with the family.
You will be captivated as you stroll along the extensive pedestrian paths around the lakes pausing to take advantage of the interpretive signage, park benches, bridge and the gazebo atop the central hill.
There are seven hectares of artificial lakes which are home to many species of aquatic plants, animals and birds. Birdlife which is not usually seen in Whyalla is being attracted with many species now breeding and raising their young there. Jim Pollock Whyalla Wetlands walk is part of Whyalla Heritage Trail ways, and as such interpretive signs are interspersed throughout the wetlands.
In keeping with the innovative theme, there are environmentally friendly hybrid toilets which include baby changing facilities and disabled access wheelchair ramps all the way to the toilets.
