Whyalla Foreshore and Marina



You’ll soon discover why the foreshore is one of the city’s most loved attraction…
Along with its safe swimming beach, there are; changing rooms and toilet, a lifesaving and rescue facility, extensive lawns, free electronic barbeques and large popular playground area with shade and a café to relax and have something to eat and drink.
The waters are somewhat shallow which gives you the rare opportunity to walk to the ‘blue line’ in search of a feed of fresh crab. Land-based anglers will benefit from a new fishing jetty replacing the original built 1970s to provide an ideal place to catch tommy ruff, garfish, Whyalla’s famous ‘big red’ snapper and many other species.
There is also a swimming enclosure in the deeper waters of the marina where you can submerge yourself on those long hot days in summer. You are more than likely to spot some of our local, friendly dolphins leading and following craft right back to the ramp. So, keep your eyes open for one of their playful appearances.
