Whyalla

Saturday 1st March 2008, Whyalla.

We are now about 50k from where we were yesterday, the other side of the Spencer Gulf, but in fact it took us about 250k to get there. We are now at Whyalla, see map, and will only be here for a couple of days. We have been here before, on a day trip from Port Augusta, so we don’t intend looking around much. We only decided to stop here to shorten the trip to Cowell, which will probably be the next stop. There is a ferry that crosses the gulf from Wallaroo, just south of Port Broughton, to Cowell, but it would have cost in the vicinity of $400.00 to take the van on it. It only cost us about $45.00 to drive around so I don’t think there was much of an option.
