Whats New Whyalla?

4 Comments

The last stop on our Eyre Peninsula road trip was the town of Whyalla. In the past, my impression of Whyalla was one of a hot dry and dusty town, where all you noticed was the massive steelworks that the town revolves around.

The steelworks still is the biggest industry in town but there is more going for Whyalla than in the past including some terrific art, a beautiful foreshore and beach area and one amazing jetty.

Tumby Bay ~ So Nice, We Visited Twice

6 Comments

On our tour around Eyre Peninsula we took a detour to make sure we didn’t miss illuminate Tumby, before resuming our itinerary back on the other side of the peninsula’s coast.

Tumby Bay had so much going for it that we were definitely stopping in again on our way back, to see more of what this town has to offer. The best place to start, is with the drive into town, making sure you pull in to the parking area near the town’s painted silos.

Illuminate Tumby Bay

3 Comments

If there is one town for art fans to head to on Eyre Peninsula, it has to be Tumby Bay.
In March of every year, since 2018, they hold the Colour Tumby Festival, where street artists decorate and liven up spaces around town, turning them from bare walls into bright works of art.

Tumby has been on my radar for years to visit for this purpose and to make it extra special, this year the town also participated in Illuminate Tumby, part of the illuminate Adelaide festival.

There’s a bright and brilliant new mural to look for in Goolwa when you’re next visiting the Fleurieu Peninsula. As you drive into town on Alexandrina Road you’ll find Kessell Street on the right and the Ibis Siding Garden Centre on the corner. Turning into Kessell Street, the eye catching mural featuring a blue wren, bees and flowers, fills the wall of the garden centre.

Goolwa is an easy day trip destination and has so much for families to enjoy including this spot to add to your list for those who enjoy skateboarding, scooter or bike activities, and colourful art.
