Are there currently restrictions on travel to Whyalla related to COVID-19?

Before you book or search for flights, consider the following restrictions: Australia has restricted the entry of all travelers, with the exception of Australian nationals and permanent residents and their immediate family members, New Zealand nationals residing in Australia, diplomats accredited to Australia and residing in Australia and their immediate family members, and airline crew. Travelers who are not Australian citizens and returning permanent residents and their immediate family members need to apply for an exemption to enter Australia. Australia has enacted temporary travel restrictions for flights to Melbourne and Sydney due to a recent increase in COVID-19 cases: Through July 14, International flights to Melbourne are being diverted to other Australian airports. Through July 17, the number of international passengers arriving to Sydney has been limited to 450 per day, and each flight is limited to 50 people.

Transit passengers don’t need to apply for an exemption to travel restrictions if they are booked to depart on a connecting flight from the same airport within eight hours and they are not going to leave the airport. Travelers who plan to leave the airport before boarding their connecting flight or who will be at the airport for longer than eight hours need to apply for a travel exemption here and will be subject to quarantine until their departing flight. Travelers from New Zealand and Pacific Islanders may not need a travel exemption. More information on transiting Australia is available here. Travelers planning to travel across Australian state borders should note that some Australian states also have domestic travel restrictions, border restrictions, and quarantine requirements in place. In the case of onward travel within Australia, travelers are advised to check in advance with their travel/accommodation provider.. If you are looking to book a trip to Whyalla and are outside of the restricted areas, please take the proper precautions and stay informed about traveling during COVID-19.

Located on South Australia’s Eyre Peninsula, Whyalla is a beautifully situated beach resort which also offers historical attractions and natural appeal.

For a long time, the city was one of Australia’s major industrial centers, producing much of the steel which built the modern nation. Nowadays, the industry may have gone, but visitors can still take fascinating steelworks tours that provide a unique window into Australian history.

Nowadays, Whyalla has exchanged industry for recreation, and provides opportunities to enjoy a huge range of outdoor activities. The town’s three beaches offer a mixture of safe swimming, surf and boating activities, and charter boats can be booked at the town jetty that will allow visitors to sample some of the south coast’s finest snapper fishing grounds.

There are also plenty of beautiful sites to visit near Whyalla. Cycle or hike out to Hummock Hill. Lookout for gorgeous views across the bay, take a kayaking tour to Point Lowly (and try some spear fishing) or head out on night mountain bike rides with expert guides.

There are also some superb museums to enjoy. Head to the town museum and tour HMS Whyalla, the first warship to be built solely in Australia, or visit the Mount Laura Homestead to see what life was like on a sheep station in early 20th century South Australia.

The town also hosts events throughout the year, such as the popular Fishy Fringe Festival held in April, which brings amusements, theater performances and live music. The town is also host to international fishing competitions, so serious anglers will be in their element.

Getting around Whyalla

Getting from downtown to the beaches and the main shopping district can be done by the Whyalla bus system, but for more outlying destinations a car is recommended. Buses regularly leave for Adelaide (50 minutes journey time) and many of the city attractions such as the beaches, marine and Hummock Hill are within walking distance. With flat land and little traffic, cycling may actually be the best option, so why not investigate cycle rental?
