Commanding uninterrupted views of beautiful Spencer Gulf, Discovery Holiday Parks – Whyalla Foreshore provides the perfect base to discover the city ‘Where the Outback meets the Sea’.
Averaging 300 days of sunshine per year, the caravan park is close to family-friendly swimming beaches, excellent fishing spots and major regional attractions, making South Australia’s third largest city a great year-round holiday destination.
Discover the seafaring past of this rugged shipwreck coast. Delve into the history of steel making, get back to nature, wander historic streets and dine on great local produce. So much to see and do.
The caravan park is ideal for families and groups with spacious lawn areas suitable for tents and caravans. Perhaps the privacy and convenience of a self-contained cabin, nestled amongst the trees, is more your style.
