wilson Park

Located 600m south of the Whyalla Visitor Centre, Wilson Park provides views and a handy rest stop for travellers.

The views from Wilson Park extend over the Whyalla Steelworks and the more distant Port Bonython and Point Lowly area. Free sheltered BBQ’s and picnic facilities; ample shade and lawns; a playground; 24 hour toilets with parking for cars, coaches and caravans readily accessible.

A symbolic structure of an inverted ship’s rudder emblazoned with Whyalla’s band stands 10 metres high. The rudder was presented to the people of Whyalla in 1974 to mark the jubilee of the naming of the township of Whyalla.

Another salute to Whyalla’s shipbuilding past is located at the intersection opposite Wilson Park. A 2.5m high white Kedge anchor is proudly mounted in a landscaped garden bed. The anchor has been dated back to the 1950’s and was used by early steamships to tow themselves into new positions after berthing.
