The rural town of Wirrulla is an ideal spot to begin the scenic journey through the Gawler Ranges National Park (home to rare animals and amazing landforms) and north to Kingoonya and Glendambo.
Situated in Eyre Peninsula’s inland wheat belt, it is only 35 kilometres to the nearest beach at Haslam, a small town near Streaky Bay. Fishing, swimming and crabbing are never far away. Visitors to Wirrulla are advised to take a look at the town jetty, as the tide is almost always out.
Like other Eyre Highway towns, Wirrulla is primarily a service centre for the surrounding farming community, but facilities are still available in the form of a great little pub, caravan park and general store.
