About Us

Located on Eyre Peninsula’s Spencer Gulf in South Australia, Whyalla is one of the largest regional cities within South Australia and offers a relaxed lifestyle where the outback meets the sea. Whyalla is home to approximately 23,000 people and has a well-established industry and retail base. The area offers compelling benefits based on location, lifestyle, Mediterranean climate, picturesque coastal shores and vivid scenery providing residents with small city charm. It is an attractive destination with good amenities, events and activities and a strong community spirit for families to call home.

Whyalla represents huge growth potential courtesy of the unique contrast of nature-based and industrial attractions, set against coastal and outback environments. The City is undergoing a major resurgence following the purchase of the ex Arrium Steelworks by GFG Alliance who are committed to investing in Whyalla.

Whyalla City Council manages and maintains Childcare services, Library, Airport, Resource Recovery Centre, Cemetery, Crematorium, Infrastructure and recreational facilities including the Visitor Information Centre.

Whyalla City Council is open for business! We welcome the opportunity to work with people who can play a role developing South Australia’s next Regional Smart City.
