Wirrulla grew up around the grain silos and railhead serving the surrounding area in the grain belt on the western side of the Eyre Peninsula in South Australia. The town has about 60 residents, a hotel, a caravan park and a general store and one pub. It serves as both a supply stop on the Eyre highway between Port Lincoln and Ceduna, and a base for exploring the Gawler Ranges Wilderness Area.
Wirrulla - Attractions
- Inland Jetty - probably one of the few inland jetties on earth, where the tide is always out.
- Gawler Ranges - Wirrulla is ideally placed as a base from which to explore the Gawler Ranges wilderness area, full of massive, multicoloured volcanic domes, white salt flats and home to the Sturt's desert pea, the floral emblem of South Australia.
- Haslam Beach - just 35km from Wirrulla on Streaky Bay for swimming, fishing and crabbing.
- Lake Gairdner National Park - about 120 miles away, popular with bird-watchers and botanists after the spring rains, home to the Kokatha peoples.
