About the Historical walk
Wetlands Walk explores the site of the Whyalla Wetlands. Part of this land originally incorporated the city’s first airport. Interpretive signage along the trail provides information about the city’s first airport, the city’s water management initiatives and a wealth of historical information. There are many indigenous and introduced plants to admire as you meander the pathway while listening to the local bird life.
You can walk on loops around the lake from between 900m and 2.5km depending on the route you choose.
The Wetlands Walk is one of the three trails that make up the Centenary Trailways Project. The three heritage trails, the City Walk, Education and Cultural Walk, and the Wetlands Walk, that make up the Centenary Trailways Project were developed as part of the celebration of 100 years since Whyalla was settled by Europeans.
There are footpaths and trails that link the three trails together.
The main entrance to the Whyalla Wetlands is on < ahref="https://goo.gl/maps/GM3ZZ8UijSGaoiq9A">Lincoln Highway/Broadbend Terrace.
