Whyalla, South Australia is a steel making town nestled in the picturesque desert region of what is quaintly called the "Iron Triangle".
When driving into the town, the reddish brown dust cloud that hangs over the small city, glistens with sunlight happily, joyfully, playfully watching me.
Whyalla is a progressive town with many attractions such as the world famous Whyalla Foreshore Cafe and the Westlands Shopping Centre that has a Target department store and two supermarkets.
One local institution is the Bottle and Bird Drive Through Restaurant and my favourite menu item is their "chips and gravy"
Tourists will wonder at the seven traffic lights that are located throughout Whyalla.
Also the "Steel Making" town has the only Left Hand Club in the world, with many towns people chopping off their right hands to join the club, fortunately the club changed their rules to allow right handed people to join as well.
Another world first was the Workers Club which had to shut it's doors soon after as there were too many unemployed people in the town.
Local public radio station 5YYY FM plays "stereo music", in 1986 when the radio station flicked the switch to "stereo" the locals caused a rush on the electrical stores buying the new fangled music boxes.
The listening audience increased to seven people but dropped to one when the Reverend "That Music is The Devils Music" Nobby McNuts preached from the pulpit about the evils of music.
Further attractions include the Royal Whyalla Showgrounds which holds its local fete every year. So loyal readers if you like what you read about Whyalla, plan your travel arrangements now, and take a holiday in the quaint town of Whyalla.
