We spend a day visiting all the points. We were able to see the fur seals and definitely worth walking down to the caves. Ensure you collect the $30 entry pass from the visitor centre at Port Lincoln, i assume you can also purchase at the kiosk near entry points. Must See place when visiting Lincoln.

We spent a glorious day visiting this area of the coast near Port Lincoln. A permit and payment is needed, so make sure you organise this at the Port Lincoln Information Centre so that you are able to enter. The scenery is breath-taking, so make sure that you take your camera. One thing needing attention is the toilet block, which... More

Get your $30 entry pass from the Info Centre at Port Lincoln. $10 refundable key deposit or the gate may have a family member there to pay the $30 too. It is an easy drive out on sealed n unsealed roads. The sign posts in the park are weathered and it is like it's stuck in the 1970s. But the... More

we spent a day driving around and viewing the great ocean views from all the vantage points, from seals at Cape Wiles to beaches at Redbanks Allow time to get out and walk to all the viewing locations, it is worth it

Very scenic and a lot of history. Alow half day to see all and to take photographs. Also take binoculars as there is a lot of wildlife.

It was a good day out, but be sure to allow at least 3 - 4 hours at the site for a good look around. Facilities are very poor which is very disappointing for the entry price you pay. The toilets at the beginning of the 'Way' were absolutely filthy. The cisterns didn't work and one of the doors had... More

A private park which requires an entrance fee and a key to get in, Whalers Way is a must see on a trip to Port Linciln. It was a lovely sunny day when we went, perfect weather although the flies could be thick at times. We enjoyed a picnic on a cliff feeling like the only people in the world.... More

Running out of superlatives in regards to scenery. Such a deep beautiful blue, and rock formations are great.

A great way to spend a day driving the whalers way. Some great views and beaches. Gravel roads but firm so 2wd ok . Best is when it is a little windy or swell is running so that blowholes are doing their thing. Some short walks.
