EYRE PENINSULA ACCOMMODATION
Playford Lodge Location
Whyalla is located on the Eyre Peninsula in South Australia.
Playford Lodge was built in 1945 and is positioned in the quiet and highly desirable suburb of Whyalla Playford. Playford Lodge is ideally located Eyre Peninsula accommodation close to all the shops, hotels and attractions of Whyalla.
The local aboriginal tribes have lived in the area for approximately 40,000 years. The Whyalla area itself was visited by semi nomadic tribes of Malkaripangala people who were a subdivision of Barngarla aboriginal group culturally linked to the Lake Eyre and Lake Torrens tribes.
Whyalla boasts more than 300 days of sunshine a year and has spectacular outback landscapes, scenic views, vast coastlines and is rich in culture and heritage. Visitors travelling in South Australia to and from Port Augusta, Tumby Bay, Port Lincoln, Elliston, Streaky Bay, Ceduna and the Flinders Ranges often pass through and stay in Whyalla.
In the months of May through to September visitors to Whyalla can dive or snorkel to see the Giant Australian Cuttlefish (Sepia Apama) which migrates to the Spencer Gulf for spawning. This creature is truly amazing and highly intelligent. Do some research online and if you want to book a tour contact Whyalla Diving Adventures for details.
