What's Happening in Wallaroo


The purpose of this website is to provide a single source of all the information which may be required by a visitor, tourist, holidaymaker, or potential resident, in deciding whether to visit Wallaroo. It may also  prove useful to existing residents in reminding them of what is available to them.

Wallaroo is a historic town on Wallaroo Bay on the East coast of Spencer Gulf. An easy 90 minute drive from the outskirts of Adelaide.

Known to many as South Australia's most popular seaside resort, Wallaroo also has a long history, as it was once the second busiest port in South Australia, due mainly to its mining and smelting activities. Many of the historic buildings of that time are still preserved.

The population increases enormously at holiday times and, there is plenty of accommodation to suit all tastes and incomes, ranging from cheap accommodation, throught caravan parks to luxury apartments and holiday rental properties.

People come for the boating, fishing, beaches, walks, and all the things that make  a seaside resort, but also the history and association with the past. And don't forget the sunsets!  Wallaroo frequently turns on quite a display. Roll your mouse pointer over the picture of the lighthouse for an example.

All the needs of the holiday maker can be satisfied by Wallaroo's shops, hotels, and restaurants. Groceries are readily available for those who want to cook for themselves, but there are also takeaway meals and restaurant meals available for those who want them.
