Beerenberg Visitor Centre 

 After years of planning the Paech family wanted to create a visitor unique experience for visitors and tourists. Whether it’s a good coffee you are seeking, or picking strawberries with friends or having lunch, our visitor centre has something for everyone.

Today the Visitor Experience sees 250,000 visitors per annum.

Cuttlefish Coast – Whyalla City Council 

Known as the Cuttlefish Coast & Sanctuary Tourism and Conservation Project, the vision by Whyalla City Council was to position the region as a year round destination, valued for its quality environment, recreation and lifestyle experiences.

The area is internationally renowned as only one of two areas in the world for the annual migration of Australian Giant Cuttlefish that aggregate in the area. The Whyalla Cuttlefish have become a global phenomenon, with scientists, divers and photographers documenting their mating displays and behaviours.
