Wirrulla  South Australia

    •   Show me: a map of Wirrulla

Ninety-three kilometres south-east of Ceduna, the Eyre Highway town of Wirrulla is the service centre for the surrounding cereal-growing and grazing community.

A one-pub town, Wirrulla is ideally located as a starting point for forays into the spectacular wilderness areas of the Gawler Ranges where vast domes of volcanic rock strike a vivid colour contrast against the pure white of the regional salt lakes.

The ranges are renowned, also, for their spring displays of wildflowers including South Australia’s floral emblem, Sturt’s desert pea. Explorer Edward John Eyre, in fact, made the first recorded sighting of the pea in the ranges in 1839.

Although designated as part of the inland wheat belt, Wirrulla is only half an hour’s drive from the Streaky Bay coastal town of Haslam. Indeed the 35km detour to Streaky Bay presents a vastly more interesting and attractive route for travellers heading west to Ceduna than the direct drive through wheat country.
