City of Whyalla Path & Trail Master Plan


The City of Whyalla Path and Trail Master Plan has been developed to create a regionally, and nationally enticing trails experience within the region. Whyalla is located on the western shores of the Spencer Gulf, approximately 400km northwest of Adelaide and is the largest city in the Upper Spencer Gulf region.

The Master Plan considered the development of both existing and new trails that capitalise on the City’s natural and built environments for various walking, running, and cycling experiences. The Master Plan focused on a range of experiences which are suited for different user groups and have the potential to attract residents and visitors alike.

The development of the Master Plan has been significantly informed by consultation with key stakeholders and the community. The consultation process included a community online survey, Council workshop, community workshop and key stakeholder interviews.

A qualitative cost estimate was undertaken by specialist quantity surveying firm, Rider Levett Bucknall for all existing and proposed Council paths and trails.

To deliver Whyalla’s vision, a detailed and highly considered Strategy and Action Plan was developed.

Key outcomes of the Path & Trail Master Plan include:

  • A five year program of infrastructure delivery
  • Reference to applicable Australian Standards and Guidelines
  • Operation and maintenance plans for the path and trail infrastructure
  • Revision of existing strategies and inclusion in final document
  • Geographic Information System (GIS) mapping of all paths and trails.
