Whyalla Attractions

The Loaded Dog Statue
• 97 McDouall Stuart Ave, WHYALLA SA 5608 • Ph: 08 8645 9926 • Email
• The Loaded Dog statue based on Henry Lawson’s story is the work of world famous figurative sculptor, Andy Scott. Created in his workshop in Glasgow, Scotland, the sculptor used his unique technique of wielding thousands of tiny pieces of steel rod to create a giant steel dog. The inspiration for this statue came from ‘Arabesque’, a stunningly lifelike Arabian horse, and was created in response to the coastal erosion. The loaded dog was modelled on Tommy, the central character of Henry Lawson’s short story of the same name.

The Loaded Dog ‘Tommy’ is in the garden at the front of the Whyalla Veterinary Clinic.

Whyalla Pub Hotel

Bayview Hotel
• Cnr Forsyth & Farrell St, WHYALLA SA 5600 • Ph: 08 8645 8544 • Email
• Relax in a comfortable lounge chair after a hard day at the office or catch up with friends in the alfresco area, sipping one or two of our more unusual wines or your old favourite tipple.

The original hotel was built in the first half of the last century, when the 6 o’clock swirl was in full swing! Very grand in its time, with an Art Deco feel, it consisted of accommodation, a Ladies Lounge, a bar and a dining room. Over the years the hotel has seen many changes, not least the end of the 6 o’clock shutdown.

The Eureka Group have had a brand new tavern built next door to the original Art Deco building, carrying the Art Deco theme through.
