We spent a lot of our precious travelling time in South Australia and were amazed by her diversity and beauty. However, it was time to say goodbye and make our way across The Nullarbor to another State and a whole new set of adventures and places to enjoy.
Our Nullarbor experience began with a quick overnight visit to Ceduna to stock up on supplies and ensure that the car and caravan were roadworthy for the 1200 Km trek on the Eyre Highway.
For those of you who don’t know, here are some facts about the Nullarbor Plain:
Crossing the Nullarbor, for many Australians, is a quintessential experience of the Australian Outback. Travellers love to buy stickers from roadhouses on the highway that say “I have crossed the Nullarbor“!
Contrary to popular belief, the Nullarbor is densely vegetated primarily with low saltbush and bluebush scrub. There are Truck Stops or Roadhouses dotted along the Eyre Highway every 100 Km’s or so there are some signs of civilisation. Otherwise we saw a lot Emus, Black Crows, Lizards and a lot of dead Kangaroos on the roadside.
Make sure you pack your favourite golf club and putter and play the ‘world’s longest golf course’ across the Nullarbor. Imagine teeing off in Ceduna, South Australia, and tallying your score card 1365 Km’s away in Kalgoorlie, Western Australia, on outback-style natural terrain fairways? Each participating town or roadhouse along the Eyre Highway hosts a hole on the 18-hole par 72 gold course.
The Nullarbor was a travel experience like no other. Each day brought forth her magic, with timeless landscapes of forests, grasslands, tablelands, rugged coastline, Australian wildlife and snow white dunes. I was enthralled with her beauty.
