The Nullarbor Journey

The Nullarbor is one of Australia’s great road journeys. It is an adventure in itself. From unique flora and fauna, blowholes blowing cool air up from the depths of the extensive cave system under the Nullarbor, opportunities to view the majestic Southern Right Whales as they migrate along the Bight to calve, lookouts over the impressive Bunda Cliffs, remnants of long past telegraph stations being reclaimed by the sand to interesting displays on the early days of this inhospitable place including the camel trains and pieces of the famous ‘skylab’, the Nullarbor has it all for those willing and eager to delve a little deeper into this fascinating journey. 907 more words

Crossing the Nullarbor

Turns out crossing the Nullarbor isn’t as scary as people would have you believe. Before we left we were given lots of advice (don’t stop for anyone, watch out for all the kangaroos, carry plenty of water) and some horror stories to replay in our heads again and again as we pitched our tents in free camps on the side of the road. 70 more words


Barber Shop Photos 13 - Nullarbor

Road trips can be an epic undertaking in Australia and one of the largest I attempted was moving from Brisbane to Perth. I decided to make a quick crossing as my brother took time off to accompany me. 100 more words



Vendredi matin nous quittons Espérance, nous faisons 200km en remontant vers le nord et arrivons à Norseman, petite ville fantôme digne d’un far-west. Nous trouvons quand même un IGA (supérette australienne) pour nous prendre un petit gouter sucrer et faire le plein en tabac. 585 more words
