Border Roo : golf at the border

The tee starts at the petrol station


David played the hole of golf called Dingos Den. this morning and the amazing thing is that we have a more relaxed drive across the Nullarbor and more exercise. The lookouts are great along the way and sometimes the road is only a few hundred meters from the edge of the cliffs. It's funny to think you are driving along the very bottom edge of Australia and the cliffs go right off the edge into the sea.

We made it to border village for a hole of golf and then on through the Quarantine post where the officer comes into your vehicle and checks to see if you are carrying fruit, vegetables, honey, nuts etc over the border just in case of fruit fly. Then on to Eucla where we had a very nice meal of grilled snapper, chips and salad. We drive out to the golf course to play the Links hole and stayed out there for a while. In the evening we came back to get the card stamped and and drove down to the Eucla beach for the night.
