Apr 19, 2016 - Day 3

Day three camped on the 222kms road marker from the boarder. This is a treed area and well used by caravaners, plenty of room (found this site on Wicki camps). Rained again at night but a dry day. Thought we had a bad batch of fuel as would get up to cruising speed set the cruise control and would not maintain the speed. Refueled at Null arbor and got blown away. Just a head wind off the bight .Did 524kms.

RUSSANDY 2016

Mar 2, 2010 - Hit the Road Jackie, Nullarbor Style

The name ‘Nullarbor’ actually came from the botanists’ initial description of the landscape, in pioneer days. The Latin botanical term ‘Nullus-Arbor’, meaning ‘treeless plain’ was a fitting description, and the term was customised to ‘Nullarbor’ after that. We set off with a loose plan in mind, knowing that the journey would take us between 3 and 5 days, depending on the length of our stops. It was an exciting thought, what we were about to do, at least, it was to me. The epic road trip was like an adventure in itself, with its vastness and...

Oct 29, 2007 - The Great Australian Bight

TODAY WE ARE GOING TO VISIT ANOTHER STATE! WE DROVE ACCROSS THE NULLABOR NATIONAL PARK AND STOPPED AT ALL THE LOOKOUTS POSSIBLE TO SEE THE AWESOME SHEAR CLIFF FACES INTO THE OCEAN OF THE GREAT AUSSIE BIGHT. WE HAD OUR EYES PEELED FOR THE ENTIRE TIME LOOKING FOR THESE TREELESS PLAINS OF THE NULLABOR ONLY TO REALISE THAT WE WERE IN THE NATIONAL PARK AND THERE WAS ONLY A SECTION OF COMPLETELY TREELESS PLAINS. THERE UNFORUNALEY WASN'T ANY WHALES, WE WERE A FEW WEEKS LATE AND WE ENDED UP CAMPING AT THE NULLABOR ROADHOUSE WHICH WAS IN TRUE...

J.C.'S BIG ADVENTURE

Oct 30, 2006 - Nullarbor

After passing through the last two big towns, Port Augusta and Ceduna, we enter the Nullarbor Plains, a stretch of earth that, millions of years ago, was part of the ocean floor. There isn't much to see out here as we have entered the "treeless plain". Nonetheless, it is a national park, goes on for hundreds of kilometers and has similar historical significance as a combination of the Lewis and Clark trail/Route 66 in the US, Ruta 40 in Argentina or Carretara Austral in Chile. For the first time, we are on Aboriginal land, but with there...

Aug 12, 2005 - Nullabor

The big adventure! Off from Ceduna to (refill at) Nundroo roadhouse (RH). Past Yalata (aboriginal) RH (in a rather bright blue colour) Stopped to see if there were any whales visible at Head of Bight. Found the facilities excellent, the road in very well maintained and bitumen all the way. For some obscure reason there is a speed limit of 30K as you pass the (basically empty) ranger station. Good parking (and space for vans) at the Info Center. Recently completed wheelchair accessible boardwalks take you from the end of the path right to...
