May 10, 2014 - Great Australian Bight to Caiguna Blowholes

After a very cold night, we left out free camp at the Bight quite early. Along the way we called into the 3 signposted Cliff lookouts and all of the Roadhouses, as Steph has decided to write down the fuel prices of each as we go over the Nullarbor. We also drive through a few free camps just check them out. Steph is driving a bit again today. We are not finding this section boring as there seems to be a good flow of traffic, and we have been surprised about how green the Nullarbor is. They have had a reasonable amount of rain since we last...

Sep 17, 2011 - Nullarbor Plain

Und das Tom Tom sagt: " folgen sie dem Strassenverlauf fuer 1295 km" Eine Farht durch Australiens Wuesste, stundenlagnges Nichts :) An einer Raststaedte wurde ich dann gebeten ein Packet mit ins naechste Kaff zu nehmen, welches 500km weit weg ist. In Borde Village (so heisst das wirklich) habe ich dann das Paeckchen (Druckerpatronen)dem Chef ueberreicht. Der hat sich so gefreut, denn er wartet da schon ewig drauf, dass er mir doch gleich ein Eis geschenkt hat. Was den stolzen preis von $6,50 gekostet haette. Toll :)
