Crossing the mighty Nullarbor is quite an experience. Vast, forbidding and raw, the land of ‘no trees’ is home to a plethora of limestone caves, soaring sea cliffs, and red sand desert... interspersed with indigenous and pioneering history.
The drive between Ceduna on South Australia’s Eyre Peninsula and Norseman in Western Australia is around 13 hours, a distance of 1,200 kilometres, so we’ll have a few stops along the way. We’ll drive the world’s longest straight bit of road, known as the 90 Mile Straight, 146.6 km between Caiguna and Balladonia. We are likely to meet a veritable host of characters. From the feral camels, kangaroos and wombats who call this desert home to the sunburnt holidaymakers, truckies, and adventure-seeking tourists on bikes, there’ll be a smorgasbord of people watching on our journey. One thing is certain; we will surely be mesmerised by a thousand shimmering mirages. We’ll also be able to watch whales and their calves frolic in the protected bays of the spectacular Great Australian Bight.
Once we reach the southern tip of Western Australia, the landscape changes. The Southwestern corner of Western Australia is a pocket of lush green forests, farmland, rivers and a rugged coastline contrasting the stark landscapes of the rest of the state. Fertile soils provide foodies with the best fresh produce and world-class wineries, while its waters are rich with marine life. A fascinating colonial history weaves its way through the charming towns along our route, and this part of the itinerary has several fabulous scenic drives. Our tour ends in friendly Fremantle.
