Description

This country’s made for road trips, and crossing South Australia’s vast Nullarbor Plain is just about as iconic as they come. Grab your Outback hat and strap in for a 10-day Overland adventure from Perth to Adelaide. This is your chance to get up close to that famous Aussie native wildlife – kangaroos, wombats, emus, rare birds and maybe even dingo in remote natural parks, or to swim with dolphins and sea lions. Enjoy iconic bush landscapes and take in stunning coastal scenery as you head from Western to Southern Australia, through Red Gums and sand dunes, dropping by natural wonders and kicking back in character-filled Aussie pubs. Whichever way you look, this wild, nature-filled land will knock your socks off.

Day 4: The Nullarbor**
Driving’s the name of the game today (we’ve got 500 kilometres of the world’s longest stretch of straight road to cover!). Today will certainly give you a sense of the sheer size of this vast and ancient land. The name ‘Nullarbor’ is derived from the Latin for ‘No Trees’, so vegetation is one thing you shouldn’t expect to see today.
We’ll make a stop at Eucla, an old telegraph township now mostly buried beneath sand dunes, then call in for a night’s camping at Koonalda Homestead in the Nullarbor National Park. This unique camp site was originally a sheep shearing station and fuel and rest stop for people travelling along the Nullarbor in the 1950s. Abandoned in the 1970’s the site became somewhat of a car graveyard with old cars left behind, broken down on the Nullarbor Plain. A photographers dream!
