With two full tanks of fuel, plenty of drinking water and most importantly an iPad loaded with podcasts & audio books the Nullarbor begins, all 2700 kms of it, the same distance from London to Moscow!
Bunda cliffs was our first overnight stop which is literally a parking bay just off the highway. Unbeknownst to the many passers by the cliff is a sheer 60 metre drop to the pounding surf. Magnificent.
We made tracks at sunrise towards border town and Eucla having eaten all remaining fruit and veg the night before (veggie pizzas, yum!)... Despite stringent searching and a little sweet talking from Jen we cleared the heavy boarder security into WA.
Crossing the border meant that we passed a few time zones and found an extra 3 hours. On day two of the Nullarbor we drove almost 10 hours (13 including stops).
On the home straight, or so we throught..
...not before spotting the largest limestone cave system which breathes in and out with changing air pressure.
Some would say Fraser station ends the Nullarbor, its distinct change in fauna certainly made it feel like the end for us. As the sun sets we say goodbye to a unique "stretch".
Norseman peak hour, on our way back to civilization, Esperance.
