Great Australian Bight

Crossing the Nullabor
Gotta be one of the great roadtrips of the World David, and only the tough dare endure it. Lovely pics that are so Australian, they really take me home though the Nullabor is still waiting for us. Pleased to hear of the insects as in Russia we learnt that the declining insect populations are measured by the "windsceen test". Yep...the number of insects that splatt on car windscreens. Maybe there is hope for Australia after al!!!

Splat!
As painful as they can be, I certainly would not want to live in a world without bugs. I hope my experience is a sign of a healthy population, even if they were annoying at times!

A fabulous accomplishment
Crossing the entirety of Australia is something we really want to do 'one day'... the Nullarbor has always fascinated me, but maybe I should heed your caution about expectations :) Well done for accomplishing such a massive driving feat!

Thanks!
There are still places of isolation to be found, but you have to head further north, I think. The highway only skims the southern edge of the Nullarbor. I will be exploring more in the years to come, and I hope you don't let my expectations dissuade you from visiting the Nullarbor!

Sure were!
You've got to love coincidences that happen when you travel! Purely accidental that I was in town for that.

Surfers Cove

Beautiful scene
I've always thought surfers were brave or crazy... maybe a bit of both.

Peaceful easy feeling
I hate that your time in Western Australia is nearing the end as we have enjoyed traveling along with you. I'm glad you've got your wine and chocolates. Your 4 wheel drive guide has come in handy.

I'm glad I did too!
Thanks for reading, and the kind words.

The only human there
I loved your descriptions of the drive and great choice for a camping spot. I can't imagine the serenity of being out there feeling all alone. Marvelous. Great whale shots. I never tie of them. I'm glad to here people are taking advantage of this drive.

Head of the Bight ...
Hi Dave. Aren't the Head of the Bight and the Nullarbor Plain just most amazing places? We took 5 days to cross the Nullarbor, both going and coming, and weren't bored either time. People will say that the Nullarbor is boring and that there's nothing to see. All I can say is -they aren't looking! The Head of the Bight is a must-see at any time but, particularly during whale-watching season and the boardwalk along the cliff tops, makes viewing easy.. When there and we asked, "about how many whales are there today?" were told, "not many, there's only about 35 today!" :) The scenery of the Bunda Cliffs stretching for miles along the coastline is nothing short of spectacular. Fuel-wise - coming home will be easier as you should have tailwinds. Headwinds going over - tailwinds coming home. Thanks for a great blog. Brings back a lot of (very happy) memories. Safe travels.

I am going to make sure I have more time on the way back, especially for the cliffs!

Always planning the next
The true measure of a world traveler is that restlessness that always has you planning that next adventure or two. We always love a road trip and you planned a great one. Thanks for taking us along.
19th September 2019

True!
I've half-booked for southern Africa next year! Thanks for the kind words.

Great pics beautiful place!
Maybe one day Dave ... when Claudia decides to get a 4wd ... we’ll retrace your steps / tire tracks and head down to this place.
19th September 2019

There's still plenty to see and do without a 4wd!

My comment title says it all - I totally agree with your comments on the Eyre Peninsula. I know it is stunning although I didn't have the 'off-road' experiences you have, I just loved the whole area across the bottom of Oz and this brings back such great memories. Looking forward to the next instalment and I'm sure when you leave Mundrabilla, your head will feel much better than mine did - that was the spot at which a tanker driver literally took a stainless steel bucket of white wine from the trailer and gave it to the girls behind the bar and, along with some other patrons, we spent the night drinking for free. Was good at the time but we paid for it next morning.

I bet!
I camped instead, and have no alcohol with me. I did stay up late taking photos of the milky-way though!
