Rod & Debi Drive across the Nullarbor
a trip by Rod Muller
From: April 23rd 2012
Until: May 18th 2012
Tell anyone you're driving the Nullarbor and you'll get one of two reactions. The first is usually a mixture of bewilderment, pity and horror: "It's so long and boring - why don't you fly, or at least catch the train? It'll take days and there's nothing to see." Others look at you enviously: "Wow, I've always wanted to do that!"
The Nullarbor's like that. There's no denying it's a long trip - three days, maybe more: it covers an area equivalent to England, Belgium, the Netherlands and Switzerland, with 7000km2 left over. And it's definitely flat, with long sections of empty straight between tiny settlements where shopping, nightlife and good coffee is non-existent. But once you've done the trip you could never argue that it's boring, nor could you say there's nothing to see.
