Crossing the Nullabor....

The Nullabor (nullus "no" and abor, "tree") was pretty exciting, first to cross the Nullabor means we will be in WA and secondly, just west of the Head of the Great Australian Bite we spotted our first whales of the season.

1400kms in two days... It was massive!!

This part of the country has the longest straightest road in Australia, measuring in at 146.6kms of straight road with not a bend in it.

We stumbled across part of the Nullabor Links Golf Course. This 18-hole golf course spans 1,365kms from Kalgoolie, WA to Ceduna,SA and you play a hole in each participating town along the way. Each town has a tee, a green and a fairway in rugged outback terrain.... this is for the golf lover followers xxx

 The Eyre Highway also doubles in places as a landing strip (presumably for flying doctors, etc). It was all good and all us five lucky ducks were in the Nullabor-groove.
