Roadtrip #3 – Crossing the Nullarbor

July 6, 2013

One of the musts – I think – you have to do, when you’re travelling in South of Australia. Crossing the Nullarbor was a great experience which Jackie and I loved and enjoyed very much. We basically drove 1,700km in 4 days the entire Eyre Highway that connects the west coast with Adelaide. In between is flat, almost treeless (hence “null arbor”), arid country with endless straight roads – the Nullarbor Plains, it’s the world’s largest piece of limestone. One part of that Highway has the longest straight stretch of road in the world – 145.6km –  and it wasn’t boring at all, it was fun driving in the sunshine on empty roads, enjoying the rugged landscapes, seeing awesome sunsets and sunrises, nice roadhouses, lots of wildlife even though mostly dead wildlife hit by the road trains. And in the end we even got a certificate!
