While crossing the Nullarbor Plain is a bucket list item for many, some may be surprised to see there is far more than a ‘treeless’ plain to this popular trip. On the Adelaide side of the crossing, you’ve got the beautiful Eyre Peninsular to explore, brimming with fresh seafood, friendly locals and idyllic beaches. There’s great opportunity for spotting wildlife, including the Southern Right Whales from the Bunda Cliffs as you head towards the Nullarbor – more on that soon. You’ll drive Australia’s longest straight road, and you’ll find the scenery is continually changing as you head towards Norseman, passing the world’s longest golf course, the Nullarbor Links. Norseman represents the end of the crossing (or beginning) and is where you can make a decision to head out to the spectacular WA coastline, or continue your journey via Kalgoorlie, through the Golden Outback. Travelling south would be more popular, time permitting, with the turquoises waters framed with white beaches.  This information video gives more detail on exploring the south west corner of Western Australia.

We’ll be sharing our favourite highlights with you including just how close you get to the stunning Bunda Cliffs in the Great Australian Bight. Visit the Eyre Peninsular on the way, keep your eyes open for wildlife, and take the time to explore the southern Western Australia coastline after crossing the Nullarbor Plain.
