South AustraliaNullarbor PlainOne of the longest stretches of straight roads in the world (147 kilometers to be precise) - the Nullabor is a voyage of self-discovery. Arid, mostly tree-less, vast, and remote - this truly is one of the country's best road trips.
For a true taste of the Western Australian outback head east to the Nullarbor Plain. This massive stretch of land is home to the Eyre Highway, one of the country’s self-drive best road trips, as well as the transcontinental railway line, used by the Indian Pacific train. The Nullarbor Plain stretches between Norseman in Western Australia and Ceduna in South Australia – at its widest point it's about 1,200 kilometres. Tackling the Nullarbor is an odyssey of self-discovery and a challenge to be met – you can even buy the car sticker proclaiming “I crossed the Nullarbor”. This great treeless plain includes the amazing sea cliffs of the Great Australian Bight accessible by a short detour from the highway. For a close-up view of the majestic southern right whales call into the Head of the Bight, May to October. Wildlife is plentiful – keep an eye out for kangaroos, emus, dingoes and wedge-tailed eagles. There are also many caves scattered throughout the area however most are not accessible due to the instability of the limestone. The Nullarbor Plain starts in Western Australia in Norseman which is a two-hour drive south of Kalgoorlie.

You venture passed the wonderful whales and beautiful coastline at Nullarbor, to arrive at the beaches at Eucla and the remains of Skylab at Balladonia. The working sheep station at Fraser Range and the indigenous art and dance of Ngadju people in Norseman, features strongly in national and international appeal. Nickel mining and land sailing at Kambalda and then finally arriving at Australia's gold capital, Kalgoorlie. T his is the real Australia. But more importantly Ladies and Gentleman, Nullarbor Links belongs to Western Australia and South Australia. You can't play Nullarbor Links on the Gold Coast; you can't play it at the Sydney Opera House. Certainly, Melbourne can't pinch it.
