We actually started driving from Melbourne but after taking a detour along The Great Ocean Road and stopping off in Adelaide it was time to make the drive. Crossing the Nullarbor starts from Ceduna when heading East to West, this is the last town you will see until Norseman in WA 1200km away. Ceduna is also the start of the Nullarbor Links, the Worlds Longest Golf Course that we intended on playing to break up the journey.
Due to Kangaroos it was risky to drive through the night and since we were heading West we spent most of the time driving into the setting sun. Officially the Nullarbor ends in Norseman but we continued to Perth. The drive took us three days and during that time I took photographs from the backseat every hour to see how the landscaped changed throughout the journey.
I had heard many things about the Nullarbor before leaving and the main thing people told me was there is nothing out there. After reaching Perth I can say that’s not necessarily true. There are things you will see crossing the Nullarbor that you won’t see anywhere else in the world, the Great Australian Bight, 90 Mile Straight and of course the Worlds Longest Golf Course.
Below is the photo journal of our drive, see for yourself if the landscape changes while crossing the Nullarbor and if you look closely you can get a small insight into our life on the road.
