My wife and I purchased Nullarbor Traveller in 2004 and for the past 15 years having been taking passengers from all of the world on our wildlife and adventure tours throughout the southern parts of Australia. These regions are so magnificent and diverse and they’re also extremely underrated Australian destinations. Which is partly what makes them so special. They are untouched, remote, pristine and what we call the real Australia. Here’s my Top 3 South Australia Destinations!
#1 – Head of Bight
Number one is an easy one and there’s no question that this is my favourite place in Australia. Head of the Bight, which is the highest part of the Great Australian Bight on the southern coastline of Australia. It has an amazing coastal lookout and to try and paint a picture of what that lookout is like, you stand on a walkway and over on the right you have the huge Bunda Cliffs which go right across the top of the Great Australian Bight. These massive, sheer cliffs were formed by the waves bashing against the rugged coastline over millions of years. The view is just spectacular. And on the other side you have the creamiest white sand dunes you have ever seen. So it’s a real contrast.
At certain times of the year you can stand there, and you can breathe it, you can smell it and you can really feel it. There’s something so special about this place and if you can slow yourself down, your mind wanders as you look to the sea. In the winter months you can see the southern right whales that go there to birth and mate. Seeing these whales with their young frolicking around in the water just adds another level of ‘wow ‘to it.
