My wife and I purchased Nullarbor Traveller in 2004 so 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. An area that is so magnificent and diverse and also an extremely underrated Australian destination. Which is partly what makes it so special. Its 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 walk way and over on the right you have the huge Bunda Cliffs which go right across the top of the Great Australian Bight. They are massive sheer cliffs with rugged coastline bashing against them over millions of years which has made them so straight and 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 abundant southern right whales that go there to birth and to mate so seeing these whales and their young frolicking around in the water just adds another level of ‘wow ‘to it.
