The Great Australian Bight
The Edge of Australia

While the Nullarbor Plain borders much of the length of the Bight’s coastline The Great Australian Bight or “The Edge of Australia”, is the longest continuous cliff coast line in the Southern Hemisphere.  This is a place that takes our breath away every single time we stop there and watching passengers experience this for the first time is one of the best things about doing we what do.

What does The Great Australian Bight mean?  Great – large, magnificent, epic.  Australian – part of this great big amazing country we call home, Terra Australis.  Bight – in nautical terms, a large open bay.  Large as in 1160kms running from Cape Carnot in South Australia to Cape Pasley in Western Australia.

The bight came into existence when Gondwana broke apart and separated Antarctica from Australia around 50 million years ago.  The coastline of the Great Australian Bight is characterised by cliff faces (up to 60 metres or 200 feet high), surfing beaches and rock platforms, ideal for whale-watching. Its like Victoria’s Great Ocean Road on steroids!
