The Nullarbor and The Great Australian Bight blow your mind as you are amazed by remote national parks, stunning bush scenery and during whale watching season spotting Southern Right Whales from the rugged Bunda Cliffs. Our favourite lookout in Australia!
What is The Nullarbor? Basically meaning “no trees” the Nullarbor Plain is the world’s largest single exposure of limestone bedrock, and occupies an area of about 200,000 square kilometres, stretching about 1,100 kilometres from east to west across the border between South Australia and Western Australia.
“Crossing the Nullarbor” has become a rite of passage for backpackers and for Australians it is the quintessential experience of the “Australian Outback“. The sheer scale of the scenery has a powerful impact on those that take the 1660km journey as travelling across the vast Nullarbor Plain is not only one of the world’s great road trips, its a unique opportunity to encounter abundant native wildlife up close.
Not only is The Nullarbor known for its extremely well preserved meteorite deposits that have crashed to earth from the southern skies, it also features an 18 hole golf course called the Nullarbor Links. A couple of highway business operators had this crazy idea over a few drinks and the rest is history. Players can pick up a score card and play holes at various sites along the journey and on presenting the completed card at the end you can claim a certificate for playing “the World’s Longest Golf course.”
You will never see a sky so brilliant as on our Nullarbor tours with an IMAX version of the southern skies something you will never forget.
