Crossing the Nullarbor

Day 1 L, D

Home - Perth - Northam
After flying into Perth, travel to Midland, north east of Perth for lunch. Continue on to Northam on the Avon River, in the heart of the picturesque Avon Valley. Enjoy a local guide’s perspective of this historic town before settling in for our overnight stay.

Day 2 B, L, D

Northam - Kalgoorlie
After a hearty breakfast we take the Great Eastern Highway through Meckering, a town made famous by its earthquake of October 1968. As we travel through the wheat belt with its vistas of small towns, farm lands, granite rock outcrops and scenic hills, keep an eye out for wildflowers along the roadside. Stop for a picnic lunch along the way before arriving into Coolgardie which is the original site of Western Australia’s goldrush of the 1890s. Continue on to Kalgoorlie, where we will stay for the next two nights.

Day 3 B, D

Kalgoorlie Super Pit
As you explore Kalgoorlie today you will realise the foresight CY O’Connor had when he instigated the 563 kilometre long water pipeline, back in 1903. Notice the beautifully restored civic buildings, unusual pubs and a bronze statue of Paddy Hannan. This morning take a guided tour of the Kalgoorlie Super Pit, Australia’s largest gold producing mine. Enjoy some free time to browse the shops and purchase your own lunch. See Hammond Park with animals and birds surrounding the miniature Bavarian Castle built from local gemstones, before returning to your motel for dinner. (Please be aware that when visiting the Kalgoorlie Super Pit, long sleeve shirts, long pants and closed in shoes are required and you must also be able to pass an alcohol breath test of 0.00%.)

Day 4 B, L, D

Kalgoorlie - Esperance
Leaving behind Kalgoorlie, we travel through the centre of Kambalda, before enjoying lunch in Norseman. The ‘Great Ocean Drive’ will provide you with an understanding of why Esperance is known as having some of the best coastal scenery.

Day 5 B, D

Recherche Archipelago - Esperance Stonehenge
Today we cruise from Esperance through the Recherche Archipelago. The region is known as the Bay of Islands with a collection of 110 islands within the area. It is renowned as a haven for marine life and, if you are lucky, you might see fur seals, dolphins and, perhaps even a Southern Right Whale. After disembarking purchase your own lunch before our visit to the Esperance Stonehenge, a full sized replica of the original Stonehenge in the UK, as it would have looked around 1950BC.

Day 6 B, L, D

Esperance - Balladonia
After farewelling this beautiful part of Australia, travel north to our lunch stop in Norseman. According to legend, the town was named after a horse 'Hardy Norseman'. Visit the bronze statue that stands proudly in recognition of the part the horse played in establishing the town. Following lunch, continue on to Balladonia where you canvisit the local cultural heritage museum before checking in for our overnight stay.

Day 7 B, L, D

Balladonia - Eucla
Continue along the Eyre Highway to Caiguna which features one of the longest known straight stretches of highway. The Nullarbor Plain is the world’s largest single exposure of limestone bedrock and occupies an area of about 200,000 square kilometres. At its widest point, it stretches about 1,100 kilometres from east to west. Continue on through Cocklebiddy, Madura and Mundrabilla enroute to Eucla where the Telegraph Station is located, partly buried in sand. Photos of the old township are in the museum at our accommodation.

Day 8 B, L, D

Eucla - Ceduna
As we leave Eucla Pass, white sand plains stretch far ahead. East of the border, see the spectacular views of the Southern Ocean from the lookouts as we travel along the Great Australian Bight. Following lunch at the Nullarbor Roadhouse, visit Head of the Bight Visitors Centre with the opportunity to spot Southern Right Whales from the boardwalks. Drive through Nundroo and Penong to coastal Ceduna for our overnight stay.

Day 9 B, L, D

Ceduna - Port Augusta
Cross the Eyre Peninsula seeing vast grain fields near Kimba before continuing on to the head of Spencer Gulf—Port Augusta. Visit the Wadlata Outback Centre, an award winning complex, epitomising the early days in the remote areas of Australia where transport differed greatly from present day.

Day 10 B, L, D

Port Augusta - Glenelg
Follow the eastern side of the Spencer Gulf through Port Germein to Port Pirie, where you will see late 19th and early 20th century heritage buildings which tell the stories of Port Pirie’s people and its industries including smelting, railway and shipping.
