Best overnight stay when driving through the Nullarbor Plains - friendly hosts, fantastic scenery and great birdwatching. Give the Eyre Bird Observatory (EBO) a ring so they can book you in and provide details on how to get there. Don't attempt to drive in if...More

It is very important to realise that if you are in a two-wheel drive car, you can only get as far as the communication tower 14 kms in from the main highway. We missed our rendezvous as a result of a misunderstanding of this, which...More
