The Nullarbor is one of the most notorious road trips you can make here in Australia. It encapsulates the atmosphere of the outback, with the vast space spanning as far as the eye can see. The Nullarbor takes you from the Eyre Peninsula in South Australia all the way through to the goldfields in Western Australia. It’s the longest, flattest, and straightest road in Australia, which goes on for 1,256 kilometres. While it’s not for the faint-hearted, it does promise to be one of the most beautiful trips you can take, with incredible views, a plethora of wildlife, and many adventures to be had.
Technically, Nullarbor means “no trees” in Latin, which is quite true for most of this road trip. It’s a stunningly gorgeous, but incredibly vast stretch of land, particularly along the Ninety-Mile Straight, which is the longest stretch of road without a bend in Australia. However, there are spots along the road that have some flora and fauna unique to the area, but this is few and far between, so take the time to appreciate it when you see it!
If you have the time, there are plenty of stops that are well worth taking the time to explore and enjoy. Some of these spots are natural beauties, and others are attractions that will truly be a once in a lifetime activity - did someone say golf in the middle of the outback?
