Crossing the vast expanses of the Nullarbor is an Australian rite of passage. Endless sunburnt desert home to kangaroos and surprisingly close to the roar of the ocean, navigating these wild, wide-open spaces is not only one of the world’s great road trips. It’s a unique opportunity to connect with Country and have moments of presence in nature that will be imprinted on your mind forever.
Since 2004, we have been the only tour company in Australia running monthly scheduled tours across the Nullarbor on our Adelaide to Perth camping and accommodated tours. Why? Because thousands of travellers we have taken on this bucket list adventure have been transformed, wondering why they didn’t come sooner. And that is the magic of what we do.
As the saying goes, the journey is just important as the destination. For many Australians, crossing the Nullarbor is a quintessential experience of the Australian outback. For international travellers, it offers an iconic taste of Australiana and the chance to encounter abundant native wildlife set to a backdrop of raw and rugged country.
What is the Nullarbor Plain? 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 1,100 kilometres from east to west across the border between South Australia and Western Australia, the landscape is unique and varied. Along the way, you’ll find seaside cave systems, rugged ocean cliffs, undulating sand dunes and sun-worn ruins providing testament to Australia’s history.
From extremely well-preserved meteorite deposits to the world’s longest golf course, the Nullarbor is as unique as it is vast. The idea for the 18-hole golf course, the Nullarbor Links, emerged between couple of highway business operators over a bottle of red, and the rest is history. Players can pick up a scorecard and play holes at various sites along the 1,600-kilometre road. They can claim a certificate for playing the ” World’s Longest Golf Course” on presenting the completed card.
One of the many highlights when crossing the Nullarbor is the opportunity during whale-watching season to spot magnificent Southern Right Whales and their young taking shelter in the Great Australian Bight. The Bunda Cliffs at Head of Bight is unquestionably one of the most breathtaking coastal lookouts in Australia. Here you will stand on the edge of Australia, where the Nullarbor drops dramatically into the Southern Ocean.
