Day02 Coodlie Park, Eyre Peninsula
If there’s one thing Australia does well, it’s big things: the Big Pineapple, the Big Banana, the Big Merino… the list goes on. Keep your cameras at the ready for the lesser-known Big Galah, an eight-metre-high fibreglass structure overlooking the gift shop in the tiny town of Kimba. After a quick pit stop for lunch, it’s back on the road to Venus Bay, Talia Caves and the Lake Newland sand dunes (where adrenaline junkies can test out their sand boarding skills). In the afternoon we’ll pull in to Coodlie Park for a night’s stay on a working farm.
Day03 Coodlie Park
Just up the road from Coodlie Park lies Baird Bay, an environment famed for its watery wildlife. This morning you’ll get the option to swim, snorkel and splash about with playful sea lions and dolphins on a 3-hour cruise. This outsource adventure done by Baird Bay eco tours is an optional experience. Following a picnic lunch on the beach, we’ll continue driving along the coast to our secluded camping spot in Fowlers Bay. Today we drive approx 5 hours, in total with stops along the way.
Day04Great Australian Bight
Days don’t get much more Australian than this one. Not only do we cross the 5,320-kilometre-long dingo fence this morning; we also take a snap or two at the famous wombat, emu, camel road sign on the Nullarbor and stop off at Bunda Cliffs to see where Australia, quite literally, drops into the ocean. Come arvo we cross the border into WA, where tonight’s free entertainment is provided courtesy of the celestial sphere.
Day05 Nullarbor Plain – Great Australian Bight
With their planetary sounding names and strewn about space junk, the small towns of Balladonia and Norseman have a slightly intergalactic atmosphere about them. Balladonia shot to worldwide fame in 1979 when the Skylab space station returned to earth here rather abruptly. Continue the drive to Esperance, which may seem like a bustling metropolis after five days in the desert.
