Declared in 1979, the huge Nullarbor National Park is a 50-kilometre by 200-kilometre strip of the famous Nullarbor Plain, stretching from the head of the Great Australian Bight to the border of Western Australia. Along its southern edge, 80-metre-high cliffs drop to the deep blue of the Great Australian Bight Marine Park. In the north, the park joins the massive Nullarbor Regional Reserve, which extends to the Trans Australian Railway.
The Eyre Highway, Australia’s main east–west link, follows the line of this spectacular coast. In the past travellers battled bulldust, potholes and corrugations on the epic Nullarbor crossing. Today, the sealed road is excellent but the journey still remains incredible and the landscape is just as legendary. This is one of Australia’s unforgettable journeys.
