The Nullarbor Plain appears at first to be an open wasteland, a shrine to a dead sea that once flooded this part of the world. A place of isolation where thoughts of solitude intimately dances with the notions of going walk-about. For this week’s photo junket I thought I’d take you on a road-trip across the Nullarbor, and for me, a trip down memory lane. We encountered the fascinating treeless landscape of The Nullarbor Plain on a road trip from Melbourne to Perth. This adventure would see us relocate over 3500kms from one side of our vast country to the other all whilst driving a twenty year old Ford Fiesta. Needless to say our adventure across the Australian Outback was an action packed and unforgettable experience. The drive takes you along the Eyre Highway (A1) which stretches from Port Augusta to Norseman via some of the most remote towns in Australia before passing by the desolate Great Australian Bight. This almost endless stretch of straight road  can seem lonely at times and it is truly one of the most magnificent landscapes in the world!
