Days 9-10 Crossing the Nullarbor

There were many warnings about crossing the Nullarbor – “no gas for 700km!”, “the roads are unsealed!”. Perhaps many years ago, however, the Nullarbor of today is a smooth, long, stretch of sealed highway with roadhouses and petrol around every 200km. Quite uneventful apart from some coastal views and me almost hitting a dingo.

We did the 1100km+ in one day, but padded it with some rest on either end – a quiet day that ended with a beautiful Ceduna sunset, and a night after the drive at a old outback sheep station that is now a campground, Fraser Range Sheep Station.

I knit for about 900km and drove 200km. - Mum
