Nullarbor Plain

Ceduna marked the start of our 1200 km trip across the Eyre Highway from SA to WA via the Nullarbor Plain – the world’s largest limestone landscape, which was once a part of the ocean floor!

Eyre Peninsula

We drove round the Eyre Peninsula and stopped in all of the beautiful bays and fishing ports along the way, taking in the amazing coastal scenery

Flinders Ranges

Around the third week in April 2014 we were in close proximity to the Flinders Ranges, passing through the industrial town of Port Pirie and also Port Augusta – known as the crossroads of Australia, where major roads from the north, south, east and west all intersect.

We enjoyed a day sightseeing in the state’s cultured capital
