Day 4

Today we finish our road trip across the Nullarbor and make our way to Ceduna, located on the shores of Murat Bay on the west coast of Eyre Peninsula. The name Ceduna is a corruption of the local Aboriginal word Chedoona and is said to mean a place to sit down and rest. The town has played an important but minor role in Australia’s overall development due to it being a fishing port and a railway hub. We spend some time here, before taking the Flinders Highway to Streaky Bay, our evening stop. (B,D)
