Join us on this magical tour across the Nullarbor Plain, visiting some of the wonderful coastal towns of South Australia along the Great Australian Bight.
Arrive into Adelaide where you will be met by your Aussie Redback Tours team. We travel directly to the heritage-listed town of Burra for our overnight stay. (D)
Departing Burra, we make our way to the Flinders Ranges through Orroroo and Hawker (gateway to the Flinders) – our home for two nights. (B,D)
This morning we visit the wonderful little town of Blinman. Historic Blinman is the highest town in South Australia, set deep in the heart of the Flinders Ranges. In the afternoon we visit Wilpena Pound, and the interesting old Wilpena Station, an amazingly kept piece of Australian history. (B,D)
We leave Hawker today and make our way to Port Augusta, Whyalla, Arno Bay, Tumby Bay and Spencer’s Gulf, arriving at Port Lincoln (seafood capital of Australia” for our two-night stay. (B,D)
Today we explore Port Lincoln. With its population of 14,000, Port Lincoln is a major commercial centre for the Eyre Peninsula and a popular destination for visitors. In the afternoon we will discover Australia’s largest commercial fishing fleet and our millionaire’s playground. Hear about the history and future of the Lincoln Cove Marina on a cruise, as well as a brief overview of Port Lincoln’s various fishing industries.(B,D)
We leave Port Lincoln today and make our way up the coast to Coffin Bay, Waterloo Bay, and Elliston. We visit Murphy’s Haystacks on the way. These ancient wind-worn pillars and boulders of pink granite are estimated to be over 1,500 million years old. Set in the middle of a wheat field and surrounded by mallee scrub, they are one of the most popular and photographed attractions on the Eyre Peninsula. Overnight at Streaky Bay.
Today we travel west past Ceduna, a town which has played an important but minor role in Australia’s overall development due to it being a fishing port and railway hub. We continue along the longest straight road in the world – “90 mile straight” – taking in the sights of the Great Australian Bight along the way, stopping at the Nullarbor Motel, Eucla for the night. (B,D)
Our journey across the Nullarbor continues as we travel from Eucla to Balladonia today.
Departing Balladonia, we continue on National Highway 1, which takes us through Dundas Nature Reserve, Norseman and past Lake Johnson – a beautiful sight on the Norseman-Hyden road. We spend the night at Hyden. (B,D)
Before leaving Hyden this morning we visit the very interesting Mulka’s Cave. The name “Mulka” comes from an Aboriginal legend associated with the cave. Mulka was the illegal son of woman who fell in love with a man with whom marriage was forbidden according to their law. We also visit the popular tourist spot – Wave Rock – a natural rock formation shaped like a tall breaking ocean wave. We continue the last leg of our journey, returning to Perth in the late afternoon. (B)
