Nullarbor Ho! (again)

The Eyre Highway starts at Norseman  — a small town that's your last chance to fill up with fuel at a reasonable cost. The next reasonably priced fuel is at Ceduna in South Australia, a distance of 1,200 kms.  Eucla, just over the SA/WA border, is probably the best bet for fuel on the Nullarbor itself.

This was Levi's first long trip and first time leaving his birth state of Western Australia. He handled it all with his usual enthusiasm and acceptance of whatever comes his way.

There are many free camping spots along the Eyre Highway - some have toilets and dump points and I usually try and stay in these. The main reason for using them is they are usually slightly cleaner than those without — less toilet paper around!

There are some magnificent spots along the cliffs just after the SA/WA border with spectacular views over the Great Australian Bight and, between June and October, the Southern Right Whales breed and give birth here
