Just another 644km – phew
After our first overnight stop at Moodini Bluff (East of Madura) with lots of other free loaders, we set off to cross into South Australia and travel along the Great Australian Bight. We were very lucky with our travel day as the top temperature only got as high as 27 degrees so we didn’t have to battle the extreme temperatures that were expected in Perth and Kalgoorlie.
As we put more kilometers between us and Moodini Bluff the winds picked up and we had to slow down to 80kms per hour to keep the car on the road. The landscape changed a little over time but it was mostly salt bush with no trees. In other parts there were small trees. We even travelled along a range of hills called the Hampton Tablelands, this is where the eagles must have come from.
Mundrubilla – Cheap Nullarbor Standards
Wombat Sign – we are definitely in South Australia – where is Edward Pollards and Tina Turner!
Windsock fully extended – petrol consumption pathetic – driving conditions tough
Since we began our travels we had not had a caravan shake when big trucks passed us – not so today. The longer we were on the road the shakier it became but not dangerously so, especially when open trucks passed us like car carriers.
And when you think they have all the loot – Nullarbor Road House – give it a miss with a big tank on the way home
