Cam and De do Australia
Well we've made it, we survived the Nullarbor! Its so Funny the reaction you get when you tell people you are crossing the Nullarbor. Everyone would look at us like we were crazy, and continued to tell us how boring it was. And it was, but it was also amazing! We did 2 hour stints each of driving on the straight highway. Trying to make way for all the Trucks and Road Trains…… having one of those bad boys pass you is a little bit intimidating! We had a beautiful but, fresh morning at the Head of Bight Whale lookout. It truly was magnificent, there is something just so calming and serene about being in the presence of whales. There were countless amount of wales in the bay that day, its like they were showing off for us. I thought it was so cute that one of the wales was sunning her belly the whole time, only to find out she was trying to avoid the 3 other whales from birthing her! Not such a cute situation. Poor thing! We camped for a night just before the Western Australian border and cooked up the last of our fruit and veggies before we crossed, as you cannot bring fresh fruit or veg through. So a few cooked veggies and stewed apples were the closest thing to fresh food we would see for days! The road houses along the way had a choice of sausage rolls, meat pies and hotdogs on the menu….if you were lucky. Thank goodness we were prepared. Our friend Rod from Fowlers Bay had told us about a great caravan park just in-between Noresman and Balladonia . When we pulled into Fraser Range it was like we drove into a different scene, it had no resemblance to the rest of the Nullarbor at all! It is surrounded by the largest hardwood forest in the world and was definitely a welcomed break along the way. With one more big day of driving we set off again. We were very relieved to finally get to Esperence stretch the legs and have a car free couple of days.
