Madura Pass, across the Nullarbor. WA

Madura Pass in Western Australia along the Nullarbor is isolated and the days to drive are one's personal choice.  It's not always a good idea to travel between dusk and sunrise due to native animals.
The animals you well may see are: Camels, Kangaroos, Emus, Dingoes, Wombats, Wild Cats, Rabbits, Snakes, Wedgetail Eagles, Lizzards, Crows and so on.
There is no phone service only at the Roadhouses and very little water, it's best you take your own.
Norseman and Ceduna are the main towns and are 1,300km apart.
We have travelled this Highway twice so far from West to East both times.


Sign as how far to go either way.


Some scenery from the Pass.


Then we come to Nullarbor Road House, a view towards the road.


The Road House where you can get petrol and accommodation plus food.
There a a few more places along the Nullarbor but it can be a lonely road.

  4. I should imagine that you really need a car that is in tip top condition travelling along this highway.

  5. I guess that is where you are when you say "Its in the middle of nowhere". A friend of mine did a long trip from Adelaide to Darwin. She said it was funny hearing the GPS say "drive for 1,300 km and turn left."

    1. Could say that Diane, 'in the middle of nowhere' but that road leads to SA or WA depends which way you are traveling. I know your friends feeling...it's even odd feeling when you arrive in Darwin and think I really can't go any further north at that point.
