Another dawn early start in Ceduna and today is the best leg of the journey yet. Although we’re in the middle of nothing the road section crosses the changing landscape of the Nullarbor, the edge of the Great Australian Bight, and the SA/WA border crossing. Needless to say today was the biggest day for photos
At the border village everyone gets inspected. You can’t bring in nuts/fruit/honey/seeds etc. They didn’t seem to mind the condom of cocaine hiding up my bottom as long as I handed over my box of Sultana Bran.
After the border it was plain sailing across another few hours to Cocklebiddy, arriving just on dusk and right before the petrol station closed up. I think Cocklebiddy is the most expensive place on earth. Petrol was $2.20 per litre and food was a fortune.
About 10kms north of the town is a dirt car park. On the northern edge there’s a road which you follow on dirt for around 15km and leads to a cave entrance. This entrance is the start of one of the longest underwater cave diving systems in the world. Out in the middle of nowhere. It was too dark by the time we arrived to go and take a look so will have to leave it for the next trip.
