At first blush this 1,600-kilometre stretch of highway might seem devoid of anything interesting. But ask those who have travelled along its dusty length and you’ll usually hear the road makes for surreal travel.
As horizons warp and perspectives alter, questions present themselves. How did Indigenous Australia survive out here? How can the ground above Australia’s largest underwater lake be so arid? Whatever became of the Nullarbor Nymph? Much more than a whole lot of nothing, crossing the Nullarbor has become a rite of passage for travellers wanting to fathom Australia’s sheer vastness.

Timezones can be confusing when travelling across the southern coast of Australia. Adelaide works on Central Standard Time and Perth follows Western Standard Time – which is an hour and a half behind. Throw daylight savings times into the mix and you've got an extra hour of confusion.
