Our Beautiful World

At Our Beautiful World this week #37 the theme is 'ROAD'. This road photo is of the Eyre Highway which runs some 2700km between Perth and Adelaide, Australia and crosses the Nullabor Plain which is about half of that distance.  Travelling this road is mighty boring at times with some very long stretches of straight road.  The Caiguna to Balladonia stretch is 182 kms and according to Wikipedia "while the road contains the longest straight section of tarred road in Australia (146.6 km, 91.1 mi)." The countryside is sparsely vegetated and there are very few people and petrol stops need to be planned.

Here's my hubby Stephen - thinking about driving now....he had clocked up thousands and thousands of k's and hours not counting those he's driven for work.
This part of the journey is along the Great Australia Bight which opens out onto the Indian Ocean. The Eyre Highway travels close to the cliffs of the "Bight" and we stopped for some photos.

  5. Hello Robyn, I've heard of this road before and think it a daunting task to drive it :-) But Australia is so beautiful and so different from the Netherlands where I live, one day I would love to pay a very long visit to your beautiful country. Love your photos and story, they fit the word Road perfectly! Wishing you a sweet Sunday.


Thank you for taking the time to comment, all encouragement and inspiration is very welcome. May your day be a happy and extra special one, cheers Robyn
