As we drove into Coolgardie this morning we knew it was not going to be our stop for the night. The town reminded us very much of Coober Pedy – dusty and with mounds of dirt all around the town where prospectors had dug in search of their fortune. After a quick wander around it was into the motorhome and driving the 190km back to Norseman – we made the decision to start the Nullabor journey.
Norseman is the gateway to the Nullabor Plain on the Eyre Highway and the distance between Norseman and Ceduna (the other end of the Plain) is approximately 1250km. We estimate that it is going to take us three or four days (with stops) to arrive at Ceduna. Our park up for tonight is a free camp, Ten Mile Rocks, 87km east of Norseman. There are quite a few other vans here at the site so there is no chance we will be lonely.
We have been advised that there is very little cell phone coverage between Norseman and Ceduna. If you are trying to contact us, please leave a message and we will call you back as soon as we get coverage. It may not be for a few days.
