You will be traveling by 4WD in groups of 2 to 6 people and taking the "back roads". You will see places the average Nullarbor traveler never dreamed of, and you will be staying in either motel or hostel accommodation.

Take advantage of the knowledge of our experienced guides, traveling through a region that is unique in the world. It will be the cooler months of the year, but this is when this country is at its glorious best. You will see Southern Right Whales, numerous species of birds and wildflowers, and travel through an area steeped in history. Follow Edward John Eyre's epic expedition, visit the lonely grave of John Baxter (murdered on Eyre's expedition).

Along this route is the old Overland Telegraph Line, surveyed by John Forrest. You will even stay at the remote Eyre Telegraph Station. Feel the starkness of the Nullarbor and view the giant caverns under it. Experience the fury of the Southern Ocean smashing onto rugged coast and endless cliffs. Look for the graceful oceanic birds as they soar the cliff edges after a storm, or the Ospreys and bottle-nosed dolphins feeding in the secluded waters they prefer. Look for the Southern Hairy-Nosed Wombat, or stand on the open plain on a frosty night and be transfixed by the incredible beauty of a starry night in the crystal clear air of the outback sky.

The diversity of this tour is second to none and it is a must for those who want to enjoy the freedom and rugged beauty of this region, but still enjoy the comforts of civilization.
