There is a lovely foreshore and we parked the caravan and walked from there. There is the customary jetty with a number of people fishing. The water is very clear and we could see large fish quite close to the shore – apparently these are mullet which are a reasonable eating fish but difficult to catch as they do not take the hook and bait. Perhaps they could be caught with a net but we didn’t see that happening. Although there were a number of people fishing no one had caught anything.

Next stop was at the “township” of Nullabor which consists of the roadhouse with fuel, the customary camp area and basic cabins/motels. We contemplated booking into the camping area but decided against and were we pleased. Just a few kilometres out of “town” we joined the coast and saw the sign post to the Great Australian Bight Marine National Park. We pulled in, there was another group camping, so we had found our spot for the night and it is just beautiful. This area and the Head of the Bight which is 12 kms off the highway before Nullabor are the premier whale watching area of Australia but unfortunately we are ahead of the season which opens on the 1st May. Apparently up to 170 Southern Right Whales may gather at any one time – it would have been great to have seen these. Still the cliffs and views here at the Marine Park are spectacular so we think we will stay another night just to enjoy the quietness. In addition we cross the border into Western Australia about 100 kms further west and have to go through the quarantine so can’t take any fruit or vegetables with us. We have some fruit and vegetable eating, or cooking, to do before then! Fresh or uncooked fruit, vegetables and certain plant material will be confiscated.
