Here we go again!
Before taking off we went shopping in Coles.
Next to Kalgoorlie is Coolgardie, just to confuse things a little…so we passed there too.
Don’t ask…we just don’t know what it is…and why it is on top of a building…
Today we will start a long drive and eventually drive over the Nullarbor. Our first stop was Norseman where we jumped in the pool they had there, had lunch, switched drivers and took off to reach Balladonia Roadhouse. This is also the first time we met the two Estonian guys travelling parallel to us for the rest of the the time on the same kind of car as us.
We picked a little spot where we hung up our pretty fairy lights and had a nice night. Though anywhere we wanted to put our tent the ground looked like this…ants…
Next morning the signs tell us we will se camels…mhm…
Let’s just go on that longest stretch of road shall we?
Trust me when i say it is pretty booooring when a road is thaaat straight and there are barely any other cars…and no camels either…
Eucla is the border town…town? Well station point where you need to quarantine fruits you have from WA…
Or just take a picture of the signs as usual 🙂
Now the 4 travelling backpackers were a tiny bit clueless coming to what time it is in the future….in South Australia. So we just didn’t care. I mean we are in the middle of nowhere, who cares what time it is?
We are still told we will se some camels…
I was the only one out of the car to take the picture with the sign, yes I know, such a tourist! But the guys decided to leave me behind…
A car came from the other direction, but they weren’t interested in stopping either…they just pushed their horn..hey to you too! Backpackers! Gotta live thema!
In the red centre were camel signs…but no camels. So i started thinking these signs must be old..
Below you can see wild grapes. They grow on small bushes.
Tada! Camels! Saw them in two different spots! First time 4 of them and then another 8! Wooohoo! Wild camels! Yeah baby! It sure confused me a bit though. Didn’t feel like I was in this continent…
It was getting dark so the pictures aren’t the sharpest. Also saw a fox and something white that was hopping around, but too far for any of us to know what it was…
We finally find a place to sleep. Scenic Lookout it’s called. I have never ever felt the finest sand as I did on this place. Everywhere. As it is sooo fine it can go everywhere and it’s not easy to get off. It did not help that the wind was like crazy! Look how we attached the tent! Shovel, jerry can, car!
The wind was strong since we were right here. Next stop Antarctica!
Fuel stop for us and the car in Yalata
Don’t know why the light was on…
Reached Ceduna where we did some shopping and had dinner.
For the Greek readers:
In Ceduna we met the Estonians again. We knew where we were sleeping this night and told them to go there too.
Toooo shallow…we never reached a deep spot. It all went up above our knees…not even to the thighs…
Found a perfect spot to set camp! We also met an English couple here and we’ve seen these guys earlier along the road too. So we all camped here.
From the ‘front’
Next morning. Tide is low!
There were other people there, but they lived fancy
Today I want ice cream!
Port Augusta is our stop, camping next to the river. The Estonian guys told the reception we were coming and saved us a spot next to them 🙂
Port Augusta is a small town. We went by a national park to go to a look out and then continued to some historical sights.
Up there in the cave where Aboriginal art. Some descriptions were given to you before so you know what it is you see. I remembered one…
Another one for the Greek readers 🙂
Hancock Lookout was a beautiful spot!
So where do we sleep tonight?
Kitchen with disco lights!
Good night for now!
