Western Australia Tour Part 1 - The Nullarbor

Nicholas Atkin - Saturday, July 23, 2011

As most Australians, we have been looking to drive the Nullarbor for quite some time.  For those of you unfamiliar, the Nullarbor is a road that travels the length of the Great Australian Bight and is the only road available when driving to Western Australia from the East Coast of Australia.

 

The drive across to WA took 3 days to complete. For the most part, the drive is long, straight and has very little to keep the eye occupied. For photographers this can get a little frustrating especially when you are on a photo shoot.  Never the less we completed the journey and managed to capture a few nice shots along the way.

Once we reached WA we headed south to the coast, specifically to Esperance.  After 3 long days of driving, primarily through desert and arid flatland's, the sight of Esperance, the sudden revival of grasslands, pastures and trees flooded the senses and so began our time in the photographic nirvana of Western Australia.
