If you really want to experience the Australian Outback then you need to head west of Adelaide and east of Perth to a vast expanse of land known as the Nullarbor Plain. The Nullabor Plain runs along the southern boarder between the states of South and West Australia, and sits just north of a large bay that is named the Great Australian Bight. Two friends and I spent a week driving along the Great Australian Bight, which was part of a much larger road-trip that went from Margarets River to Sydney. Our vehicle was a 1971 VW kombi that was named Margaret after Margarets River, and cost only $900AUD. (Note: the fuel cost close to $1100AUD to cross the continent of Australia).

Along the way we saw some wild animals such as: Quokkas, Camels, and Kangaroos. We also scored some amazing waves at Bells Beach and Winkipop!

DO: If you are headed to Australia you should spend at least 3 months in the country. This will give you enough time to see all of the beautiful places that are tucked away and less visited by other tourists.

LOOK FOR: When driving across the Nullarbor Plain keep your eyes open for the Nullarbor Nymph, who is a half-naked blonde woman that lives among the kangaroos and wears kangaroo skins.
