Chris
Strange no one has give you a reply so far, I would say there are too many sights to see between Home and Perth , mant towns you will pass through and they all have something of interest , I'll give you a small list for SA & WA .
Adelaide...Mt Lofty Lookout.
Birdwood... Motor Museum
Barossa Valley... Wineries
Pt Augusta.... short run to Quorn
Eucla.... Old Telegraph Stn
Nullabor... Cliff Views or Great Aust' Bight,
Kalgoorlie.... Old Hotels, Museums, Lookout

And check these websites for all other towns

Hi Chris,

We are currently in the middle of a trip similar to the one you describe.

I would reccommend:-

Victoria:-
Otway Lighthouse
Otway treetop walk
12 Apostles helicopter ride
Portland
Camping at Swan Lake, (in between Portland and Mt Gambier)

South Australia:-
Barossa and Clare Valleys
Adelaide
Mannum - free camping here!!!
Port Broughton for crabbing
Camping at Fitzgerlad Bay (near Whyalla) You can camp on the water and look out over the Spencer Gulf and you can see the Flinders Ranges
The Streaky Bay Hotel Motel is a great pub

we are in ceduna at the moment so I cannot reccommend anything in WA. Have a great trip!!!

Hi. There have been a few posts on crossing the Nullarbor recently. I'd suggest you take your time and take as many side trips as possible. Also check out some of the TREKS on the site as well as the PLACES. It's all good, you wont be bored, and there will still be plenty to do on the return trip.
Rod, Perth
